In forthcoming EastEnders episodes, Sam Mitchell (Kim Medcalf) will suffer humiliation at the hands of her elder brother Phil (Steve McFadden).
Sam is contacted by Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold) who requests permission to use Peggy’s for a charity fundraiser.
Lola is devoted to raising as much money as she can for organisations that support brain tumour research in order to assist others in her situation after receiving the devastating news that she had an inoperable brain tumour last year.
She is shocked when Sam declines, however, and lashes out as a result.
Phil quickly steps in and tells Lola she can take Peggy’s for nothing if she needs it.
Since that Lola is the mother of his granddaughter Lexi Pearce (Isabella Brown), Phil naturally views her as a member of the family and feels entitled to Mitchell family favours.
After being so blatantly undercut by her brother, Sam is left feeling dumb, while Lola is moved by his compassion.
After Sam actively helped mobster Jonah Tyler (Mark Mooney) in his quest to topple the Mitchell business, things between the brothers have been heated.
Sam’s situation worsened when it was discovered that her lover in Portugal was Phil’s ardent foe Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters).
Can they ever really reconcile, or will their rivalry go all the way to the end?
