How do I love thee? Let me count the wives... Well, there was Cindy, who tried to have him killed; Mel, who ditched him at the altar after he lied about his daughter having cancer; Laura, who fell down the stairs; Jane, who left him; and now there’s Mandy.
Yes, the path of marital love has never been a smooth one for Ian, and if Lucy has her way on Monday, it looks like it will be doomed yet again.
Determined that her father sees Mandy for who she really is, Lucy starts cancelling the wedding behind Ian’s back. Desperate for Mandy to get her dream wedding, on Tuesday Ian is trying to finalise the arrangements, only to find that nobody wants to be his Best Man. It’s left to Max to come up trumps, when he hears Ian declare his love for his fiancée.
Despite the death of Mandy’s mother on Wednesday (something cheery to throw into the mix!), Ian is still determined that his latest dream wedding will go ahead on Friday.
For someone who is supposed to be the Alan Sugar of Walford, Ian certainly has his fair share of money problems, and when Janine insists she wants her loan paid by the end of the day, life is about to get a whole lot worse.
So, will Mandy say ‘I do’? And, when Lucy gives Ian an ultimatum – it’s her or Mandy – who will he choose? Personally, I’d grab a whole bunch of vol- au-vents from the reception and stuff them down both women’s throats, just to shut the two of them up, once and for all.
On a lighter note, Alfie is eyeing up Roxy in her negligee on Monday and then asks her out for a curry so that they can be ‘lonely together’. Oh, come on. One poppadom and she’s anyone’s. Alas, the evening is ruined when Jean tells Alfie how much Kat misses him, and he decides to visit her.
