EASTENDERS fans think that Phil Mitchell and Linda Carter will have an affair as they bond over alcoholism.
Linda was left horrified when she attended a new help group and bumped into her neighbour – begging him to attend a different one.
Earlier this week, Phil offered Linda's husband Mick an ultimatum – he will attend a different meeting if the Carters sell him the Queen Vic.
Linda was left horrified by the suggestion, and she and Phil had a fiery confrontation – but some viewers are convinced they saw sparks fly between the pair.
Writing on a soap forum, one fan shared: "Forget Sharongate and Sheanu, it's all about #Philinda – wait til that affair kicks off."
Another responded: "I actually thought they were going to kiss last night with that camera shot of them looking at each other in the kitchen almost in darkness!"
A third added: "I called an affair between these two a few weeks ago, it would be an explosive one that's for sure!!!"
An affair between the two characters would certainly be a recipe for drama, with Phil's estranged wife Linda's best friend Sharon.
He has also enjoyed an on/ off romance with Linda's mother-in-law Shirley over the years.
She and Mick have also been battling to save their marriage during her alcohol battle, with the pair coming close to splitting for good several times.
Mick decided to sell the Vic so that they could focus on Linda's recovery and healing their romance.
But will it all end up being in vain and Mick will be left with no wife and no pub?
