'EastEnders' John Partridge: 'Christian, Syed will have new story'

By
EastEnders star John Partridge has promised that his character Christian Clarke and partner Syed Masood will return to the forefront of the soap in the next few months.

Christian and Syed (Marc Elliott) have had quieter times in Walford since their latest storyline with Amira Shah (Preeya Kalidas) concluded in March.

Partridge told Loose Women today (April 25): "I think it's good to rest a character now and then, because on a continuing drama or a soap, people do get sick of seeing you four nights a week.

"They sort of don't want to listen to your story anymore. So I think when you've had a really big story like Marc and I have both had, it's good to take a little bit of downtime to step away from that, because the audience do get fed up of seeing you.

"But, that being said, we have had a rest and we will be coming back with something in the coming months."

Asked whether he is sticking with EastEnders, the actor replied: "I'm there for the foreseeable future, yes. And as I say, we do have a new story coming."

Viewers saw Christian finally bury the hatchet with Syed's mother Zainab (Nina Wadia) last month.
