Family feuds have already marred the build-up to Tamwar and Afia’s wedding, but the couple’s world threatens to collapse after further shock revelations in EastEnders next week…
At the start of the week, a nervous Tamwar visits Syed to inform him that he is welcome to attend the wedding, but only on Yusef’s condition that he doesn’t discuss being gay or his adoption plans
Later, Afia opens up to Tamwar, admitting she’s scared of Masood and doesn’t want him at the wedding
Tamwar is moved by her pleas and agrees to tell his dad to stay away
The following day, as the wedding pre-celebrations begin, Yusef puts a comforting arm round Tamwar’s shoulder, a gesture witnessed by a disgusted Masood
The boys’ celebratory procession winds its way around the Square, with Fatboy, Syed, Christian and Darren all wearing traditional dress
Meanwhile, Afia is the centre of attention in the girls’ procession…
…with Jodie and Mercy clearly enjoying the day. But the smiles quickly vanish when Masood tries to halt the wedding, prompting Tamwar to reveal that he and Afia are already married!
As the girls’ celebrations end, Afia realises Tamwar has confessed and tries to explain herself to her father, as Tamwar looks on
As the recriminations fly, Yusef finally gives his consent to the marriage. But it’s clear Masood is not happy
Later, Yusef snatches a quiet moment with Zainab
As the pair chat, Yusef admits he wants them to be together again. Unbeknown to Yusef, however, his sister-in-law Shameem has overheard his confession and wrongly assumes the pair are having an affair!
Back at the celebrations, Shameem tells everyone about the ‘affair’, and a livid Masood launches an attack on Yusef
And the troubles don’t end there. A late arrival to the ceremony makes a further stunning revelation…
