EastEnders: will Shabnam and Kush’s wedding go ahead?

"It would be nice for them to have a few glimmers of hope before it all goes wrong again," says actress Rakhee Thakrar

A wedding day in Walford wouldn’t be complete without the threat of disaster hanging over proceedings. And Shabnam and Kush’s nuptials will prove to be no exception.


Already there’s the possibility that they’re getting married for the wrong reasons, what with Shabnam wanting to present a united front to the social workers as she fights to get custody of Jade.

Then there’s the fact that Shabnam is completely unaware of the fact that Kush was recently getting a bit too close to Stacey. Will that secret be exposed just as Kush is about to become a married man?

All that we can say is that – in the run-up to the big day – Kush will find himself put in an impossible situation. Just what will he decide to do?

Speaking recently to RadioTimes.com about the possibility of the truth coming out about Kush’s history with Stacey, actress Rakhee Thakrar said:

“It has to! Of course it does. But I don’t want it to! It’d be lovely for Shabnam and Kush to have some happy moments, which have so far been few and far between.

“At the moment, they’re trying to adjust to a new ‘normal’, but it’ll take a while for them to realise that life doesn’t go back to normal. But it would be nice for them to have a few glimmers of hope before it all goes wrong again.”
