EastEnders spoilers - Max Branning causes a huge stir when he publicly accuses Sharon of Ian's attack

Max Branning (Jake Wood) is on a mission to find out exactly what has happened to missing Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) in tonight’s EastEnders on at 8.05pm (See our TV Guide for full listings).

Earlier on Max spots the police talking to Bobby Beale (Clay Milner Russell) and asks if there is any news on Ian who seems to have vanished into thin air. When Bobby explains that Ian’s wife Sharon (Letitia Dean) was unable to help with any investigations, Max is determined to get to the truth and quizzes Sharon.

Under pressure, Sharon starts to panic but retaliates, telling Max he only wants to prove Tina Carter’s (Luisa Bradshaw-White) innocence so he can win back Linda Carter (Kellie Bright).

Meanwhile later in the Vic, Max is devastated to see Linda and her husband Mick (Danny Dyer) together. Will it trigger Max into action?

Elsewhere Chelsea Fox (Zaraah Abrahams) mentions the holiday she’s got planned which leaves her mum Denise (Diane Parish) and grand-dad Patrick (Rudolph Walker) very suspicious.
