EastEnders star Heather Peace speaks out after Suki and Eve twist

EastEnders spoilers follow.

EastEnders star Heather Peace, who plays Eve Unwin, has opened up about the huge twist in her character's affair storyline.

Eve and Suki's affair was finally exposed in last night's (November 28) shocking episode, when villain Nish Panesar saw CCTV footage of his wife sharing a kiss with her lover in the Minute Mart.

In a heartfelt post on Instagram, Peace shared a collection of behind-the-scenes snaps with Suki actress Balvinder Sopal and revealed how much the story has meant to her.

"#Sukeve reveal day. The secret is out! Nish knows!" the caption began. "I love this story & the time & care that's been taken by all the team @bbceastenders. Suki's story has resonated with so many from what I've seen.

"The representation has meant a lot too through Eve presenting the way she does. So many thanks to the writers and producers for playing this story out in real time. It's been a precious thing, certainly for me, having not seen a love story like this when I was growing up. I feel blessed to have worked alongside so many beautiful actors too who also care about story telling."

Following the fallout of Nish's revelations, Suki is in for another major storyline over the festive period — as she takes centre stage alongside Kathy Beale, Sharon Watts, Denise Fox, Stacey Slater and Linda Carter in the soap's Christmas murder plot.

"The fact that EastEnders is matching Suki up with other members of the Walford community as part of 'The Six' is absolutely brilliant, and the fact they are all women is amazing," Sopal recently said of her character's important part in the anticipated episodes.

"It bumps up that sisterhood feeling, and it puts powerful women at the forefront of storytelling about connection, friendship and love," she said.

"I think it's really important to see strong bonds between these women where they can support and help each other through difficult times."

EastEnders airs on Mondays - Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer.
