We have recently seen Phil Mitchell collapse and get admitted to hospital following the diagnosis of cirrhosis of the liver. But in scenes set to air next week (25th Jan), we see Phil take another turn for the worse.
Since his diagnosis, Phil has failed to follow the necessary procedures and is continuing to abuse alcohol. His family have grown tired of the problems his drinking has caused and they didn’t seem too bothered when he informed them that he was ill.
However, next week, when he collapses during Billy and Honey’s engagement party, Phil’s loved ones are forced to face up to the severity of his condition.
After a drunk Phil interrupts Honey’s speech, he begins coughing up blood in some very dramatic scenes.
When the Mitchell’s gather at the hospital, they finally learn the extent of his illness. But will they give him the support he needs? Or have they finally had enough?
