'EastEnders' star Himesh Patel has warned there is trouble ahead for the Masood family.
The 21-year-old actor revealed there will be more misery for his alter-ego Tamwar Masood, who was left badly injured in a fire started by his wife Afia's (Meryl Fernandes) father at Christmas, as there are still some "loose ends" to tie up about the incident.
He said: "There are so many loose ends to tie up, so we're still exploring it. But it does move on."
Tamwar still has scars on his body from the fire, and he is set to grow concerned when he discovers Afia looking at plastic surgery websites on the internet.
Speaking on 'This Morning', Himesh added: "He's a bit hurt. He thinks that his wife doesn't like the way he looks and she wants to change him. But I think she just wants him to feel better about himself, because she can see what it's doing to him."
But Himesh has previously said he hopes the couple don't split up following the fire because they love each other "very much".
He recently explained: "They love each other very much. But I think it'll be difficult and tense as they try to move forward. This problem has surfaced very early in their marriage, so it'll be interesting to see what happens next. Hopefully Tamwar and Afia can come out the other side stronger - but nothing is really guaranteed is it?
"I never want Tamwar and Afia to get divorced. From the moment they married, Meryl and I said we want them to be the couple who stays together."
