Spineless Ian Beale has been giving his frantic, gulping look of terror a lot of late. Usually when someone gives him one of those no-nonsense “tell the truth – or else!” ultimatums before the doof-doof drumbeats kick in. Tonight, the prospect of it happening again is raised when Mick Carter tells Linda that he’s going to get Ian to confess to being the kerb crawler. Surely this secret is going to blow at some point?

We’ve now got Patrick home from hospital, crack-addicted call girl Rainie on the prowl and Phil using his typically bruising methods of diplomacy. For how much longer can Denise be kept in the dark?

About this programme

Omnibus. Mick asks Lee, Whitney and Johnny to skip their plans to go to Notting Hill Carnival and instead recreate the street festival in the Vic in an attempt to make things right with Linda, but the landlady is unimpressed despite their efforts. Patrick returns from hospital in a low mood so Ian suggests to Diane that they invite some of his friends over. Later Alfie, Peter and Fat Boy continue the homecoming celebrations at the pub, the warm welcome does the trick but Cora is still avoiding her old companion - a merry Ian also receives an ultimatum from Mick, who tells him he has to put his own family first. Meanwhile, Tosh and Tina struggle to see eye-to-eye with their baby plans, Bianca is not best pleased when Terry gives Donna a hand, and when Sharon catches Phil with Rainie he is forced to tell her about Ian, and takes her to Cora to sort out.
