Phil’s henchmen bundled Jack into the back of a van

The secret of Sharons baby daddy has already killed Mel in EastEnders, who took it to her grave after battling with Sharon to reveal the truth to Phil.

But now Lisa Fowler knows the truth, and has finally managed to persuade Phil that he isnt the father of his wifes baby.

Realising that Sharon had lied about visiting Mel at the clinic, Phil finally put two and two together.

He then got further proof when he and Ben did some digging and realised that Sharon had bought a villa under Mels name.

He realised that Mel must have known the baby secret and used it to blackmail her.

Phil thinks Jack is the father of Sharon’s baby

Phil is getting closer to the truth, but was thrown off scent when Ben found Sharons necklace at Jack Brannings house.

Wednesdays nights episode saw Jack kidnapped by Phils henchmen and taken to the Arches for a brutal beating.

Phil gagged him and dropped him in the infamous mechanics pit – the Mitchells favourite location for torture – and told him he wouldnt get away with betraying him.

How does it feel knowing how much I’m going to hurt you? I’m going to enjoy this.”

Phil then doused Jack in petrol in an attempt to set fire to him.

But before he could throw on the flames, Ben arrived on the scene and wrestled the lighter out of his hand.

With his gag removed, Jack whimpered: “Whatever’s happened down there has got nothing to do with me.”

But that only infuriated Phil further, with him grabbing a gun and pointing it squarely at Jack’s head.

He raved: “You’ve had kids with my sister, now my wife? Oh you really didn’t think I’d find out?

“Well everyone who betrays me gets what they deserve. Everyone.”

Keanu looked on with tears in his eyes as Phil prepared to shoot Jack – will he pipe up and step in to stop the carnage?

Or will Phil pull the trigger?
