Elsewhere on the soap, Suki Panesar and Denise Fox have teamed up in the hope of Ravi Gulati facing justice, with the pair attempting to have him pay for the crime of murdering his father, Ranvir.

“It's such a complex relationship because Suki's connection with Ravi from day one is that he helped her cover up the murder,” she said. “Ravi saved her from going down, but Kheerat got caught in the crossfire.

“At this moment, the trust is broken, and I think she can't quite believe that he has done this so the deep betrayal really sticks in her stomach, and it is making her do things she might not want to do.”

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