Phil (Steve McFadden) is feeling lonelier than ever after losing his family, and he considers falling back into old habits by using alcohol to ease his pain.
When Sharon Rickman (Letitia Dean) pays a visit to Phil, however, she urges him to stay strong and focus on the pub - pointing out that it's in urgent need of some attention while Kat and Alfie are away.
Phil is reluctant to listen to Sharon, but eventually realises she is right and gets back behind the bar to take control.
Complaining that the place is like a morgue, Phil demands that it needs some loud music - and that the prices should be increased! It seems Phil is getting back to his old self with a project on his mind again, so will it be all change at The Vic?
