Eric Mitchell (1940 -1985) is a former member of the Mitchell family. He was Father of Phil Mitchell, Grant Mitchell and Sam Mitchell, and husband of Peggy Mitchell. Also he is the brother of Clive Mitchell and Archie Mitchell, as well as the Uncle of Ronnie Mitchell and Roxy Mitchell, Charlie Mitchell and Harry Mitchell.

Eric Mitchell Married Peggy Mitchell in the 1960s because she was pregnant with Phil. Eric, a keen boxer, worked for gangster Johnny Allen. Johnny would taunt Eric, making him do demeaning jobs because Eric was a better boxer than him. Eric fell in love with a woman called Maureen and planned to elope with her, but changed his mind, unable to desert his family, who he grew to resent.

Eric took his angst out on Peggy and was often violent towards her and Phil. Peggy considered leaving when her sons, Phil and Grant, were teenagers, and once even tried to seduce Johnny Allen, but he turned her down. Peggy tried to save her marriage by having another child in 1975, her only daughter Sam.

Her relationship with Eric improved, but only temporarily, and when Kevin Masters employed Peggy to work at his minicab firm, they began a secret affair. When Eric developed cancer, Peggy gave up work to care for him, after Eric's died in 1985 of cancer Peggy went on to marry Frank Butcher, albeit nearly 13 years later.
