Sharon Watts, played by Letitia Dean, might be heading for another love triangle with the Mitchell brothers in EastEnders.

Sharon has had her fair share of romantic entanglements since she first appeared on the soap in 1985, with a string of Walford men falling for her charms.

She was recently left heartbroken following the death of her fiance Keanu Taylor, portrayed by Danny Walters, who was killed by Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) after he tried to strangle Sharon upon discovering that her son, Albie, wasn't his.

However, it was Sharon's steamy affair back in 1994 that had viewers glued to their screens. Almost 30 million fans tuned in to watch the Queen Vic moment when Sharon Mitchell's affair with her brother-in-law Phil Mitchell, played by Steve McFadden, was revealed.

At the time, Sharon was married to Grant, played by Ross Kemp. He managed to obtain a taped recording of Sharon admitting to sleeping with his brother and tearing off his clothes, reports the Daily Star.

In an act of revenge, Grant showed up at the pub where Sharon was hosting Phil and Kathy's engagement party. To everyone's surprise, Grant replaced the music with Sharon's confession, leaving the patrons stunned.

Fast forward 30 years, and history could be about to repeat itself as Sharon may find herself in another love triangle involving the Mitchell brothers.

Just last month, Sharon and Phil shared a passionate kiss after a heartfelt conversation. The blonde beauty has since tried to downplay it, but it seems a new character is set to catch her eye in the soap.

Last week on the soap, a new Mitchell family made their debut: Billy's brother Teddy and his two children, Harry and Barney. This week, Teddy seems to have taken a shine to Sharon.

Spoilers suggest that Phil and Teddy upset Sharon by leaving the gym in a mess after a Mitchell drinking session. Later, Teddy attempts to make amends with Sharon by inviting her for a drink and turning on the charm.

Teddy and Sharon share a flirtatious drink, which raises eyebrows from Stevie, who isn't too thrilled about his son getting involved with Phil's ex. When Teddy tries to persuade Sharon to stay for another drink, she playfully turns him down and leaves.

Now, fans are speculating that Sharon will find herself in a love triangle with Teddy and Phil. On Twitter, one user wrote: "sharongate part 2 looms."

Another user chimed in, expressing their disapproval of the potential love triangle, writing: "Abysmal."

Meanwhile, on a Reddit thread, one person speculated: "I wonder if we'll have a 30th anniversary of Sharongate (1994) with Sharon, Teddy and Phil."

Another added: "You know, everyone (for months) talking about Sharon and Phil and Alfie and Kat getting back together...and I wasn't feeling it."

"The other week and when it was romantic, not sexual and they were talking about 30 years ago...I started rooting them for them, but now we're getting this? It's missing the mark for me personally and I'd rather they paired the guy with Denise, threw Honey under the bus, or had the triangle be between Harry, Penny and Teddy."
