Sharon (played by Letitia Dean) has made it clear to Keanu (Danny Walters) she no longer wanted to carry on their affair in EastEnders, telling him she didn’t love him when the young man poured his heart out to her.
The decision came after Sharon returned to the BBC soap at the beginning of this week only to discover Keanu had been enjoying a romance with her step-daughter Louise Mitchell (Tilly Keeper), although she did issue concerns over Keanu’s connection to the Mitchell family.
However, Keanu felt he had to move on after Sharon told him he should find someone else in a voicemail he heard over the Christmas period.
Although the blonde has explicitly tried to call things a day, Keanu was more adamant than ever during last night’s instalment, but is this hinting towards the mechanic becoming obsessed with the blonde?
Keanu tried to win Sharon back by tracking her down in the café, telling her he wanted to be with her, but the blonde knocked him back saying there was no longer anything between them.
Reluctant to give up, Keanu then arranged a romantic picnic for the pair, leaving an orchid on Sharon’s doorstep to entice her to the date.
However, Sharon looked woeful as she picked up the exotic flower, seemingly upset Keanu still wasn’t getting the message.
Stood at the front door, Louise then noticed Sharon with the flower, believing she was the rightful recipient as she had been dating Keanu.
Louise couldn’t have been further from the truth however, and when she turned up instead of Sharon, Keanu was less than impressed.
Deciding he could no longer keep toying Louise along, Keanu called things a day before the heartbroken teenager issued a warning to the mechanic, telling him: “You wait until my dad finds out.”
Worried Phil (Steve McFadden) was going to kill him, Keanu went running to his forbidden lover and although she seemed concerned, Sharon still tried to reject his advances.
Phil then interrupted to two and issued a few choice words to the mechanic, telling him: “Do you have a death wish or something? You go near Louise or any of my family again, I’ll kill you.”
With his cards marked, Keanu will have to tread carefully if he wants to see Sharon again but could he resort to following her in the shadows?
What will it take for Keanu to get the message?
Sharon could still be pining over her young lover however, but desperately trying to resist his temptations in fear he will be killed by her husband. Is Sharon trying to protect Keanu by being so cold?
