    Michelle Fowler told Sharon Watts she slept with a 17 year old!! I don't remember the original Michelle but online there is lots of outrage about the show turning Michelle into a paedophile. It seems it is EE's biggest character assassination ever. Should the new boss be axed for doing this?

    I thought this was pure genius. Could have been cheesy, taking the irony too far but totally loved the whole idea. Playing into Michelle's fling with Den seamlessly.

    I think there is a great chemistry between Letitia Dean and the new Michelle, think it all works really well. Loved Sharons throwaway comment "I tan easily" :)

    Well written and brilliantly executed. Loving the show right now! Loved the scenes with Dot's cat as well, expected her to fall over but wonderful she didn't and that the scene was just 'Dot'.

    I thought the age of consent was 16 in the UK.

    Not that I have any idea what's going on with the story.

    It took me ten minutes to realise this was Michelle. I don't watch it anymore :innocent:

    Would you like her to be hanged onscreen, maybe in the middle of the Square?

    Well did not mean literally James. I just cant see a way back for the character now. The show didn't try to redeem Bianca's husband Tony who was sleeping with Whitney did they? What did you think of the ep as someone who remembers Michelle 1?

    I liked the episode up to the point we found out Michelle is a paedo tho there was a bit too much moaning from Michelle about her flabby underarms. The paedo revelation means she cannot stay.

    I'm surprised Sharon is letting her near Denny.

    I'm not a fan of EastEnders but why did they not recast Susan Tully?

    And do what to redeem her exactly? they didn't redeem Dean Wicks for his sex crime or Tony King. Murderers are OK in soap now but not sex offenders.

    Jay is another one who should be out really.

    I don't think she needs to be redeemed.

    I like Jay.

    But both did something they shouldn't have with kids under the age of consent. In most people's books that is not okay. I can understand the Twitter outrage on this one.

    Michelle is a nonce.

    Hang 'em high. And then throw the key away. Filth on our streets. It's the children I fear for. And our children's children. God bless. Amen.

    But, more importantly, she's an interesting, complicated character (which Whitney's Tony, bless him, never was).
