IAN may have lost his knack for making money recently, but he’s still a dab hand at making enemies. Plenty of people are annoyed at him this week, including Max who demands his money back, only for Ian to reveal that he saw him sharing a kiss with Linda.
Max doesn’t take kindly to blackmail and comes up with a plan to get his revenge, but on the night of the Lucy Beale Award presentation, it’s clear that t a smug Ian thinks he’s regained the upper hand.
But even if he has succeeded in outsmarting Max, there are still plenty of other people hoping Ian gets his comeuppance. Peter, Tina and Suki are still bearing a grudge, while Rainie and Stuart are annoyed when he lets slip to Whitney
that Tiffany is planning to be their surrogate.
After he’s arrested, even Kathy and Bobby seem to have reached breaking point.
So, when Ian is attacked in the Vic, just which of his many foes is responsible? Elsewhere, Katy accompanies Mick on a trip to the children’s home, where she tries to convince him his childhood trauma is down to Shirley.
