EastEnders teen Bobby Beale will be left devastated tonight (September 12) after making a shocking discovery about his dad Ian.
Viewers know that Bobby is already finding life back in Walford extremely difficult and has been suffering unsettling hallucinations of his dead sister Lucy.
As Bobby's problems intensify, an oblivious Rainie enjoys winding him up but takes things too far by spitefully revealing the full truth about her night with Ian several years ago.
Ian paid Rainie for sex on the night of Lucy's death back in 2014 – a secret that subsequently haunted him in the months afterwards.
Distraught after learning the truth, Bobby turns to his new friend Max Branning for support – but their chat only serves to leave him even more conflicted.
Disgusted at his father, Bobby throws a bucket of water over Ian when he sees him and storms off.
With Ian confused as to what's provoked such an angry response, Max explains that Bobby knows what happened with Rainie and urges him to be upfront with his son.
Before Ian can take Max's advice, the situation escalates when he catches Bobby preparing to leave the family home.
After Ian pleads with the teenager to stay, Bobby eventually agrees – but later takes drastic action to confront his past. What is Bobby planning?
EastEnders airs these scenes tonight at 7.30pm on BBC One.
