EastEnders' Shirley Carter is warned she could be jailed for intimidating Ben Mitchell after she lays into him for not withdrawing his false claims against dad Phil Mitchell
EastEnders' Shirley Carter is warned she could be jailed for intimidating Ben Mitchell.
The furious cafe manager (Linda Henry) lays into boyfriend Phil Mitchell's son after he refuses to withdraw his allegation that his dad plotted to kill his psychopathic wife Stella, but is quickly told to back off Ben (Joshua Pascoe) by police.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "When DCI Marsden taunts Shirley about what her life will be like without Phil, Shirley decides that she has to confront Ben.
"When Ben storms out of the house Shirley finds Marsden waiting and she warns Shirley that if she tries to intimidate a witness again she'll be joining Phil in a cell."
Shirley will soon have another reason to despise Ben after it was recently revealed he will murder Heather Trott in a shock storyline.
However, despite their recent troubles, Phil (Steve McFadden) steps in to destroy the evidence of the cold-blooded killing.
The finger of suspicion falls on a number of Walford residents - and Shirley even thinks Phil has been involved in some way.
A source said recently: "Heather's exit stuns the Square. Everyone is looking over their shoulder wondering who is responsible."Heather's life will go through various twists and turns over the next couple of months which will place numerous people in the frame."
