EastEnders shares first look at Teddy and Phil fight after family bombshell


The soap has released images from the EastEnders episode premiering on top streaming service the BBC iPlayer on Thursday (June 27) and airing on BBC One on Friday (June 28).

In these photos, The Football Factory’s Roland Manookian continues his debut week as Teddy Mitchell, the long-lost brother of Billy Mitchell and son of Stevie Mitchell.

Teddy has arrived in Walford with his two sons, Harry and Barney, intent on finding out who has put his father Stevie in the hospital.teddy and phil mitchell in eastenders

His search for answers leads to a huge confrontation with Phil Mitchell, as the two hard men face off for the first time in Albert Square.


Viewers know that it was Will Mitchell who injured his grandfather, though Stevie has stopped short of telling Teddy the truth.

However, the elder Mitchell did have to come clean to Billy about having a brother he’d never known. Meanwhile, Teddy has wasted no time pursuing a romantic spark with Sharon Watts.

Teddy’s sons have also found potential love interests in Walford, as older boy Harry has already hooked up with Penny Branning while younger son Barney has hit it off with Avani Nandra-Hart.

Roland Manookian’s casting as the newest member of the Mitchell clan was announced earlier this month, with the actor promising Teddy will get up to “plenty of mischief”.


“I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that Teddy is going to cause loads of trouble which I’m very much looking forward to,” he teased.
