Sharon comes to talk to Phil (Picture: BBC/Jack Barnes/Kieron McCarron)
When Sharon fell pregnant with Albie, she was married to Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden), but took a home DNA test in order to determine whether the baby was his, given that she had been having an affair with Keanu.
The results came back to show that Phil was not the baby’s father, and so Albie has been brought up with everyone believing that Keanu is his dad.
However, after recent blood test results showed that Albie had a genetic condition called Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AADT), which is passed down by a gene from both parents.
When Sharon and Keanu’s test results came back, they proved that while Sharon carried the gene, Keanu did not, meaning that he couldn’t be Albie’s biological father.
This led Sharon to the horrifying conclusion that Albie must be Phil’s – something that she was reluctant to accept given that the home DNA test had ruled him out.

As she reeled from the discovery, she attempted to tell Phil the truth, but their confrontation ended in an argument, which saw Sharon leave before she could tell him.
