New Mitchell set for Square
09:30 10 May 2006
Grant and Phil Mitchell are set for a shock when they discover they have a half-brother, in a gripping new 'EastEnders' storyline.
The two hardmen will be stunned when their unknown sibling comes out of the wood work looking to trace his roots.
It is soon revealed that the new addition to the Mitchell clan is the product of a secret affair Eric Mitchell, the father of Grant and Phil, had behind wife Peggy's back.
However, rather than be a happy family reunion, Phil, played by actor Steve McFadden, and his long lost sibling will soon be at loggerheads with each other.
Grant will not be in Albert Square to meet his brother as actor Ross Kemp who plays the tough guy is taking a break from the soap.
A show insider told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "He is a respectable highly intelligent university graduate who has decided to trace his roots.
"Phil and his new brother will take an instant dislike to each other."
