Keanu Taylor (played by Danny Walters) and Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean) have managed to keep their affair under wraps so far but the actress who plays Keanu’s mum, Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley) has hinted at explosive scenes when the truth finally comes out.
Sharon and Keanu were embroiled in a secret romance last year and a recent turn of events involving Keanu’s girlfriend Louise Mitchell (Tilly Keeper) has caused sparks between the couple once again.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Lorraine hinted at a dramatic climax to the former lovers’ storyline when Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) uncovers the affair.
When asked whether she would like to be involved in the explosive scenes, she confessed: “Oh, yeah, if and when it happens, yeah.”
“It’s obviously got to come out, hasn’t it? But yeah, there would be some brilliant scenes there.
“It’s always a pleasure working with Steve McFadden, so that would be explosive. It [would] be a bombshell explosion.”
Karen has known about the affair for some time after discovering the truth and warning Sharon that her son better not get hurt.
The worried mum feared for the safety of Keanu because of Phil’s violent reputation and told Sharon to make sure things were over between the pair.
If Karen finds out Phil knows the truth she may storm over to confront Phil herself before he has chance to hurt Keanu.
Could Karen end up in the cross fire as Phil attempts to take revenge on the young mechanic?
She pushed the young mechanic away and told him she was having an abortion before changing her mind but Keanu had already found sought confront in the arms of Sharon.
Elsewhere in the soap, Karen Taylor was devastated when Mitch Baker (Roger Griffiths) turned his back on her.
Dinah Wilson (Anjela Lauen Smith) tragically decided to take her own life last week, and had told Karen of her wish before she died.
But Karen wrongly believed she had persuaded Dinah against the idea.
When Mitch found out the truth, he told Karen he was walking away from her, leaving her heartbroken.
