This article contains spoilers for the EastEnders episodes that aired on Monday, 30 March and Tuesday, 31 March.

EastEnders spotted a change in the show's closing credits earlier this week (30 March) following Sharon's decision to go back to her roots.

Monday's episode of the BBC soap saw Sharon (Letitia Dean) lay her teenage son Dennis Rickman to rest, after he lost his life in last month's boat crash.

Prior to the sad service, Sharon insisted that none of the Mitchells were welcome at the funeral, even though Ben and Lola had sent flowers.

However, when Kathy insisted that Sharon was a Mitchell herself, Sharon hit back, saying: "No I'm not. I am Sharon Watts and this is Dennis Rickman Junior's funeral. Phil killed my son. There will be no Mitchells there."

Sharon's announcement that she was reverting back to her maiden name was met with delight from fans on Twitter – especially when they noticed that she was now 'Sharon Watts' in the closing credits.

Sadly, Sharon's nightmare continued in Tuesday's episode when she came face-to-face with Phil for the first time in weeks.

Viewers knew that Sharon had been determined to speak to Phil for the last few weeks, having heard from Karen that he was responsible for the accident that cost her son his life.

A furious Sharon angrily launched herself at Phil, forcing a worried Ian and Kathy to intervene.

Refusing to give up, Phil later kicked Ian's door down as Sharon threw insults at him – before eventually handing himself into the police.

EastEnders airs on BBC One.
