Dean discovers his daughter is alive and well

It’s a night of revelations in Albert Square as Dean shares some shocking truths with Shirley.  

Viewers know that Masood (Nitin Ganatra) and Shirley (Linda Henry) believe that they have found the little girl that Shabnam (Rakhee Thakar) lied about when she told them that the child died shortly after she was born seven years ago.  After Dean (Matt Di Angelo) sees a questionable conversation between Buster (Karl Howman) and Masood, he decides to confront his dad about what’s going on.

Eventually, Buster realises he has no choice but to tell Dean the truth—that his daughter is very much alive and well!

He gives Dean the foster home address, and Dean immediately vows to go and see his daughter; but first heads to the engagement party to confront Shabnam- putting an end to the celebrations.

Shirley confides in Buster about her fears and later and, later, Dean breaks down in Buster’s arms.  Can the three of them remain united in spite of everything that has happened?

EastEnders airs these scenes Monday, 15th June at 8pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
