It’s been on the cards for a while, but it looks like a romance between Nancy Carter and Tamwar Masood might actually happen when they share a kiss over a lunch date.
During EastEnders’ 30th anniversary week, viewers saw Nancy stopping Mick (Danny Dyer) from beating up his brother Dean Wicks (Matt Di Angelo) in the Queen Vic’s beer store. But when rapist Dean later disappeared, Nancy was worried that her dad killed his hated brother.
