Masood Ahmed is to begin his search for his granddaughter, in scenes to air next week on BBC One.
Viewers will know that Dean Wicks and Shabnam Masood had a one-night-stand many years ago, resulting in the birth of baby Roya (who is now named Jade).
When Shabnam’s secret was revealed last week, viewers saw Masood enquiring about the visiting restrictions for Jade, behind his daughters back.
Masood makes a visit to Shirley and lets her know that her granddaughter is alive and well, before handing her a slip of paper with further information on Jade.
A shocked Shirley delivers the surprising news to Buster – he is a grandfather.
Masood decides to try and track down Jade and believes he’s struck gold.
With Jane in the car to accompany him, Masood takes a picture of the girl he believes to be Jade.
Back at 41 Albert Square, Masood becomes desperate for Shabnam to (at least) look at the picture and soon finds himself forcing his daughter to look at the picture of her potential daughter.
Moments later, Masood texts Shirley an image of the girl.
EastEnders airs these scenes in two action packed visits to Albert Square on Thursday the 11th June at 7.30pm and Friday the 12th June at 8pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
