EastEnders Jessie Wallace shops in London after Kat Slater's shock fling with Phil Mitchell is revealed

EASTENDERS' Jessie Wallace picked up some essentials in North London today after her character Kat Slater's shock fling with Phil Mitchell in the soap.

The actress, 49, kept warm in a fluffy brown coat that wouldn't be out of place in Kat's wardrobe.

She covered her face with a mask and wore shades for the low-key outing.

Finishing her outfit with tracksuit bottoms and trainers, Jessie held a bag of groceries as she climbed into a car.

EastEnder Kat is currently the talk of soapland after she seduced Walford hardman Phil – who is played by actor Steve McFadden – while he was meant to be having a romantic reunion dinner with his ex-wife.

However, Sharon was left eating alone when Phil spotted her talking to a waiter and assumed she was flirting.

At that moment Kat turned up demanding he refund her for the car he had lent her – and things took a flirty turn.

Storming to the Arches, Sharon banged on the door screaming for Phil.

When he eventually opened up she said: "Just where Dennis used to hide, where Grant used to hide. Forgotten how to text, have you? Grubby little fingers can't manage it?"

Phil apologised saying: "I'm sorry. I got as far as the door. I know we said dinner but I just couldn't. 

“Keanu and Ian. I just weren't ready. Leaving you there like that I'm sorry you didn't deserve that.”

But he did promise to get her the Vic, saying: “I’ll make sure you get the Vic. That's your pub and no-one is going to take it away."

But when he went back inside his words for Sharon were seen to be hollow as a barely dressed Kat stepped out of one of the cars.

The pair were clearly mid romp – and fans were in shock.
