Sharon turned to old friend Phil to get Denny back, and the pair quickly became entwined in each other’s lives... even though Sharon was meant to be with Jack at that point! Denny and Jack had grown close, with Denny treating him as a Dad, and so when Jack and Sharon split up, Denny took it the hardest. Sharon quickly jumped back into Phil's arms, and Denny perked up at the thought of a new father figure in his life... but that was also short lived, as Sharon's drug habit got too bad to hide, and Phil threw her out.
It seemed all the drama with his mother’s relationships may have affected Denny as he took to causing trouble in and out of school. He caused havoc for Dot when she was babysitting, picked on other children at school and has been pulled up by both Ava and Whitney in the community centre on numerous occasions. But it seems his mother has been blinded by his blonde barnet, as she cannot see Denny as anything other than her innocent little boy… and he knows it. He accused Whitney of assaulting him and the police and social services got involved. But Denny's prank didn’t go to plan as the police believed Whitney and she was given her job back. Will this be the end of Denny's bad behaviour?
Having believed that she was infertile, Sharon discovers she is pregnant on Christmas Day 2005. Dennis is stabbed and killed in the early hours of New Year's Day 2006. Sharon moves to Florida, where she gives birth to their son, naming him Dennis. In June 2012, it was announced that Denny would appear in the summer with his mother and her fiancé John Hewland. Dennis appears on the day of Sharon's wedding to John. Sharon discovers he is missing. John has taken him.. Sharon asks Phil Mitchell to help rescue Dennis. Phil takes both Sharon and Dennis back to Walford. He starts Walford Primary School. He bonds with Phil, although Sharon is wary of them spending time together. Dennis is upset when Derek Branning reveals the truth about his father's murder, as he believed he was a helicopter pilot who died saving others. Sharon admits to Dennis that she lied to protect him and he is angry, although he forgives her. After losing their home at the local bed and breakfast, they move in with Jack Branning. Jack teaches Dennis boxing, leading to him starting a fight in school. Dennis misbehaves in school and around Sharon's friends, when Sharon is not there. Sharon refuses to believe that Dennis is lying about his behaviour and blames those that he has upset.
