Ever since Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) returned to Walford in the midst of his nervous breakdown last year, he’s been a changed man…
His recovery from mental illness has seen him take on an altogether softer persona from the ruthless businessman he used to be, however, in this week’s episodes, we’re set to see that that aspect of Ian’s personality is to make a comeback.
The drama begins when Ian confides in Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) that despite the fact his daughter Lucy (Hetti Bywater) has vetoed the idea of him opening a restaurant, he wants to go ahead with the plan to rent the space used by the Emporium to open the new venture.

The comedic drama begins on Wednesday, March 6th when Denise (Diane Parish) goes to see Ian (Adam Woodyatt) to thank him for having a chat with housebound Patrick (Rudolph Walker).

In forthcoming episodes of EastEnders, Denise Fox and Ian Beale are set to become more than just friends, and it’s a plot twist that’s taken actress Diane Parish, who of course plays Denise, completely by surprise!
Speaking to Inside Soap, Diane – who’s starred on the show since 2006 – said, “I didn’t see this coming at all!
“When the bosses first told me, I think there must have been some tumbleweed and a few crickets chirping – my reaction was like, ‘Eh?’
“But then I was overjoyed because Adam Woodyatt [who plays Ian] is one of the best actors in the show.
“He knows his character inside out, yet he’s always willing to try something new.” Read more & comment »
As fans of EastEnders will know, Ian Beale suffered a nervous breakdown following the end of his relationship with former stripper Mandy Salter (Nicola Stapleton) and after running up huge amounts of debt…
And in May of last year, on what should have been Ian and Mandy’s wedding day, after Mandy ditched him, we saw Ian wandering away from the Square wearing just his dressing gown and slippers.
He then went missing and only returned to Walford after Lauren Branning (Jacqueline Jossa) spotted him at a shelter for the homeless during the summer and he went to stay with the Branning family while they broke the news to his daughter Lucy (Hetti Bywater) that he was back.
But of course, Ian was almost unrecognizable with overgrown hair and a beard, and he was – at the time – almost catatonic. Read more & comment »

Fans of EastEnders may be pleased to hear that in the episode which airs on September 14th, we’re finally going to discover the identity of the man who’s at the heart of the great Who’s Bonking Kat Moon? mystery, even though that storyline has somewhat petered out of late…
However, one of the remaining potential candidates, Max, Jack and Derek Branning and Michael Moon – Ray Dixon (Chucky Venn) was ruled out a couple of weeks ago – will be exposed as Kat’s lover.
As we’ve reported previously, Jack (Scott Maslen) is the viewers’ fave to turn out to be the phantom Kat diddler, and Derek (Jamie Foreman) is considered the most unlikely, so I guess that leaves just Michael (Steve John Shepherd) and Max (Jake Wood) in the running.
However, given that EastEnders’ writers threw up a curve ball on a previous whodunit – that is, having Darren Miller turn out to be baby George Trott’s dad – I’m not sure I’m ready to discount Derek entirely… Read more & comment »
