BBC soap EastEnders is upping the ante with its sinister storyline involving Sharon Mitchell (played by Letitia Dean) trying to slowly kill off Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt). Ian is becoming more ill as time goes on but is unaware why he’s not well. But what are Sharon’s motivations for harming Ian in such a dangerous way?
Sharon started her poisoning scheme towards the end of 2020 but her plans initially failed.
However, she didn’t give up and continued her campaign to take him down with Sharon using pills.
The plot wasn’t easy and at times Sharon even considered a U-turn, particularly recently after she clashed with Ian’s mother Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth).
She had a brief change of heart after she realised how damaging it was, telling Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) she wanted to call it off.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

As with any soap, there was another twist in the tale and the poison plot was quickly back on again after Sharon and Phil spoke about their late son Denny (Bleu Landau).
Fans will remember how Sharon and Phil were left devastated when Denny died after drowning while getting stuck trapped on the sinking vessel during the boat party last year.
This is the reason Sharon has been poisoning Ian on EastEnders: revenge for Denny’s death.
By poisoning Ian, she is hoping to get away with murder but make Ian pay the ultimate price for taking her son’s life.
