New, behind-the-scenes pictures from the ‘EastEnders’ team appear to reveal that Ian Beale is set to attempt suicide.
Actors Adam Woodyatt and Laurie Brett, who play Ian and Jane Beale, have been spotted filming near London’s Olympic Park.
The snaps show Adam attached to a harness, as Laurie reaches up, in an apparent attempt to convince him to climb down.
The Beales have had a dramatic 16 months following the murder of Lucy Beale, and they’re currently struggling to keep the fact Bobby murdered his sister a secret.
Ian’s life is set to get even more hectic when he comes face-to-face with his mother Kathy, who he currently believes is dead.
The character has been at the centre of a number of emotional plots over the years, including one, which saw mental health issues drive him to living on the streets.
There is no word yet on when the scenes will air.
