EastEnders' Bobby Beale tries to help Kathy with wedding guest wish

Kathy Beale (played by Gillian Taylforth) has finally been able to get her wedding preparations in full swing, and on Wednesday she expressed a wish over the guest list.

The EastEnders stalwart happily told her family on Wednesday: "The more the merrier, I want everyone there - friends, family - a real celebration."

She quickly added: "And it wouldn't be right without my son there, too. I want Ian at the wedding."

Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) hasn't been seen in the soap since he made a dramatic exit in January 2021.

Determined to help Kathy's wedding dreams become a reality, will Bobby (Clay Milner Russell) be able to get Ian to come to the big day and fulfill Kathy's other guestlist hopes?

Official spoilers from the BBC soap confirm Bobby will continue on his quest to help Rocky get Kathy's wedding guests in Walford.

Freddie Slater (Bobby Brazier) encourages his friend to do whatever it takes to get each guest to RSVP.

Later, Bobby struggles to do so and gets a knock-back - but who might have rejected the invite?

Kathy thanks her grandson for trying, however, Bobby refuses to give up.

Could it be Ian who will turn down the invite to his mother's wedding?

Kathy detailed how important it would be for him to make an appearance on the big day, but the iconic character hasn't been in Walford for a long time.

He left in explosive circumstances after Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) tried to poison him before having a change of heart.

However, Ian briefly appeared at Dot Cotton's (June Brown) funeral last year.

Unbeknownst to the other guests, Ian watched from outside the church as mourners gathered to say goodbye to the Albert Square legend.

Standing behind a tree, he tearfully remarked: "Goodbye, Dot," before leaving.

EastEnders fans will be aware that Ian is set to make a shock return alongside his "dead" wife, Cindy Beale (Michelle Collins).

Could the wedding be the day the duo make their big return in a move which will shock Walford?

EastEnders continues on Monday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
