Ultimately all Mandy wanted was a roof over her head and food in her belly... and clothes, shoes, bling, cars, a house etc etc. OK, she wanted a lot. And she wasn't prepared to earn any of them. Now we ain't saying she was a gold digger...
Actually, that's exactly what we're saying. Mandy was engaged several times, but no man got a ring on her finger.
Ian Beale joined the queue in 2012 by proposing. What a coincidence that Mandy would fall for one of the Square's most bankable residents!
Despite Ian's best efforts, he never got her to the altar. Mandy wanted more from life than to be the fifth Mrs Beale. She left Ian a broken man.
