Warning: spoiler alert! EastEnders hardman Phil (Steve McFadden) will show once again that compassion is not in his dictionary in an episode to air later this month.

Radio Times reports that the former crack addict discovers that girlfriend Sharon (Letitia Dean) is addicted to painkillers.

Phil makes the discovery when he finds Sharon unconscious on the sofa, with baby Lexi playing with the bottle of pills.

Having confirmed that the child has not taken any tablets, Phil begins interrogating Sharon, and while she claims she doesn't have a problem, Phil knows the lies.

Realising Lexi could be taken back into care, Phil throws Sharon out of his home.

The episode will air on BBC One and RTÉ One on Tuesday May 21st.
