Fans started to wonder if Priya (Sophie Khan Levy), the newcomer to EastEnders, was interested in Nish Panesar (Navin Chowdhry) not long after she arrived.
In later episodes, Priya kisses Nish in front of Suki (Balvinder Sopal) and Vinny (Shiv Jalota), proving that the theory is correct!
Priya is Ravi’s (Aaron Thiara) former girlfriend. She brought her daughter Avani (Aaliyah James), who is also Ravi’s kid, to Walford.
Priya was in the cafe trying to find a place for the two of them to stay while Ravi got to know Avani.
Nish located Priya and took a seat beside her. During their conversation, Priya expressed her desire for Ravi to resemble her, even though she is aware that Nish is also abusing and manipulating Suki.
Next, Vinny becomes concerned about Suki’s ongoing stress-related symptoms and becomes even more alarmed upon realizing that his mother has not picked up her prescription for antidepressants from the doctor.
As all of this is going on, Nish intervenes to help Avani with his passport, and Priya is appreciative, telling her daughter that she will make sure he enjoys their company.
Nish, however, is shocked when Priya gives him a passionate kiss in the kitchen—especially when he realizes Vinny and Suki are standing in the doorway!
Following the kiss, Suki tells Priya to pack her bags and accuses Nish of enjoying it, which horrifies Nish.
Later, Suki is deeply hurt to see Eve (Heather Peace) content with Tessa, her new partner, at the Minute Mart. Knowing that having a large family means Suki isn’t alone with him, she persuades Nish to give Priya another chance so they can maintain a close relationship with their granddaughter.
Suki reveals how unhappy she is in her marriage and how much she despises Nish when Vinny questions her about why she was so forgiving.
Though distraught, Vinny assures Suki that he won’t stand in her way if she wishes to be with Eve.
Is this the time that Suki finally lets go of Nish to live a happy life?
