EastEnders’ Cindy and Ian Beale cause outrage with business decision

EastEnders: Cindy returns to Albert Square

EastEnders’ Cindy Beale (played by Michelle Collins) and Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) are set to leave the residents of Albert Square appalled in upcoming episodes.

The pair have already caused a stir this week with their business venture as it turns out they’ve gone into business with rapist Dean Wicks (Matt Di Angelo).

Although Cindy had no idea the villain had raped Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) a few years ago, her and Ian weren’t willing to listen to locals’ demands to stop the deal.

In Wednesday’s episode of the BBC soap, Cindy eventually tried to tell Dean their deal was over, but he had already signed a contract and refused to budge.

Official spoilers reveal the two will continue to upset the Walford residents in future episodes.

In scenes yet to air, Cindy and Ian reluctantly make plans on the renovation of their new shop ‘Beale’s Eels’, but the Knights are appalled at them for their new business plans.

In last night’s instalment, the Walford stalwarts gathered in The Vic to support Linda and assure her they don’t want Dean back in the Square.

In 2014, Dean raped Linda in The Vic after becoming obsessed with her, but the traumatised barmaid was unable to tell anyone for months.

He also attempted to rape Roxy Mitchell (Rita Simons) not long after, and she took Dean to court but he was ultimately acquitted.

Dean left Walford in 2016 and hasn’t been since – until this week.

While he denies raping Linda and accused her of cheating on her then-husband Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) with him, most of the Square are rallying around Linda to show their support.

However, Ian tried to argue against them so they didn’t have to end the business agreement.

“I spoke to my solicitor this morning and they said because there’s a contract and because he was found not guilty…” Ian argued.

“That means nothing,” Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) pointed out.

He continued: “Linda, it’s not that we don’t believe you… your accusation didn’t even make it to court.”

It seems as though the Beales will be going ahead with their initial plans, but how will the locals respond?

It’s possible they will boycott the business, spelling more trouble for Ian and Cindy.

Furthermore, Cindy’s daughters Gina Knight (Francesca Henry) and Anna Knight (Molly Rainford) had finally started to make progress regarding their relationship with Cindy – could her latest move destroy that?

EastEnders continues on Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
