Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) was destroyed in EastEnders when Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) revealed that she didn’t reciprocate his feelings, and therefore he takes drastic action in order to get revenge.
When the BBC One soap returned to screens on Monday (September 7), it became apparent that Ian had been harbouring feelings for long-time mate Sharon.
Lockdown had evidently brought the pair closer together, and with Dotty Cotton (Milly Zero) having worked out that Ian had fallen for Sharon, she made him believe she felt the same way.
Unfortunately for Ian, Sharon didn’t reciprocate those feelings, and she told him as such in Thursday’s episode (September 10).
In Friday’s episode (September 11), Ian found himself humiliated when Dotty revealed how Sharon had rejected him in front of a pub full of people, and thus he left the pub.
Next week, he’s horrified to learn that Peter (Dayle Hudson) has set him up on a dating app.
However, that’s not really what he’s concerned about, as he has a meeting with councillor Douglas to try and get his backing to become Chair of the Planning Committee.
As the meeting gets underway, Sharon attempts to help Ian out, and thus she turns on the charm with Douglas.
Ian’s ego is still bruised, and therefore he takes such a thing badly — suggesting that he and Douglas conduct their meeting elsewhere.
Later in the week, Ian — still stung over Sharon’s rejection — makes her a list of targets to meet for The Vic, but it becomes apparent that said targets are simply unrealistic.
Sharon points out this out — suggesting that he’d better grow up — but Ian’s having none of it, and informs her she’d better meet the targets, or he’ll hire someone else.
Will Ian follow through on such a threat?
One to watch: Thursday September 17 at 7:35pm on BBC One.
