EastEnders fans have been left disappointed following an update on Grant Mitchell courtesy of sister Sam (Kim Medcalf), who confirmed that her brother would not be attending Aunt Sal’s funeral.

The popular character, played by Ross Kemp, has enjoyed a number of stints in the long-running soap, with his last coming in 2016.

Viewers have been hoping to see the character back on screen, with Sal’s send-off seemingly like a perfect opportunity for him to stage a comeback but it’s been confirmed that he won’t be in attendance.

Thursday’s (January 13) edition of the BBC One soap saw everyone discussing Sal’s funeral arrangements following news of her death.

Sam received a phone call from Sal’s husband Harold and confirmed to him that Grant wouldn’t be attending the service.

The funeral takes place on Monday (January 15), with the Mitchells gathering to pay their respects.

Harold shows up and gets reacquainted with everyone before delivering a powerful and touching eulogy which moves even Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) to tears.

In typical EastEnders fashion, however, there’s conflict aplenty, with Stevie Mitchell, Billy’s father, showing up.

Sam, meanwhile, is stunned when Harold reveals that Sal left her, Grant and Phil £100,000, which she knew nothing about.

The nightclub owner swiftly confronts Phil about the matter but Phil refuses to hand over her share of the cash, much to Sam’s dismay.

Sam, however, soon has a plan after she finds out from Alfie that Phil slept with Emma Harding (Patsy Kensit) prior to his wedding with Kat.

Without wasting a moment, she proceeds to use this information as leverage to get what she wants – and shocking scenes ensue.

EastEnders airs Mondays to Thursdays at 7:30pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
