Episode 4433



Patsy Palmer and Lindsey Coulson have gone; Jo Joyner, June Brown and Charlie Brooks are taking breaks soon. Albert Square could end up being an eerily quiet place if any more people leave. For now, though, we have a wedding to look forward to. True there’s an element of déjà vu – after all this is Ian Beale’s fifth attempt to tie the knot – but there’s yet to be a Walford wedding without a major drama. Ben’s confession, his mounting debts and his obsession with Mandy have almost pushed Ian over the edge.

In what promises to be a powerful episode, he’s given an ultimatum that leads him to have a complete breakdown.


Ian is deeply agitated on the morning of his wedding, and matters get worse when he finds Phil has booked an expensive car for the ceremony and Janine wants her loan repaid by the end of the day. He then receives a further blow when he discovers Lucy has got rid of Mandy's ring - and as the situation spirals out of control, he is forced to choose between his daughter and his fiancee.
