EastEnders viewers have decided the latest romantic coupling on the BBC soap is going to be between Phil Mitchell (played by Steve McFadden) and Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace).
The Arches mechanic and mouthy barmaid-turned-cleaner couldn’t be more different, and have always been at loggerheads since they first met in Walford.
Phil has had an on-off but very much drama-filled love story with Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean), while Kat and Alfie Moon (Shane Richie) quickly became everyone’s favourites couple on the soap.
But things change rapidly on the Square, and now both single, the pair could be set for a romp between the sheets as producers tease an “unexpected” romance to come.
Phil and Kat had a moment months ago, and for the first time it wasn’t all doom and gloom for the duo.
During an attempt to hatch a heist plan, Kat became Phil’s cleaner and there was some sexual tension between them lingering in the air.
While the flirtatious chemistry didn’t amount to anything at the time, fans are convinced the potential couple are going to have another chance at a romance.
The latest spoilers tease Phil will move on from his marriage to Sharon with an “unexpected” partner.
Producers could choose to bring Kat back into the mix, but how well viewers respond to the pairing remains to be seen.
Next week, Sharon and Phil appear to have a reunion on the soap, but Kat could swoop in and prove to Phil what a mistake he’d be making.
Taking to Twitter to discuss the possibilities, one fan said: “I'm looking forward to it, I think they'll be great together and Sharon losing out to the woman currently cleaning her bogs will be the icing on the cake!
“I can't actually see it at the moment, but their scenes together were the most I enjoyed either character last year,” another posted.

"There's definitely chemistry there, even if it seems more antagonistic at the moment.”
While a third wrote: “I’m looking forward to it. Two great actors and great characters, this could pump new life into them both.”
“Kat would be a great Mitchell matriarch. Not only would there be great drama, but think of the actual comedy gold that could ensue,” another added.
EastEnders continues Monday at 8pm on BBC One.
