Yet a very suspicious Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) is determined to dig deeper as he confronts Sharon about her possible involvement in Keanu’s murder.

Once again, the Six’s big murder secret is in danger of being exposed – not long after Johnny (Charlie Suff) and local cop Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) discover that Keanu’s death led to the collapse of Denise Fox (Diane Parish).

As Phil heads to Number 43 to speak to Sharon to discuss whether he has access to their son Albie – who initially thought he was Keanu’s son – the conversation quickly turns to Dean Wicks (Matt Di Angelo), who was accused as the murderer.

Executive producer Chris Clenshaw said of the new Mitchells: “I am delighted to welcome Roland, Elijah and Lewis to EastEnders as we bring a new branch of the iconic Mitchell family to the Square.

The arrival of Teddy, Harry and Barney will be a huge shock for Billy and an unwanted surprise for Phil. With their arrival raising more questions than answers, it’s not long before the Mitchells find themselves at war, while Teddy and his sons find themselves at the heart of the drama.’

Speaking about taking part in EastEnders, Roland Manookian said: ‘I’ve been watching EastEnders all my life, so it’s great to be a part of it! Coming in as Mitchell means having big shoes to fill, but it’s a challenge I’m happy to take on.

‘It’s a privilege to have the opportunity to work with the likes of Perry Fenwick, Steve McFadden and the legendary Alan Ford – what great company to keep. Teddy is an enigmatic kind of guy with old-fashioned principles, but he is also attuned to modernity. It’s a wonderful part to sink my teeth into.’

Elijah Holloway added: “It’s a huge privilege to join a British institution like EastEnders, and playing Mitchell makes it even more exciting.

‘We have been welcomed so warmly and it is incredible to have to work in Walford every day. Harry has a lot of charm and swagger, but he also has a bit of a temper. He can’t resist the trouble and the ladies, so he’s ready to shake things up in typical Mitchell style!’

Speaking about playing Barney, Lewis Bridgemen said: ‘Joining the cast of EastEnders was very exciting and a great opportunity, made even better by working with an amazing cast and crew.

“Barney is an interesting character to explore due to his more introverted nature compared to the other members of his family, and I look forward to seeing how he grows and develops in Albert Square.”
