Ian (Adam Woodyatt) and Ben (Joshua Pascoe) continue to put on a united front against the Mitchells in the coming days, expressing their delight as they chat about Albert Square being a Phil-free zone for a long time to come.
However, Ian is left stunned when a smug Ben finally tells him that his statement about Phil (Steve McFadden) causing Stella's death was a pack of lies.
Ian is disgusted by what Ben has done and points out the seriousness of the situation, reminding the teen that he could end up in serious trouble for perverting the course of justice.
However, Ben is defiant as he continues to maintain that he's doing the right thing as Phil deserves it.
Deeply troubled, Ian visits Phil in prison and offers his help, but soon changes his mind when he ends up in another bitter argument with his arch-rival.
Back on the Square, though, Ian continues to struggle with being complicit in Ben's deception. Will he try to find a way to get falsely-accused Phil out of prison? Or will he decide to leave his long-time nemesis to rot?
