Could this be EastEnders’s shortest-ever relationship? Mere weeks after finally admitting their love for one another, Denise and Kush will hit the rocks in next week’s episodes of the BBC1 soap. Just what has caused these relationship ructions?
Well, it seems that it’s Denise’s studies that become a source of friction – scenes to be shown on Tuesday 2 May see Kush grow increasingly frustrated that his girlfriend is spending so much time on her GCSE and finding a job, so he does his best to encourage her to spend the evening with him.
However, Kush later receives an invite from Carmel to attend a family dinner and believing that Denise would rather revise, ends up cancelling his plans with her. But little does he realise that Denise is also worried about the perilous state of her finances: as Kush tucks in at the Kazemis’, she’s forced to eat a budget meal.
Events look set to come to a head at the end of the week when Denise is forced to ask Kim to return a small amount of money she loaned her last year. Worried about her sister, Kim ends up talking to Kush, who resolves to get to the bottom of what’s going on.
Friday’s episode will then see Denise agreeing to let Kush cook her a meal. But when the subject of money comes up, the situation soon becomes heated. Will Denise admit the truth? Or is her shame set to ruin her relationship?
