EastEnders fans root for Ian Beale's attackers as murder plot is revealed

EastEnders fans have been left rooting for Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) after she was revealed as one of her husband Ian Beale’s (Adam Woodyatt) attackers.

The Christmas special had viewers on the edge of their seats as the hour-long episode got to the bottom of the terrifying threats against Ian.

With Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) under suspicion, fans were shocked to find out the real culprits – Sharon, and Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden).

Fans were then left on a classic festive cliffhanger as Sharon was seen attempting to poison Ian with a Christmas pudding.

However, viewers made their allegiances clear on social media – and it seems they’re not siding with Ian on this one.

‘Queen Sharon omg we don’t deserve her iconicness,’ one said, while another added: ‘I am giddy at Sharon and Phil teaming up.’

‘Sharon could run me over and I would say thanks,’ one more said, while another fan spurred her on, writing: ‘Go on Sharon queen, do it yourself.’

Meanwhile, many praised Letitia and Adam’s amazing performances.

Things all became clear for viewers when Sharon and Phil visited Denny’s grave.

While Sharon urged Phil to kill Ian within the hour, he returned to the Queen Vic to find Ben standing over him with a baseball bat – and realised his son would be suspect number one if he were to die.

Clearly fed up with Phil’s excuses, Sharon took matters into her own hands.

Will Ian make it out alive?
