While viewers are still unaware as to what exactly is motivating Max, he’s certainly not pulling any punches when it comes to separating Jack from young Matthew.

Scenes just broadcast on the BBC1 soap saw Charlie shown covered in cuts and bruises as a result of a beating administered by a leather-gloved Max.

The injuries are now being used as evidence by the police that the fracas between Jack and Charlie in last week’s episodes was more serious than previously thought.

With investigating officers now insisting that Charlie sought hospital treatment following the punch-up, the future is looking bleak for the beleaguered Jack. Max, meanwhile, is smirking away, confident that he’ll now achieve his goals.

As for what happens next: a recent EastEnders trailer seemed to show Jack planning to flee the country with the kids in an effort to keep his family together.
