Christian tells Zainab that Syed's gay! On his wedding day!!

When his secret love Syed is still intent on marrying his fiancé Amira, it seems that Christian Clarke goes on a mission to prevent the marriage ceremony going ahead.

And one of the first things he does is to tell Syed’s mum, Zainab, about their affair, but even though she’s shocked to the core, she still insists that Syed should go through with the wedding!

Marc Elliott who plays Syed told Inside Soap magazine, “Christian calls Syed and says he’s told Zainab everything.

“Syed’s forced to admit he’s been having an affair, and his mum’s furious”

Can’t say I’m surprised!

In the lead up to the dramatic wedding, Christian will reveal to Zainab that he and Syed have been seeing each other behind everyone’s backs for months, and as he recounts how their relationship began, Christian states that Syed is gay, prompting Zainab to slap him and throw him out of the house.

Meanwhile, at the wedding venue, everyone’s waiting for Zainab and Syed receives a call from Christian who admits that he’s told Zainab everything. Syed’s horrified by Christian’s actions and as Syed sees his mother arrive, Christian sets off for the ceremony…

Inside, Zainab confronts Syed about Christian’s claims and demands to know if he’s lying. As Zainab continues to insult Christian, Syed snaps and furiously shouts at her. As Syed’s stare meets his mothers, Syed admits that he’s gay and that he’s in love with Christian.

Syed suggests that they delay the wedding, but Zainab’s not convinced that it’s the right thing to do. She goes on to state that Syed should have tried harder with Amira. Devastated by his mother’s attitude towards him, Syed pleads with Zainab to understand and help his predicament. Zainab, however, can barely look her son in the eyes.

Later, in the ceremony hall, Syed sits with imam Ali as Qadim enters with Amira. Christian then enters the reception hall and a waiter ushers him upstairs to where the wedding’s being held…

Will he go through with it? We’ll let you know as soon as we do!
