Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) and his family will be left reeling next week in EastEnders when the police inform them of new developments in the Lucy Beale murder investigation.

Warning: spoiler alert!

The family will be told that Jake Stone (Jamie Lomas) is being released from prison on bail as new evidence has come to light.

The police do not disclose further details, but Ian will find out more from another Albert Square resident.  

The scenes will air on BBC One and RTÉ One on Thursday July 17 and Friday July 18.
