In recent weeks we have seen Shabnam’s efforts to apply for the residency application to get her daughter Jade back, and it seems that a rushed wedding to Kush is also part of that plan.
In scenes to air next Friday, the wedding may actually take place despite Kush’s recent feelings of hesitation.
Family gathers to celebrate the happy couple while Nancy comes to grips with the fact that she will have to wear traditional dress to the wedding as Tamwar looks on.

Rakhee has said that Shabnam still has tough times to come – but also hinted that she and Kush would be able to work things out.
She said: “You’ll have to wait and see, but what I can say is their relationship will continue to be tested. But they’re a special couple. They fall apart and then they get back together, they’re like magnets. So we’ll see them clashing, but ultimately they’re still together.”
EastEnders airs these scenes 6 November on BBC One and BBC One HD
