  EastEnders told off for Phil and Jamie scrap
Updated 31 January 2003, 09.58
Phil, Jamie and Sonia argue
EastEnders has been told off by TV officials for showing a scene which was far too violent and realistic for early evening TV.

Thirty-one viewers complained about it to the Broadcasting Standards Commission, which keeps an eye on what TV programmes show.

The October 2002 episode showed Phil Mitchell badly beat up his nephew Jamie, played by Jack Ryder.

Jamie was left battered after he tried to defend his girlfriend Sonia.

Phil was about to attack her because she wouldn't tell him where his girlfriend, Lisa, had gone with his daughter.

The Commission agreed that even though the scene was quite short, it was still much too upsetting and far too violent for viewers who'd be watching at that time of night.
