Phil's son dilemma
09:30 04 May 2006
'EastEnders' hardman Phil Mitchell is left faced with a difficult decision after learning son Ben injured Little Mo's baby.
The tough guy, actor Steve McFadden, will be told by his son, who he has only recently been reunited with, that he hit the crying tot.
Ben will confess all just as the investigation into whether Little Mo, played by actress Kacey Ainsworth, hit Freddie spirals out of control.
A show source told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "It is Phil's biggest challenge to date, and one that could define the whole nature of his relationship with his son. Phil's first inclination, of course, is to keep quiet especially as the police are involved. But that may not be the right thing to do."
It is not yet known whether Phil will come clean over his son's actions and spare Mo further police questioning or decide to protect him.
The source added: "Phil knows he needs to do the right thing, so that Ben knows the difference between right and wrong, but whether he does is a different matter."
