With Denny’s life left hanging on the line, Sharon cuts all ties with Ian.

In last night’s dramatic visit to Walford Ian, Phil and Denny were all injured in a car crash caused by Phil’s drunk driving. In a desperate bid to protect Bobby’s killer secret, Ian agreed to take the wrap for the crash, whilst Phil agreed to persuade Sharon to keep schtum about Bobby.

When she arrives home from hospital, Sharon tells Ian that he is dead to her.
