EastEnders star Letitia Dean has responded to Sharon Beale’s recent move to manipulate her husband Ian

Last week’s festive episodes revealed that Sharon was the one behind Ian’s (Adam Woodyatt) attack at the Vic after he staged it with her ex-husband Phil (Steve McFadden) in revenge for the boat accident

As a result of Monday (28 December) Ian was still recovering from what he thought was a stomach bug – even though Sharon had actually tried to get rid of it again with a poisoned Christmas pudding

Sharon’s quest for revenge hit another catch when Ian’s mother, Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth) encouraged him to repeal as it was evident that Sharon had no feelings for him

After Ian confessed that he thought his mother was right, Sharon was cornered and had to pretend she was “falling in love” with her husband to get him back on his side >
Talking about this latest twist, Letitia Dean said Sharon was “definitely” concerned that Kathy could see through her plans for Ian

“She fought with Kathy anyway and that speeds things up for her – she breaks Ian down, banishes him from his family – although some might say he did most of it himself – and drives a wedge between him and his mother”remarked the actress

This act allows the EastEnders bosses to re-enact the classic Sharon-Kathy feud that lasted into the early 1990s

“Kathy could be the one that makes Sharon crack, I think,” Dean admitted. “Sharon knows that Kathy realizes something is wrong, but The Vic will freeze before she admits defeat! She is determined to continue her plan and she must be very close to Ian to do so “

Dean added that Kathy’s outwardly hostile reception of Ian’s new marriage ultimately led Sharon to lie because she was in love with the Walford City Council

“I think Sharon realizes that if she doesn’t do something pretty drastic, all of her malicious hard work will be ruined,” she said. “Ian showed Sharon how he feels, and she hasn’t really had him throughout her marriage emotionally manipulated when they both perceived each other’s feelings – or nonexistent feelings in Sharon’s case

“She’s not happy about this, but she knows that telling Ian that she is falling in love with him will have absolutely the desired effect – he won’t listen to his mother or anyone else and his world will be around Sharon turn perfect! “
