It should be a day of rejoicing because Abi has got her A-level results but there’s a dark cloud of uncertainty about Lucy Beale’s murderer that’s still hanging over
Albert Square, threatening to rain on everyone’s parade.

After Ian’s press conference appeal, interest in the case has been reignited, but he’s still worried that his dalliance with Rainie could undermine his statement. Panicked, he turns to Phil for help (I know you’re under pressure, Ian, but how can that ever be a good idea?), and Phil promises to “sort the problem once and for all”. No sooner has he done so than Ian gets some news that gives him something else to fret about.


Omnibus. Linda is upset after Cora's outburst, although Mick encourages her to keep her head held high - but when her confidence takes another knock, Dean takes advantage by whisking his aunt off to the Salon to comfort her. Johnny, Nancy and Lee's plans for revenge end in a dust-up, while Cora argues with Lauren, forcing her to reveal the identity of the prostitute found with Mick. Ian is shaken to the core by an unexpected ultimatum, and Alife worries that Kat is taking on too much, having only just given birth to the twins, so he tries to relieve her burden by visiting Stacey. Can he persuade her to appeal?
