Fans have taken to social media to share their shock after last night's EastEnders saw Denise and Kush decide to end their relationship...

EastEnders fans have been left confused after Kush Kazemi and Denise Fox decided to end their relationship last night after having a heart-to-heart in the cafe.

The couple have become more estranged over the last few months, with both of them complaining about their relationship at New Year in The Vic.

Denise and Kush have called time on their romance

Back in December viewers saw Kush tell Mick Carter that Denise talks too much, while Denise could be seen across the other side of the bar telling Linda that Kush seemed to be be more interested in going to the gym and blending kale smoothies than spending time with her.

As Denise arrived back in the Square last night after a few weeks away, the pair seemed awkward with each other, especially when Kush bumped into his girlfriend, unaware she was even supposed to be coming home that day.

They arranged to have breakfast in the cafe, but as soon as Kush arrived it was clear that Denise had spent her time away to do some serious thinking about their relationship.

The pair have hit the rocks in recent weeks

Asking Kush if he was genuinely happy, Denise had clearly decided that things weren’t working between them, but Kush kept avoiding her questions about their romance.

Desperate to hold on to what they had, Kush suggested they have a break for a few weeks, but Denise sadly pointed out that they’d just spent time apart, and it hasn’t changed a thing.

But as the pair came to the sad realisation that their relationship was over, EastEnders fans were left confused that they were over all of a sudden…

Other fans were convinced that writers had plans for Kush to find himself a new girlfriend, while others were confused, thinking that the pair had split ages ago because of the little screen time the pair have been getting recently.

So with the couple now separated, where does this leave them both? Could a reunion be on the cards in the future, or is this one Walford romance that is over for good?

EastEnders airs Monday and Friday at 8pm and Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
