In Pictures: Phil and Ian's car crash

By
The Mitchell-Beale feud finally comes to a head next week in an unsuspecting way - a car crash.

The warring EastEnders families embark on a male bonding weekend in the hope of putting their differences to one side once and for all. The trip, however, doesn't go according to plan when Ian (Adam Woodyatt) and Phil (Steve McFadden) are arguing in the car, resulting in a distracted Phil not noticing a tree in the road which sends the four-wheel drive careering off track, with disastrous consequences.

Just when it seems that nobody is seriously injured, another row flares up between Ian and Phil, while Billy (Perry Fenwick) heads off in search of help. Ben (Charlie Jones) and Peter (Thomas Law) remain in the car and, unbeknownst to their fathers, the car beings to roll down the incline.

Ben is rescued, but Peter's life hangs in the balance. Will he survive? Or will the death of Ian's son ensure that the Mitchell-Beale feud lives on?
