Peter Beale is set for a tough time in tonight’s ‘EastEnders’ (Thursday 4 December), as he tries to explain himself to his dad, Ian.

On Tuesday, viewers saw Ian reveal that he knows Peter sold his sister Lucy drugs, and now the youngster is left with a battle on his hands.

After finding out that Lucy was sold cocaine by Peter shortly before she died, Ian is understandably distraught, and Peter also has Lauren Branning to worry about.

Since his return to Albert Square, Peter has rekindled his romance with Lucy’s best friend, but how will she take the news of his drug dealing?

The cast are currently gearing up for the soap’s 30th anniversary special, which will be celebrated with a live episode, during which Lucy’s killer will be revealed.

Last month, it was announced that Ben Hardy, who plays Peter Beale, will be leaving the soap, though bosses have not revealed how this will affect the storyline.

The murder investigation is set to be rocked by two shock twists in the coming weeks, as Ian discovers further shocking truths about his daughter.

Watch ‘EastEnders’ tonight (Thursday 4 December) to see the action unfold.
