And Sharon Mitchell revealed all about her baby daddy

Louise Mitchell gives birth

It's the EastEnders love triangle that has kept the nation on the edge of their sofa's (cuppa in hand of course), and last night the conclusion of the Keanu Taylor, Louise Mitchell and Sharon Mitchell saga edged slightly closer.

Louise finally gave birth to her and Keanu's first child, while her step-mum Sharon, who is having an affair with Keanu and is PREGNANT with his child, also revealed to Lisa Fowler that Phil Mitchell was not her unborn child's father.

Wow. There was a lot to digest.

Yet aside from the drama, fans of the soap opera were left laughing until their stomach's hurt and have praised the comedic script writing, especially the one-liners from Louise as she gave birth.

In one scene which saw Louise trying to deal with the pain as a result of her contractions, as well as cope with her worried dad Phil, Phil exclaimed, "Ben's on his way!"

The week begins with Phil – who is convinced Sharon and Jack are having an affair – planning to get revenge. While Ben tries to convince his dad otherwise it quickly becomes clear that Phil isn't listening…

Louise then hilariously replied, "How's Ben doing to help, dad? Last time he saw a woman's bits you probably had a fringe."

This was in reference to Ben being an openly gay man on Albert Square.

Viewers of the show were quick to comment on EastEnders' Instagram post to tell the BBC how the comedy lines added light relief after previous episodes.

One user wrote, "Best line of the day", while another commented, "Laughed way too loud at this😂😂."

A third said, "SCREAMING" and a fourth added, "That made me laugh."

Louise's on-screen birth comes after actress Tilly Keeper, who plays the iconic role, revealed she had decided to leave the soap after three years.

She told Digital Spy, “I have loved playing Louise Mitchell over these past few years, and I feel honoured to have been part of such an iconic show.

“Working with our incredible cast and crew has been a joy and I shall miss my EastEnders family greatly.”

EastEnders have promised Tilly will be playing a part in another major storyline before she leaves the soap, and as she has now confirmed she's leaving, we reckon it's going to be a corker.
