Eastenders Spoilers – Backstory Explained
Newer viewers might not know the backstory. So, it was explained to host Stacey Dooley. Wood explained that just before lockdown, Max signed over half the restaurant to Ian in order to hide the asset from Rainie Branning (Tanya Franks). Max and Rainie have finalized the divorce, so he needed a way to keep her from getting the money from the restaurant.
“Max half-owns the restaurant with Ian Beale, but I think, just before lockdown, you saw him sign it over to Ian because he’s trying to hide the money from Rainie. Because, obviously, the divorce has been finalized, so Ian offers to take on half of the business to prevent Rainie from getting half of the divorce money. Max thought it was a great idea at the minute.”
