EASTENDERS fans are in shock after the police blamed Keanu Taylor for the boat disaster – and NOT Phil Mitchell.
The mechanic and his older rival – who are played by actors Danny Walters and Steve McFadden in the BBC soap – were involved in a brutal fight on the boat when the gun went off and caused the boat to steer out of control into another vessel.
Dennis Mitchell was killed in the disaster, leaving his mum Sharon devastated.
And in Friday night’s episode an exhausted Sharon told Linda Carter how the police were hunting for Keanu and holding him responsible for it all.
She told Linda: “I don’t remember when I last slept. If I do close my eyes then all I can see is Denny on that boat and all that water.
“I just can’t get it out of my head. Linda I am so tired.
“The family liaison officer says the police are looking for Keanu but it’s Phil they should be after.”
Fans were already convinced Sharon would murder Phil for the loss of her son, and now they think he’ll get away with it all.
One wrote: "‘the police are looking for keanu, but it’s phil they should be after’ yes QUEEN! #EastEnders"
Another added: "Won’t half the cast of #EastEnders end [email protected] jail for manslaughter when the police work out the boat crash was because of a fight on board? Will Phil and Ben finally be sent down?"
Actor Danny Walters made his exit from the soap as Keanu last month and there are no plans for him to return.
Sharon made it crystal clear to him that she and their son never wanted to see him again after Dennis’ death.
Meanwhile Phil disappeared after the boat crash and was seen sobbing after Dennis was pulled from the water.
It is not known when he will return to Walford.
