MEL Owen decides to exploit her ex-husband Ian Beale’s obvious crush on her in EastEnders next week as she gets a worrying threat from Phil Mitchell about the money that’s been stolen from the E20. During a staff meeting at the club, Phil and wife Sharon point out that it was Mel’s responsibility to make sure the club was locked. They give her until the end of the week to repay some of the missing £15k, leaving Mel to come up with a scheme to make some money. Remembering that Ben gave Kathy Beale a necklace from the New Year’s heist before fleeing to France, Mel (Tamsin Outhwaite) heads over to the chippy and tells Ian that she’s looking for a new food supplier for the club. Blinded by his feelings for Mel and hoping to reignite her feelings for him, Ian, EastEnders veteran Adam Woodyatt, offers to make her a dish he cooked for her when they were a couple to see if it’s suitable for the new menu. When Mel agrees, deluded Ian convinces … [Read more...] about EastEnders spoilers: Mel Owen tries to burgle Ian Beale’s house after seducing him

Ian Beale has been wondering where his beloved wife Jane Beale is for months - as have EastEnders viewers. She was driven out of Walford by Max Branning - and is probably still unaware everyone in Albert Square now knows about his evil revenge plan and his downfall, and for that reason is probably still in hiding. But tonight, she finally gets in contact with Ian. However, fans will be disappointed as Ian doesn't seem to care now that Mel Owen has returned. In a clip shared by EastEnders, the Albert Square original is seen way too involved in a conversation with his ex-wife that he misses a call from his current wife. Will he call her back? Or will he want to get back with Mel, despite their marriage lasting all of a few hours? Mel, meanwhile, is much more interested in finding Ben Mitchell and his stolen money. EastEnders fans were ecstatic as Mel finally returned to Walford earlier this week after her exit 16 years ago. Viewers watched as Mel turned up at the Arches and paid Ben a … [Read more...] about EastEnders spoiler: Jane Beale gets back in touch with Ian Beale – but will he be distracted by Mel Owen?
Tamzin Outhwaite made her full return to EastEnders tonight – but we’re still no clearer as to why Mel Owen is back in Albert Square after almost 16 years. Her contribution mainly involved emasculating Ian Beale (again!), slyly insulting Sharon Mitchell (“I’ve seen so many old faces today, Sharon.”) and hiding behind trees spying on Ben Mitchell. Not that I had a problem with that. I did feel a bit sorry for Ian though. In the current moral climate, maybe the writers decided to make an example of a sad, middle-aged bloke who thinks he has a chance with a beautiful woman. I was too busy recalling the late 90s, when pretty much the only reason I watched EastEnders was because Mel was in it. Her Millennium Eve wedding to Ian is still in my all-time Top 10 episodes. Whether Tamzin will stick around is her agent’s guess. But she must be pleased to see little has changed. The police are useless as ever. A little girl goes missing and they send a couple of … [Read more...] about Ian Beale bullied again as Mel Owen returns to EastEnders without explanation
Melanie Owen will shock Ian Beale as she makes her presence known on Albert Square. On Tuesday, the Walford legend was first seen on screen after 16 years away as she turned up at the Arches. And during tonight's episode of EastEnders, it's time for her to surprise Ben's brother Ian Beale - also her former lover. Ian is left stunned as she waltzes into the cafe and the pair catch up on what they've been up to. However it isn't an innocent chat - Mel has an ulterior motive, but what is it? On Monday, viewers discovered that Ben took the loot and is keeping it hidden in the Arches. The theft from Billy Mitchell and Jay Brown's funeral home left the rest of the gang seriously out of pocket and on the run from the police. Ben thinks he's got away with it, but his unassuming mum Kathy Beale will accidentally expose him later this week. Mel sits down for a catch up with ex-husband Ian, who she dumped just hours after their wedding on discovering he was lying about his daughter's terminal … [Read more...] about EastEnders spoiler: Melanie Owen shocks Ian Beale when she steps into the cafe
