Sharon Mitchell (played by Letitia Dean) tragically gave birth to her second son while her eldest, Dennis Rickman (Bleu Landau), died and the grieving mother failed to bond with her new baby. After weeks of struggling, Sharon gave Kayden to his grandmother, Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley) but when the EastEnders stalwart returns to the Square she may have had a change of heart.
In recent BBC scenes, Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) was devastated when Sharon announced she would be going to Australia to clear her head.
The dodgy dealer wanted to give their marriage another try and revealed his plans to buy the Queen Vic.
However, Sharon explained how much her son’s death had affected her and he couldn’t be replaced with a big gesture.
Sharon has gone Down Under to stay with Michelle Fowler (Jenna Russell) and her daughter Vicki Fowler (Scarlett Alice Johnson).

Michelle knows only too well what’s like to be estranged from your child and could persuade Sharon she’s making a mistake with Kayden.
It’s no secret that Michelle isn’t a fan of Phil and Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) revealed that he and Michelle conspired to stop Sharon and Phil’s wedding in 2014 before changing their minds.
Michelle last left the Square in 2018 as she vowed to reconnect with her children before travelling the world.
EastEnders fans have since learned she is living with Vicki in Australia but her relationship with Mark Fowler Jr (Ned Porteous) is strained.
