Eastenders is set to shock viewers this Christmas with a B & B fire leading to the exit of manipulative GP Dr. Yusef Khan (Ace Bhatti). The blaze will occur later this year around Christmas time and is set to mark the end of the current Masood and Yusef plan which recently saw Zainab (Nina Wadia) overdosing on sleeping pills prescribed to her by Yusef.
According to the Daily Star Sunday, the fire is started deliberately and scenes will see a massive explosion occur with bosses at Elstree recently building a replica set to film the scenes. Scenes have seen Yusef attempt to control Zainab by encouraging her to return to Pakistan with her and the scenes at Christmas are set to see Zainab desperately trying to reach Masood as he's set to live in the B&B full time.
An Eastenders spokesperson predictably said: ''We do not comment on storylines as we don't want to spoil it for our viewers."
The scenes will air around Christmas.
