It also leads to him trying to get the Knights on side amid their feud over Cindy, but it does not go to plan.

Knowing the history George Knight and Cindy share and that Cindy is keen to stay in Walford for her daughters, Ian is desperate to get their family restaurant plans off the ground. He fears he could lose Cindy if he doesn't make it work and give her what she wants.

But a shocking phone call could change everything, as Ian makes a huge discovery next week. Spoilers reveal that Ian gets a phone call that could scupper his plans, with there being a competitor for the lease on the pawnbrokers which he's hoping to get. Wanting to secure the location, Ian heads to The Vic in a bid to make sure the Knights hand over Cindy's share of the money, playing on his recent heart attack for sympathy.

But George's partner Elaine sees right through him and quickly dashes his hopes. George drops the news that Cindy has no claim to any of the sales money after she left the family, and went back to her real identity. How will Cindy react, and does this mean the business plan is out the window?
