EastEnders' villain Danny Hardcastle to seduce Kathy Beale says new fan theory

EASTENDERS fans think villain Danny Hardcastle is going to seduce Kathy Beale – to get revenge on her son Ben and ex Phil Mitchell.

The Sun Online exclusively revealed earlier this month how Danny will be returning to Walford later this year.

And this week Gillian Taylforth told how Kathy has been spending lockdown internet dating and is getting a new love interest.

Fans have connected the two stories for an intriguing new theory that suggests Kathy is going to get a new bald-headed lover to add to the list.

Writing on a fan forum, one said: "Putting Danny together with Kathy for example could be great & make me a million times more invested in the character."

A second said: "Danny, putting him with Kathy would be great! What a way to wind up Phil and Ben by dating their ex wife/mother!"


Another added: "That would be unbelievable drama!"

Actor Paul, 59, has already returned to set to film socially distant scenes – and he will be seen on screen when the soap is back on TV in September. 

A show source tells The Sun Online: “Phil and Ben need to watch out as when Danny returns, he’s not going to be happy with them. 

“Phil thought he’d never see Danny again after the last dust up – but he’s back and he’s angry. 

“The revenge storyline will play out over the winter – with things getting increasingly tense between Phil and Danny.”

Ex Brookside and The Bill star Paul has appeared on the show twice before – once in 2019, and again in May this year, when Danny sent Midge to kidnap Phil’s daughter Louise and sell her into the sex trade. 

After rescuing Louise, furious Ben attacked Danny – and dad Phil banished him from the Square.
