Spoilers: Phil begs Denise to get custody of Raymond in shock EastEnders twist

Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) begged Denise Fox (Diane Parish) to go for custody of Raymond Dawkins in EastEnders tonight (October 22), as he realised her had no other option if he is to save his son.

Phil was determined to track down Ellie Nixon (Mica Paris) at any cost after she absconded with Raymond, and he ultimately did so.

However, in the process of his search, he discovered that the car accident which killed Raymond’s adopted parents was a retaliation attack against Ellie, as she’s a hardened criminal!

Ellie offered to hand Raymond over to Phil in exchange for £150,000, but a word from Ben (Max Bowden) made the hard-man realise he needs to do things by the book.

However, his attempt to get custody of Raymond hit a brick wall early on, as Ritchie Scott (Sian Webber) confirmed that no court would award Phil custody given his criminal record.

Therefore, he was forced to come up with a plan, and he ultimately did just that.

As the episode reached its end, the hard-man paid Denise a visit, and begged her to go for custody of Raymond — revealing that her son is simply not safe with Ellie.

Denise was horrified to learn of Ellie’s true identity, but will she agree to do as Phil has asked?
