EASTENDERS fans are convinced that Phil Mitchell has confirmed he’ll die after saying he’ll “pop his clogs”.
The hardman – played by Steven McFadden – set the wheels in motion to change his will earlier this week to include Keanu and cut out his son Ben.
Speaking to lawyer Ritchie Scott, he said: “I think half the Square think I’m going to pop my clogs before the baby comes.”
Those watching at home spotted his off-the-cuff comment and were convinced it means he will be killed off after a spoiler teased he will be left for dead in upcoming scenes.
Taking to Twitter to discuss it, one person wrote: “Is Phil gonna die soon? They’re heavily hinting! #EastEnders.”
A second added: “Phil Mitchell is going to die before Sharon gives birth #eastenders #Spoilers #EastEndersSolved.”
While a third wrote: “‘Half the Square’s put bets on me popping my clogs before the due date’ that’s foreshadowing baby!”
Last week The Sun revealed that Phil will be left “fighting for his life” when a row with an Albert Square resident spirals out of control.
Among the prime suspects are son Ben, played by Max Bowden, girlfriend Sharon (Letitia Dean) and Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters).
Walford mechanic Phil finds himself in danger when he goes in search of those responsible for the theft of his money-laundering proceeds.
Ben is also determined to fleece him while Sharon is desperate to keep her affair with Keanu a secret.

“With him oblivious to it all and looking forward to becoming a father and grandfather again, life couldn’t be looking more perfect.
“But secrets never stay secret for long in Albert Square.
“As everything comes to a head, certain truths will be revealed, but others remain hidden — for now.
An argument ensues and quickly escalates, forcing those involved to fight their corner, leaving Phil fighting for his life.”
