Denise Fox (Diane Parish) may have found out what her fiancé was up to on the night that Lucy was murdered - but that still doesn't stop Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) from trying to worm his way out of trouble.

Viewers of Tuesday's episode saw Denise come face to face with the volatile Rainie Cross (Tanya Franks), the prostitute who Ian was with on the evening his daughter was killed. And now, in scenes to be shown tonight, Ian will be seen pleading for forgiveness, only for Denise to lock herself in the Minute Mart as he tries to talk her round.

But will Ian's efforts be enough to stop Denise from leaving for good? Or is their relationship now doomed? Find out when EastEnders airs these scenes at 7.30pm on BBC1.
