EastEnders' Sharon Rickman to fight for life
'EastEnders' favourite Sharon Rickman will be left fighting for her life following a brutal attack next month, but could her attack be related to Lucy Beale's murder?
EastEnders' Sharon Rickman will be left fighting for her life after a brutal attack.
The soap favourite, played by Letitia Dean, will end up in intensive care next month when she is targeted by a mystery mugger as she closes up her bar, The Albert.
Barman Johnny Carter (Sam Strike), who is upstairs when the attack happens, will rush to her aid and call an ambulance, but it could be too late for Sharon.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Sharon is attacked while she locks up. She puts up a fight but her assailant fells her and she's left fighting for her life.
"It all happens very quickly and she has no idea who her attacker is or why it happens. It will be touch-and-go as the surgeons battle to save her.
"There are a lot of twists and turns to come but boyfriend Phil (Steve McFadden) is at Sharon's bedside praying she pulls through."
The attack on Sharon follows the tragic murder of youngster Lucy Beale in April, which leads to fears there could be a serial attacker on the loose in Walford.
The insider added: "There are a lot of twists to come. Whether Sharon's attack is related to Lucy's remains to be seen."
