EASTENDERS’ Ian Beale hides his guilt over Dennis Mitchell’s death as a devastated Sharon returns home with her new baby.
The teenager died during the boat tragedy in Friday’s episode, just as mum Sharon gave birth to another son.
Sharon (Leticia Dean) struggles to cope in the wake of Dennis’ death and as she returns to the Square, despite Ian and Kathy rallying round her.
They do all they can to support her but little does Sharon know that Ian (Adam Woodyatt) is wracked with guilt over what happened… but will he tell her the truth?
Viewers know that Ian is to blame for Dennis’ death after locking him in a room on the boat as the residents of Albert Square partied up on deck.
Ian had locked Dennis (Bleu Landau) in the room after discovering he had had his son Bobby beaten up.
Ian did try to rescue Dennis and managed to get him out of the room but the boat had already filled with water and they were both dragged out by the current.
And while Ian was rushed to hospital, Dennis was pronounced dead at the scene.
It was left to Keanu Taylor to tell Sharon what had happened – just minutes after she had given birth to her new baby, a boy.
She blamed Keanu for Dennis’ death and told him she never wanted to see him again leaving him devastated too.
