Phil's killer plan
09:30 22 December 2005
'EastEnders' fans will see Phil Mitchell try and kill rival Johnny Allen in a sensational new storyline.
The Albert Square hardman, played by Steve McFadden, will go to the hospital where the gangster is fighting for his life following a brutal attack by Dennis Rickman.
Phil is hoping to take revenge on Johnny, played by Billy Murray, for ordering his heavies to beat Dennis, played by Nigel Harman, in retaliation for his own beating.
However, when Phil enters the hospital room to finish Johnny off, he finds the tough guy bedridden and in a coma and starts to have second thoughts.
The garage owner will ultimately fail in his murder attempt, but it is not yet known whether he decides not to go through with his plan or is foiled in some other way.
Earlier this week, it was revealed Phil's brother Grant is set for an explosive showdown with Johnny on his return to Walford in the New Year - which will leave one of them dead.
