After they find Zack hiding out in their car, Kathy wonders how he knew Gavin but as Zack checks the coast is clear, he leaves but not before dropping a family bombshell.

Daily Star exclusively revealed last month that Gavin would be killed off and Sharon would chuck his ashes into a bin.

A show source said: “Gavin and Sharon had a turbulent relationship as father and daughter.

Gavin Sullivan is the biological father of Sharon

“His death is an emotional time for her. And when it comes to scattering his ashes, she isn’t interested in honouring his memory respectfully.”

Show stars Letitia Dean and Gillian Taylforth filmed the emotionally charged funeral scenes on location in Bushey, Herts.

During his time in Walford, Gavin killed his sister Margaret Midhurst (Jan Harvey) by throwing her off a balcony.

He tried to convince Sharon to lie to the police and say she fell.
