Phil Mitchell Shooting Suspect Sent To Coventry

Coventry students will be able to launch their own investigation into the Eastenders 'Who Shot Phil Mitchell' storyline when one of the main suspects appears in the city.

Craig FairbrassDespite keeping a low profile in the BBC soap, Dan Sullivan, alias actor Craig Fairbrass, will visit the Ikon Superclub on Wednesday 14 March.

Sullivan's return to Eastenders coincided with the shooting of Phil Mitchell, watched by record audiences, and the actor is now at the centre of the show's biggest cliffhanger.

SkyDome manager Ian Knight is in no doubt about what the question on everybody's lips will be.

He said:

"The current Eastenders storyline is going to keep everybody in suspense for around a month so we are hoping that Dan will give Coventry clubbers a clue as to who is the guilty party.

"He is certainly the character that everybody loves to hate and he has to be prime suspect.

"I am sure that he will be asked whether he was the gunman several times on the night.

"It is fantastic that he is visiting Coventry at a time when he will be one of the most watched TV stars in the country.

"Several of the Eastenders cast have been to SkyDome since it opened and apparently the complex is getting quite a reputation on the set as a place for an enjoyable night out - that is great for the city.

"I know a lot of venues across the country were hoping to get Craig Fairbrass to appear during this storyline so we are delighted that he has chosen Coventry."

Fairbrass, who starred alongside Sylvester Stallone in the film Cliffhanger, will host a question and answer session, chat to clubbers, sign autographs and pose for photos.

Knight said:

"Our student nights are already hugely popular but we are expecting this to be the biggest yet."
