EastEnders fans are set to see Christian's (John Partridge) return to the soap on Monday May 19 on BBC One and RTÉ One.

Warning: spoiler alert!

Ian (Adam Woodyatt) travels to Birmingham when preparations for daughter Lucy's funeral overwhelm him.

Ian visits Christian's home because he has not heard whether Christian and sister Jane (Laurie Brett) will be attending the service.

Christian assures Ian he will be there, but Jane later tells Christian that she cannot face attending.
