And Kat Moon’s back on June 7th but she’s not pleased to see Roxy!
Ian Beale has been losing the plot of late, what with his constant drinking of energy drinks and assorted booze binges, but it’s about to come to a terrible head when an overwhelmed Ian has a breakdown.
Ian is of course up to his eyeballs in debt, but he’s not curbing his spending at all; in fact, he keeps on showering Mandy with expensive gifts, despite the fact he’s maxing out his credit cards to do so.
And so, with his businesses in jeopardy, and his wedding to Mandy coming up soon, poor Ian just totally loses it and eventually does a runner from the Square.
But before that, as we’ll see on Thursday, Phil Mitchell’s on Ian’s case to make sure that he doesn’t blab about Ben being a murderer.

Poor bloke! Maybe Ian should go and have a chat with Jean Slater, because she of course knows all about mental illness, given she has bi-polar disorder herself.
And today, Gillian Wright, who plays Jean, has revealed to Inside Soap that a lot of the show’s viewers feel “protective” towards her character.
She said, “It’s funny how protective the viewers are of Jean. The other night, I was putting the bins out and a woman screeched up in her car, wound the window down and said, ‘Don’t give him the money! He’s a git!’ I thought that was very sweet.”
And of what’s set to happen between scheming Michael Moon and Jean, Gillian said, “It’s going to get very nasty and brutal.
“Jean is going to have to play dirty with Michael.
“What’s so poignant about what Michael’s doing is that it’s all the more cruel because he’s doing it to a woman who’s dealing with mental illness.
“But don’t worry, she’ll fight back! Jean’s a crusader. She’ll fight this battle with the world against her – but she’ll do it with dignity and grace.”
However, Roxy Mitchell is about to find herself rather short of dignity – and grace for that matter – when Kat Moon returns to Walford and boots Roxy out of the pub.
Kat’s actions come after Roxy confesses that she’s fallen for Alfie, but insists that he knocked her back because he’s in love with Kat.
But an un-amused Kat orders Roxy to leave the pub and so not only has Roxy lost her job, she’s also homeless, again!
See that drama on June 7th.
