EastEnders has revealed a first look at the moment that Phil Mitchell and Mel Owen come face-to-face again.

When Phil (Steve McFadden) finally comes out of hiding later this month, he hears the news that Mel is back in Walford – and it doesn't take long before she pops up to speak with him in person.

Phil is taken by surprise when he returns home one afternoon to find Mel (Tamzin Outhwaite) waiting for him.

The Albert Square hardman is already concerned over the mysterious departure of his son Ben, but he quickly realises that Mel may have some crucial information to share.

Will Phil find out about Mel's secret connection to Aidan's ex-wife Ciara, and will he discover what's happened to Ben too?
