EASTENDERS viewers are set to see Phil Mitchell finally tell Kat Slater the truth about his forthcoming prison sentence.
Hardman Phil is facing the rest of his life behind bars and has found it hard to tell Kat that he’s going inside for longer than she expects.
Phil finally admits that he’s actually looking at life in prison leaving Kat floored – but she vows to stand by him.
And not wanting to put her in harm’s way, Phil fails to give her the full picture and leaves out the informant deal offered by DCI Keeble.
In episodes aired earlier this month, Phil was given the option of avoiding a life sentence in prison for Vincent Hubbard’s murder.

However they have also offered him a way out.
DCI Keeble made him the offer – insisting her bosses want him to use his retirement from crime in a productive way.
