First Look: Steven Beale walks back into Walford

By
This is the moment that EastEnders' Steven Beale walks back into Walford for the first time after five years living abroad.

On Friday, viewers finally saw Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) come face-to-face with his stalker and discover that it was his ex-wife's eldest son, Steven – portrayed by soap newcomer Aaron Sidwell.

An EastEnders source told DS: "Ian couldn't believe his eyes when he found out it was Steven who was stalking him.

"But now, with Ian nowhere to be found, Steven walks back into Walford and reconnects with Peter and Lucy, his younger brother and sister."

They added: "Jane, however, is more concerned as to the whereabouts of her husband – but just what is Steven hiding? And how long will it be before everybody finds out?"

Upon learning that Ian wasn't his biological father, Steven left for New Zealand to live with his real father, Simon 'Wicksy' Wicks (Nick Berry).

Steven was previously played by Edward Savage between 1989 and 2002.
