EASTENDERS

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - SEVEN DAYS -

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.
