EastEnders spoilers: Ian seethes as the police arrest Jake – first look pictures

The Beales reel as the investigating officers swoop on Albert Square tonight

So, do we believe Jake Stone (Jamie Lomas) when he talks about his whereabouts on the night that Lucy was killed? All that stuff about a cab driver with a name tattooed on his neck? 


Well, Lauren (Jacqueline Jossa), for one, isn’t convinced, and will be seen tonight waiting for news from the police regarding her statement. But she isn’t left hanging around for long: by the end of this evening’s episode, the investigating officers will have swooped in and put the jittery sous-chef under arrest.

As Jake is led away in handcuffs while protesting his innocence, a furious Ian (Adam Woodyatt) and Peter (Ben Hardy) are held back by Phil (Steve McFadden) and Mick (Danny Dyer). But has the big EastEnders whodunnit really come to a conclusion so quickly?
