Bad advice busts Beale.

The insolvency chaps over at R3 have had a busy time recently. Not only have they been dealing with the normal round of events but they’ve also been advising the BBC on the bankruptcy of Eastenders character Ian Beale.

Now as all you soap viewers will know Ian’s property venture went belly up and he lost his home and furniture when the bailiffs came round.

But it might not have been like that as R3 had proposed to script writers that the beleaguered Beal go through a ‘voluntary arrangement’.

But no, Auntie couldn’t have that, they needed drama so Ian and the kids lost everything in a full-blown bankruptcy. So, if you’re in difficulty don’t take advice from the Beeb, they’re just looking for a good story.
