Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) is left disgusted in EastEnders after receiving a vile threat from boxing promoter Dorian, who makes it quite clear that, when it comes to getting what he wants, he is capable of anything.
The former landlady of the Vic, as fans will know, is preparing to say goodbye to Walford in exchange for a new life in Abu Dhabi, with huge business opportunities on the horizon for her.
Before she can leave, however, she is cornered by Dorian, who demonstrates that he’s as dodgy as they come when he arrives at the Boxing Den to confront her over her lack of payment for the Pub, Pint and Fight event.
Sharon stands her ground, refusing to pay up, and Dorian grows sinister, prompting Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters) to intervene, throwing his weight around, much to Sharon’s dismay.
Dorian subsequently returns, this time flanked with a bunch of heavies, while Sharon takes hold of a baseball bat and, to her surprise, Keanu is there to back her up as well.
But things take quite a dark turn as Dorian issues a threat, telling Sharon that if she even thinks about going to the police then he will retaliate, making it quite clear that he knows where she and Albie live.

To her horror, Albie is subsequently kidnapped, with Keanu relaying the news to her, revealing that he turned his back for a second in the park only to find his son no longer there.
The police are involved and an investigation is launched, with the Walford community spirit on show as the residents conduct a search of the surrounding areas.

Keanu is quizzed by the police, revealing that he reckons Dorian is to blame, with Sharon also coming to believe that this is the case.
But is Dorian actually responsible for the kidnapping? Or is there another explanation for what’s happened?
