You have to wonder what kind of dark places Adam Woodyatt has been going to in his head of late. His performance as a grieving Ian has been raw and – let’s face it – necessarily prolonged. For episode after episode, he’s had to shed tears, to the point where he must now be a desiccated husk.

Here, the delivery of Lucy’s funeral outfit becomes too much for the bereaved dad and he flees to Birmingham in search of Jane. Amid the anguish, there is, however, a treat for long-term viewers: the return of fan favourite Christian Clarke (John Partridge), who lends support to both his sister and Ian.


Things get too much for Ian while making the final preparations for the funeral and he flees Walford, searching for Jane at Christian's flat in Birmingham. On his return to Albert Square, the grieving father unwittingly puts Max in an awkward position when he turns to him for comfort. Mick is desperate to put things right between Shirley and Dean, and is surprised when Stan offers to help. However, the landlord soon has other things to worry about after a comment from Tina sets him thinking about his childhood again, while Linda is surprised to discover what Johnny has been getting up to online. Carol is unsure whether she should have a hen party during a time of mourning in the Square.
