Emmerdale fans have been left confused over "missing" prison guard Ian after murderer Meena Jutla's dramatic court trial.
Only recently, Meena was left furious to discover that the jury had found her guilty for the murders of Ben Tucker, Andrea Tate and Leanna Cavanagh.
Meanwhile Carol Butler, whose sister Nadine was murdered by Meena years ago, sought justice for her sibling as she decided to get revenge by stabbing the nurse.
After pretending to have collapsed, Meena then took Manpreet hostage where she attempted to escape and revealed that she had killed their father.
As they entered a courtyard, they had just one more door to go through when Meena realised that Ian, who she had asked to create an escape route and had been flirting with, had let her down as he failed to open the last door.

Frustrated, Meena declared: "No, oh Ian! You had one job, I asked him to make sure both doors were unlocked. Why do all men in my life let me down?!"
It ended with the police officers catching Meena as they dragged her back into the courtroom and she screamed: "No, this is not how it ends!"
While on Monday's episode, Meena was sentenced to a minimum of 75 years in prison, with the judge adding: "You will remain in custody for the rest of your life."
Soap watchers were left confused over Ian's whereabouts as he was last seen during Thursday's dramatic hostage episode while even Meena herself asked for him on Friday's episode.
Taking to Twitter, one person said: "Where did Ian the prison officer go? Was he not in court for the hostage siege? #Emmerdale #Meena @emmerdale."
A different account wrote: "Wonder what happened to Ian at the prison #Emmerdale."
