If they do begin an affair, Denise has a lot more to lose than Phil at this point as her relationship with Jack would surely crumble.
Actress Diane, 50, previously said: “I do know that some dark things from her past are going to resurface and there’s going to be some challenges there for Denise,” but could one secret be her feelings for Phil.
This would be the perfect time for her sister Kim Fox-Hubbard (Tameka Empson) and her daughter Chelsea Fox (Zaraah Abrahams) to return.
The pair will be making their comeback to the Square in the next few months, but how will they feel if they discover their loved one is now in a romance with Phil?
Denise’s ex-husband and serial killer Lucas Johnson (Don Gilet) is also returning to the soap, so he could go up against the gangster as he fights to get his ex-wife back.
