EastEnders: Ian Beale leaves Albert Square – with killer Bobby in tow

The pressure gets too much for the Beales next week - but what will all this mean for the innocent Max?

Ian Beale is to do a runner from Walford next week – and he’ll be taking pint-sized murderer Bobby with him.


A panicky Ian makes the decision to flee with his son following a heart to heart in the launderette with a newly released Dot.

Dot will be seen admitting that she wishes she’d turned Nick in to the police for his own benefit – a sentiment that makes Ian start to question his own decision making as regards Bobby.

Later on, Ian agrees to meet with lawyer Marcus Christie in order to give Max an alibi. But he’s stopped in his tracks when Bobby is sent home from school after getting into a fight.

Torn as to what he should do for the best, Ian then makes a shocking decision and does a flit in the middle of the night with Bobby.

So will Bobby evade justice thanks to Ian’s actions? And will Max go down for the crime of killing Lucy?

Watch a 60-second rundown of next week’s episodes of EastEnders below.
