EastEnders spoilers: Ian Beale is bound, gagged and kidnapped by Phil and Max – first look pictures

Ian will come to rue his decision to do Carl's dirty work

Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) has endured some torment at the hands of Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) over the years, but this latest ordeal will leave him pining for the days when the worst he could expect was the odd bog wash.


In scenes to be shown later this month, Max (Jake Wood) and Phil will find out that menacing bad boy Carl (Daniel Coonan) has been blackmailing Ian into giving a false witness statement against Max at his trial.


Taking their revenge, Max and Phil will kidnap Ian and take him to a deserted wasteland, leaving Squeal Beale terrified that they are going to kill him. But will Max show Ian mercy after everything he has done? Or is the show’s longest-serving character about to meet his maker? Find out when the episodes air on Tuesday 12 and Thursday 14 November.
