For a while it looked like we ought to have sympathy for Ian Beale, what with all that horrible crying and despair. But normal service is resumed tonight when he sacks café-worker Tina on the spot, despite her doing absolutely nothing wrong. Maybe Phil was right all those weeks ago when he said that Ian was “still a weasel”.

There’s still little reason for smiles to be cracked at the Jackson/Butcher house as the day of Carol’s consultation dawns. With the family’s financial woes hanging over her head, Carol opts to have a single rather than a double mastectomy so she can get back to work more quickly. Let’s hope Ian treats her better than he does Tina.


Alfie gets lumbered with a load of ice-cream, although he is soon shifting it to his customers - only for Aleks to fine him for trading without the proper licence. Heading to the market manager's office, he again comes close to uncovering his secret and sets out to discover what he's hiding. Carol visits hospital to discuss her mastectomy, although Bianca is shocked by the decision she makes about her treatment. Tina is on her best behaviour ahead of her performance review with Ian, but it doesn't go the way she's hoped, and Johnny's mobile keeps buzzing with messages from a keen new love interest. Dean couldn't care less that Shirley has gone missing, while Nikki returns to Walford.
