However, with Ian's track record with women this could spell disaster for Jean as his wives don't tend to stick around Walford for long - if they survive.

His first wife Cindy died in prison, his second Mel fled only to return recently, his third wife Laura died and his fourth wife Jane was left paralysed by his son Bobby and fled Walford.
