    EastEnders dropped a huge bombshell as Sharon Watts discovered that Keanu Taylor is not the biological father of Albie.

    During Wednesday's (November 15) instalment of the BBC soap, Sharon (Letitia Dean) was still worried after she received a call from the hospital requesting an urgent appointment to discuss Albie's test results. Sharon decided to start the appointment with the doctor when Keanu (Danny Walters) was late to the hospital.

    She was told that Albie has a rare genetic disease called Alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency (AATD), meaning he could have a predisposition to liver and lung disease later in life. Despite the risk, the doctor reassured Sharon that it wasn't anything serious, noting that many people who suffer with AATD don't even know they have it.

    He went on to explain that for a child to have AATD, both parents must be carriers of the gene. Assuming they both carry the gene, Sharon agreed that she and Keanu would both do the test to gain more information.

    When the results came back, the doctor confirmed that Sharon carries the gene, however, Keanu does not. As Keanu missed the earlier appointment, he was blissfully unaware of what the doctor was implying.

    Suggesting Keanu leave the room, Sharon continued the conversation with the doctor. Alone, Sharon's world was turned upside down as the doctor confirmed there is no way Keanu can be Albie's biological father.

    When asked if there was anyone else who was around at the time Sharon fell pregnant, she gazed out the window. Outside stood with Keanu and Albie was Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden), with Sharon coming to the realisation that her ex is most likely Albie's real father.

    Fans were shocked by the bombshell and raced to social media to share their thoughts. "Don’t tell me that Phil is the father…i did not see that coming!" said one fan.
