EastEnders viewers have seen Ian Beale (played by Adam Woodyatt) go to great lengths to keep Dotty Cotton (Milly Zero) onside after she discovered the truth about his involvement in Dennis Rickman’s (Bleu Landau) death. Now, as she ups her demands from Walford’s resident entrepreneur, could Ian come up with a plan to frame his tormentor as she edges closer to telling the truth?
Earlier this year, the residents of Albert Square all joined together to celebrate the Queen Vic’s title of The Best Pub in London.
In true EastEnders fashion, things were far from smooth-sailing as the boat ended up crashing, and several of the guests were trapped on-board.
One unlucky resident failed to make it out of the tragedy alive, in the form of Dennis, who was dragged out the water unconscious.
Dennis’ mum Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean) remained unaware of her son’s fate as she just gave birth to a new baby boy.

Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters) delivered the heartbreaking news to the mum as she demanded him to leave Walford for good.
Sharon has been quick to point the finger at both Keanu and her estranged husband Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden).
However, she is still yet to find out the truth as BBC viewers saw Ian lock Dennis in a room on-board the boat, which made it harder for him to escape in time.
Another person who knows of Ian’s involvement is Dotty, who has been blackmailing the businessman ever since she discovered the damning voicemail Dennis left just before he died.
Dennis called Sharon to explain what Ian had done to him but she still remains none-the-wiser of her best friend’s actions towards her son.
Ever since the tragedy, Ian has been rallying round as his guilt continues to consume him, but could he end up getting the upper-hand over Dotty in a huge twist?
Speaking to Digital Spy, Millie Zero who plays Dotty explained her character would be prepared to do whatever it takes to see Ian get his comeuppance.
Millie said: “She is willing to go all the way. She is definitely prepared to tell Sharon but she wants Ian to feel the burn first. If she told Sharon now, it would ruin it.”

“She’s going to make him squirm over the next few months by getting closer to Sharon and being right there in front of his face all the time.
“She’s not going to stop as he’s not stopping either. He even gets a memorial bench for Dennis – councillor Beale, Saint of Walford. That is what she can’t stand. She’s willing to really push him on this one.”
Milly also revealed Dotty’s true motives for wanting to out Ian’s crimes and the true reason for her asking for The Arches.
“Dotty really knows right from wrong. She genuinely believes that Ian is a hypocrite and a liar, and she thinks Sharon has a right to know this.

“She only reason she’s asking for money to buy the Arches and whatever else is because he asked her what she wanted.
“Her real issue is that she is seeing Ian be so close to Sharon and that is what’s killing her. It’s definitely more about the moral side of it rather than her own power.”
However, when Dotty finally chooses her moment to deliver the news to Sharon, will she believe her?
It seems unlikely Sharon would trust scheming Dotty over her best friend and could lead to further complications for the teenager.
Could Ian try and frame Dotty for his own crime in a last-ditch attempt to keep Sharon on-side?
EastEnders airs Monday at 8pm and Tuesday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
