PHIL Mitchell sticks by Kat Slater’s side after she returns home from hospital next week in EastEnders.
Kat – who is played by actress Jessie Wallace in the BBC One soap – was hit by Whitney’s car as she tried to get revenge against the Mitchells for the death of her fiance Kush Kazemi.
Next week’s episodes of EastEnders will see Kat return home from hospital with Phil by her side.
But when he’s confronted with the usual Slater chaos, he bolts and upsets Kat.
Jean warns Kat about the Mitchells when she realises Phil has already done a runner but, when he turns up later, Kat is pleased he’s proven Jean wrong.
Later in the week, Kat turns up at Phil’s with Tommy, Bernt and Ernie in tow.
Phil directs the boys to Ben’s games console and orders Kat to rest.
Following the hit and run, viewers know that Gray covered for Whitney and told the police a couple of kids must have stolen his car.
Meanwhile, Kat woke up in hospital and lied about not remembering what happened, before flashbacks showed that she did know exactly who had hit her.
Will Kat tell Phil she knows Whitney hit her?
If so, will he head out for revenge?
