Who is Isaac in EastEnders?
Fans have been left baffled as Sheree has gone to great lengths over the last few months to keep Isaacs existence secret from Patrick in EastEnders.
When Isaac showed up unannounced over the festive period, Sheree even pretended that she was having an affair and walked out for a while to stop the truth coming out.
But this week, viewers watched Patrick pin down his wife over his suspicions about her son Isaac.
He grew increasingly concerned last week after learning Isaacs age, realising that he could be his son.
He then confronted Sheree about their brief relationship back in the 1980s, which happened years before they got married in 2019.
Patrick demanded to know if Isaac was his son and Sheree was forced to admit the truth, before insisting that Isaac must never know.
Patrick pleaded with her: “I lost one son, Sheree. Please don’t let me go through my life not knowing another. Look me in the eye and tell me he is not mine.”
After beating around the bush, Sheree eventually told Patrick: “When Isaac was born, I had to make sure he was safe, accepted.
“Isaac is your son, Pat, but he can never know!”
