EastEnders airs proposal for Sharon and Keanu

EastEnders spoilers follow.

EastEnders has aired a shock marriage proposal for Sharon Watts and Keanu Taylor.

Earlier this year, Keanu popped the question to Sharon but she declined because she wanted time to get to know him better first. However, a traumatic week in the Square has seen Sharon change her mind.

Keanu was arrested for getting involved in drug dealing earlier this week and was later attacked by his new business associate Ravi Gulati.

Sharon was understandably traumatised to see her baby's father left for dead, so she grassed on Ravi to get him arrested for attempted murder.

In Thursday's episode (May 4), Nish called in his high-priced lawyer to intimidate Keanu, and under threat that his family could be in danger, Keanu recanted the charges against Ravi.

Sharon was initially irate when she went to Keanu's bedside, but he warmed her heart by explaining all he wanted was to keep their son safe.

"I know I said we needed time to get to know each other again. But actually, I know everything I need to know," she told him. "I thought I might lose you yesterday, and I can't lose this family."

She then stunned Keanu by asking: "Will you marry me?"

A smiling Keanu answered: "What do you think?"

Nish interrupted their emotional moment, quipping that "it looks like [they've] all got a lot to celebrate", before saying he was glad Keanu wasn't too badly hurt… "for now".

When Nish insisted it was a dangerous mistake for Sharon to go to police, she grabbed his face and insisted they could "play as dirty" as the Panesars if needed.

The revelation that Sharon intends to marry Keanu could tie into the Christmas flashforward story as viewers will remember that she was wearing a wedding dress in the mysterious scene.

EastEnders airs on Mondays - Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer.
