Carmel Kazemi puts herself forward for the market inspector role

Carmel is nervous for her big interview, next week on EastEnders. 

Since Tamwar left Walford in April this year, the market has been without a boss, and the traders have certainly been taking advantage of this.

This week, viewers will see Carmel grow increasingly frustrated by the state of the market. She’s later encouraged by Masood to apply for the role of market inspector, and take charge of the market.

Next week, Carmel prepares for her big interview.

In the cafe, Mr Lister (the old market inspector, who viewers haven’t seen for years!) interviews a nervous Carmel about the role.

Will Carmel get the job, and will her words change her son’s feelings for her best friend?
