With Phil Mitchell currently languishing in hospital, it seems that Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) is readily taking on the task of keeping Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) in his place.
In scenes to be shown during tonight’s episode, Jack finds out that Ian is testifying against Max and bursts into Scarlett’s and angrily confronts him.
“I just told the police what I saw,” begs Ian, referring to Max’s recent arrest for tampering with the car carrying Phil and Carl that crashed so dramatically last week.
“You liar!” retaliates Jack, grabbing Ian by the neck and forcing him towards the door. “You are going to go to the station and retract the statement and tell the truth!”
However, the tables quickly turn when Ian insists that his statement is true and that he will claim witness harassment if Jack doesn’t leave. So will Jack continue to strong-arm Ian? Or will the restaurateur’s statement be Max’s undoing? Find out tonight at 7.30pm on BBC1.
