EastEnders: The Mitchell lads take a break from Albert Square as Steve McFadden, Jamie Borthwick, Max Bowden and Danny Walters holiday together

EastEnders’ Phil Mitchell has swapped his greasy overalls for a pair of swimming trunks with actor Steve McFadden taking a group trip to Mallorca with his co-stars.

Steve, who’s played Phil for nearly 20 years on the BBC soap, was joined by actors from the rest of the Mitchell clan, including Jay Brown (played by Jamie Borthwick), Ben Mitchell (played by Max Bowden) and Keanu Taylor (played by Danny Walters) to take a break from the stresses and strains of Albert Square and instead lap up the Mallorcan sun.

Jamie, who plays Jay Brown, shared several photos of the lads enjoying themselves on a yacht, while eating some paella and paddling on the sea with a rubber dinghy.

The actor shared the snaps on his Instagram account and said in the caption: “A great time with friends in the sun.”

The lads didn’t spend the entire trip on water, as another photo shows Jamie, Max and Danny straddling on bikes as they hold their fists up in true Mitchell style.

Max shared the group photo and said in the caption: “Peaky of a weekend with the boys and the Mac,” he ended the caption with a heart emoji and the hashtag, “#ohhappydays”.

Another snap shared by Jamie shows the lads catching up one evening with Lorraine Stanley, who plays Karen Taylor on the soap, and her beau Mark Perez.

In another group shot of the lads, the foursome smile at the camera while Steve is looking rather red-faced from the sun as he’s dressed in a white shirt and trunks.

The rest of the group are dressed in shorts and short-sleeved tops as they stand in front of a Spanish beach.

Each of the actors look far more relaxed than their EastEnders characters, who’ve faced some drama in recent episodes.

Steve’s character Phil, is currently in hospital in a coma after he suffered a head injury from being hit over the head with a wrench by Stacey Slater, who is played by Lacey Turner.

Stacey seems to have fled The Square and escaped the grasp of the police, as she and her husband Martin Fowler go on the run, meaning Stacey’s character will be away from the screen for some time after giving birth to her first child, Dusty.

Meanwhile, Ben Mitchell, who caught Stacey in the act, blames Keanu Taylor for attacking his dad.

Ben later tries to kill his dad in hospital by tampering with his breathing equipment before he’s caught by Jay Brown who desperately tries to stop him.
