EastEnders viewers were thrilled as Phil Mitchell finally reverted back to his old ways, and got revenge on Luke Browning for attacking his son, Ben Mitchell.
In dramatic scenes, Phil looked on with satisfaction as men in black balaclavas grabbed Ben’s evil ex boyfriend and bundled him into a van on Tuesday night.
Earlier in the episode, Phil was seen asking cell-mate, Aidan Maguire, whether he would help him sort out his “little problem”, and Aidan replied that it was “all in hand.”

While Phil didn’t specifically name Luke as the “little problem”, fans were quick to praise Sharon Mitchell’s husband for his kidnap.
One fan tweeted: “So glad Phil has had that Luke beat up… Hate him #eastenders”
While another added: “I’m so glad Phil got his lads on Luke. Nobody touches his BOY and gets away with it #EastEnders”

A second added: “The old Phil is back! About time!! #EastEnders”
While a third joked: “The old Phil is back ! Get art of my town ! #Eastenders (sic)”

Phil’s revenge was triggered when Luke Browning violently attacked Ben and caused him to be admitted to hospital.
When Phil found out Luke was responsible, Kathy Beale attempted to calm him down, but it appears his anger got the better of him.
What will happen to Luke now? And what will Ben think when he finds out what his father has done?
