EASTENDERS fans went wild on Twitter last night after barmaid Tracey admitted having a one night stand with Phil Mitchell.
The Queen Vic stalwart, played by Jane Slaughter, confessed her “night of passion” with the Walford hardnut during the Thames boast party for the soap’s 35th anniversary.
She skipped across the dance with Big Mo, who exclaimed: “You and Phil Mitchell?!”
Tracey replied: “It was years ago. It was just one night. Though saying one night would be a generous description!”
Viewers took to Twitter in stitches after spotting the blink-and-you-miss-it moment.
One tweeted: “Tracey you dark horse”
Tracey stunned viewers with her revelation about Phil last night
Another said: “In all this drama, it seems everyone missed one crucial piece of information. TRACY HAD SEX WITH PHIL”
One more said: “The biggest revelation from this Eastenders episode is that Tracy shagged Phil # #”
And one more typed: “TRACY AND PHIL MITCHELL HAVE BUMPED UGLIES !!!!!!”
The scene was a bit of light relief for fans, who have said they had been put off the soap recently after growing sickened by the number of grisly and violent scenes.
Last month, the BBC One soap received a whopping 181 complaints after Phil Mitchell was shown torturing Jack Branning.
There have been further scenes of torture too, with Keanu tying up Callum after kidnapping him – and making Ben Mitchell listen to the whole thing.
And on Friday Whitney Dean was seen brutally murdering Leo King in self defence, after he had been constantly harassing her in a bid to avenge his paedophile father Tony.
With the 35th anniversary of the soap fast approaching, the drama is mounting, but not all viewers are enjoying it.
Writing on an EastEnders forum, one fan said: “There seems to be far more violence in EastEnders these days, and in almost every storyline.
“On Friday we had the Bobby storyline with a brick through the window, the Whitney storyline which has involved a lot of violence [and the] kidnapping of Callum.
“In recent times also domestic violence, rape and continuous Mitchell storylines including kidnap of louise, kidnap and proposed murder of Keanu etc.”
The viewer added: “I’m not particularly against any of these stories individually but I feel that it is a bit too much and a bit of a turn off.”
Agreeing with the poster, another added: “I got a bit tired of seeing bruised faces and broken bones in EastEnders ( especially on cutie Ben Mitchell) I don’t know about other soaps but bleeding noses and black eyes are not my idea of family TV entertainment at diner time.”
