It's good to see bad things happen to bad people. Is Ian Beale bad? He's always been bad, right? It's hard to keep-up with who's good and who's bad anymore. Phil Mitchell was smoking crack not long ago. Nixed it though, we assume. No more crack for Phil.
The bedgraggled Beale makes his return to Albert Square with a brilliant beard [formed after just four months] and a wooly hat, which, looking out the window right now, seems counter-productive.
More details on how the story will develop [why do people read spoilers for soaps? That makes no sense] on The Sun's website.
Bonus: Phil Mitchell loving a bit of crack below.
