Here's what Hetti had to say about the scene..."As soon as Max tells her she is shocked - and there's 101 things going round in her head. Who is going to find out? What is going to happen? But there are so many things going on in her head at this point that even though that's such a big shock and is such a big worry, it gets side-tracked because it's one thing on top of the other. Things are constantly happening."
You can watch the confrontation on BBC One from 7.30pm tonight.

At a press conference to launch the major Lucy Beale storyline kicking off this Friday, Executive Producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins was joined by key cast members to exclusively unveil his master plan for the next phase of the show - as well as to announce some exciting news about one character in particular.
“There are going to be a lot of twists and turns,” Dominic revealed. “We're going to use the story to find out a lot about every single character on The Square - and we find out a lot more about Lucy after she died.
“It’s all based on truth and reality and grief,” he added. “ When we first talked about the story, we talked about Lucy dying, the body being found on the common and the story being about grief at first… and slowly, slowly getting closer until the focus suddenly comes to The Square.

“I think we’re doing it differently,” Dominic admitted...

When Sharon can't find the words to help her old friend, Phil steps in and offers him comfort and a hug. Good man.
"Working with Steve is brilliant," revealed Adam Woodyatt. "This brings a new dimension to Ian and Phil. I don’t think they’re going to be bosom buddies, but there’s a bit of understanding between the pair of them."
"Grief changes people and changes people's relationships," added Executive Producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins. "One of the most powerful things is how it's going to change Ian and Phil's relationship, because Ian and Phil are the biggest enemies in the world and Phil Mitchell hugs Ian Beale, a crying Ian Beale, and starts to cry himself."
You can see this scene on Friday 25th April.
