Phil and Grant to free Sam
09:30 26 October 2005
'EastEnders' fans are set to see Mitchell brothers Phil and Grant trying to free their sister from jail.
Sam has been locked up for Dirty Den's murder but the pair want young Stacey Slater - who is Chrissie Watt's alibi for the killing - to change their story so their sister is let off and freed.
When they go to the allotment to confront Stacey she knees Phil - played by Steve McFadden - to get away, but is caught by hard man Grant, played by Ross Kemp, who lifts her and carries her off so they can talk.
Almost four million people tuned in to see Phil and Grant return to Albert Square during Monday night's show (24.10.05) - and TV bosses hope the long-awaited comeback is the start of an upward turn for the soap.
A show insider is quoted in Britain's Daily Star newspaper as saying: "There is still a huge appetite for the Mitchell boys."
