EastEnders baddie Nish Panesar returned to Walford this week bearing bad news. The businessman left the Square earlier this year after his family turned on him with son Ravi throwing him out of their family home.

On Monday (May 27), Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal) and her partner Eve Unwin (Heather Peace) were left rattled when Nish (Navin Chowdhry) turned up on the doorstep of No. 41, saying that the solicitor had sent both copies of their final order divorce paperwork to him.

The Panesars changed the locks on the front door so Nish couldn't gain access, but he manipulated Avani into letting him inside. Suki, Eve, Ravi Gulati (Aaron Thiara), and Vinny Panesar (Shiv Jalota) were very hostile as Nish started talking, but he soon silenced them when he told them he was dying.

On Tuesday (May 28), the family accused Nish of lying and kicked him out as he insisted he is telling the truth. Nish found Priya Nandra-Hart (Sophie Khan Levy) and tried to worm his way around her, but Ravi intervened and warned him to stay away from his family.

Nish eventually caught up with his grandson Nugget (Juhaim Rasul Choudhury) at McKlunky’s and begged him to hear him out. Ravi spotted the pair and in a moment of rage, he shoved Nish, who fell to the floor clutching his chest. He was rushed to hospital where his fate was confirmed.

Now, EastEnders fans are begging soap bosses to not kill Nish off as despite hid bad nature, they love his drama. Taking to X, one person wrote: "I'm sad that Nish is going to die tbh. He’s a great character and I want more of him on my screen lol. #Eastenders haven’t had a good villain like him in ages.."

A second said: "Why do I feel bad for Nish #EastEnders", while a third chimed in with: "#EastEnders Who's gonna give Nish the transplant..."

"Nish makes me giggle so bad, I hope he’s not dying for real I want him to stick around", added one EastEnders fan. "Nish is back...& back with a bang. Navin Chowdhry is a brilliant Actor, so glad he's back. Can't kill off Nish, hope there will be a twist #EastEnders", demanded another.
