However, Suzy misunderstood who Phil was, thinking he was a hard-man sent by her ex-partner, and scenes saw the beautician knock Phil out.
When Phil finally came around and Suzy explained her situation, he offered to take her back to the Square, where she met up with Max.
It wasn’t long before word got out about her comeback and Suzy ended up saying with step-mother Dot Branning (June Brown) and gets a job looking after her sister-in-law Tanya Branning’s (Jo Joyner) salon while she was away.
Meanwhile, sparks are flying between Suzy and Phil and the pair decide to take the next step and move in together, but fans will remember Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) taking an immediate dislike to her.
In true Phil Mitchell style, the storyline saw him cheat on Suzy with Shirley and in a bid to claw him back, she claims she is pregnant with his baby and bribes him so she can pay of her ex.
