EastEnders' Syed, Christian exits will be painful, say Masoods: Video

By and Amie Parker-Williams
EastEnders stars Nitin Ganatra, Nina Wadia and Phaldut Sharma have promised that the upcoming exit of Syed and Christian will be "particularly special".

It was announced last week that Marc Elliott and John Partridge are to leave the BBC soap, with their final appearances taking place in November.


Speaking to Digital Spy at the TV Choice Awards last night (September 10), the trio said that saying goodbye would be "very painful" for both themselves and the Masoods.

"Of course we're going to miss them, yeah," Ganatra said. "We've become such a big family unit anyway and to see the family split up like that it's going to be very painful.

"We all get along so well and we have a lot of fun together, so yes it's going to be sad to see them go."

The Masood's celebrate the fact that Syed and Christian have set a date for their wedding.

Sharma jested: "I've just arrived [as] the guys left, so I've taken it quite personal."

Confirming that Syed and Christian's exit storyline is currently being filmed, an emotional Wadia added: "There's happiness, there's sadness... it's a particularly special exit."

Ganatra also stated that autumn in EastEnders is "going to be pretty Masood-heavy" as Syed's dodgy dealings "lead to another crisis in the household".

"Who knows what's going to happen to the Argee Bhajee?" he joked. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
