Carmel Kazemi (Bonnie Langford) is to celebrate her 50th birthday in the coming weeks, but not all her surprises will be welcome ones.
In the episode of EastEnders set to air on Thursday 23 June, Denise (Diane Parish) will be seen stepping in when Carmel’s family fail to give her the day she deserves.
But after organising a surprise bash at Beales, Denise will find herself confiding in Masood (Nitin Ganata) about relationships.
With Denise’s love life having been less than stellar in recent months – remember the one-night stand with Phil Mitchell? – it isn’t long before she and Masood are having a heart to heart.
But Denise gets more than she bargained for when Masood leans in for an impromptu kiss! And what’s more, they’re soon caught in the act by the birthday girl herself!
Just what will Carmel say when she’s greeted with the sight of her best mate getting close with her ex-lover?
