But in tonight’s episode Ian managed to get out of the pub and realised just how sick he was.
And with Max Branning’s help he went to a doctor for toxicology tests to prove whether Sharon was poisoning him or not.
Meanwhile Sharon had an attack of conscience after Ian’s mum Kathy begged her to help.
Kathy told her: “He’s ill Sharon. He’s putting on a brave face but I can tell by his eyes.
“My boy needs help – that’s got to mean something to you of all people. Ian loves you, he always has.
“I almost lost him twice this last year – twice. I don’t know what I’d do if anything happens to him. Please Sharon help my son.”
And Kathy’s words got to Sharon – and she decided to call off her plan to kill Ian.
Looking at pictures of Denny, she called Phil and told him it was done with.
“Phil it’s me,” she said.
“Whatever Ian’s done, he’s still Kathy’s son. i can’t do this anymore – the plan’s off.”
However, no matter what Sharon has now decided – Ian had secretly visited the doctors to get proof that he is being poisoned.
Viewers were in shock at the twist.
One wrote: “Looks like Sharon “The Serpent” Watts reign of terror is almost over!”
A second said: “Truth could be soon out for Ian about Sharon poisoning him.”
Another added: “Clever chess moves from Sharon. Failsafe of getting revenge on both Ian and Phil if this goes awry, messaging that she’s ‘backing out’.”
