EastEnders’ Phil Mitchell is comedy gold as he delivers Kim Fox’s baby

EastEnders‘ Phil Mitchell became an unlikely hero in the Christmas Eve episode when he helped deliver Kim Fox’s baby!

The very unlikely turn of events came about when Phil (Steve McFadden) decided to show a little festive spirit and help Kim (Tameka Empson) stock the shelves at the Minute Mart.

Unfortunately, the two accidentally got locked into the convenience store shortly before Kim’s water broke, forcing Phil to take control of the situation and actually deliver the baby.

At the same time, Denise (Diane Parish) started getting worried about why her sister hadn’t turned up at the Christmas carol concert. Her panic only got worse when she spotted an ambulance rushing to the Minute Mart.

Meanwhile, Phil was on the phone with an emergency dispatcher who informed he’d need to get down near “the business end”.

“I know what it means, he ain’t doin’ it,” Kim insisted, with Phil agreeing: “Funny enough, it ain’t on my To Do List either!”

As Kim pushed, Phil gave us, well, this:

When Denise finally arrived at the convenience store, she breathed a sigh of relief to see that Kim had delivered a healthy baby thanks to help from Phil!

“It’s a boy,” Phil either laughed or cried. (It was hard to tell, really!)

Aside from a baby, a comedy double act was born:

Well I never thought I’d see the day that Phil would be Delivering Kim’s baby while being locked up in in a store room together 🤣 #eastenders

imagine phil mitchell being the first face you see #EastEnders

Phil Mitchell and Kim Fox are the comedy double act I didn’t know I wanted. #EastEnders

Kim and Phil: the dynamic duo we didn’t know we needed. #EastEnders

@bbceastenders #EastEnders Kim is so funny and Phil helping to deliver her baby was good. His faces were hilarious😂🤣.

Watching Eastenders for the first time this year and all I’m seeing is Phil being a midwife in the back of the shop with Kim 😂😂😂😂 gotta love the Christmas eps of #EastEnders

I don’t need Christmas Day. Phil Mitchell delivering Kim’s baby is the best gift on earth. #Eastenders

Prior to the Christmas Eve episode airing on Monday night, Tameka Empson had made light of Kim having to rely on Phil of all people to get her through the delivery process.

“There’s no way that Kim would have shortlisted Phil Mitchell of all people to be her birthing partner,” she joked. “But, when you’re in that position you just take who’s around and he just happened to be there.

“I don’t think it will ever be the same between them again! It’s already slightly awkward that he has a child with Kim’s sister Denise, and now all of this! It’s going to be interesting to say the very least, but who knows? Maybe a lovely friendship will flourish from this.”

EastEnders continues with a shocking Christmas Day episode at 9.15pm on BBC One.
