Ian Beale face to face with his would-be killer in EastEnders return | The Sun

BAD memories come back to the surface for Ian Beale next week as he makes his way to Albert Square to find Cindy and Peter.

The EastEnders legend played by Adam Woodyatt comes face to face with his ex-wife who once tried to murder him to avenge her son.

The Walford businessman fled from Albert Square in early 2021 after finding out that his then-wife Sharon Watts had been poisoning him.

As viewers of the London-based program will remember, Sharon blamed Ian for her son Denny's tragic drowning in February, 2020.

With Ian running away, Sharon (portrayed by Letitia Dean) was terrified she'd face comeuppance for her actions but her fears eventually died down.

However, the blonde bombshell is set for a massive shock next week on BBC One as Ian Beale comes back to find Cindy Beale (Michelle Collins).

Thankfully for Sharon, Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) takes a stand in her favour.

Coming up, Cindy meets with her son Peter (Thomas Law) as he takes a call from Ian who demands he get his mum back to France.
