EastEnders spoilers follow.
An unexpected flirtation between Suki Panesar and Peter Beale has blossomed in EastEnders.
Peter has been harbouring secret romantic feelings for Suki’s daughter Ash, even though the doctor is in a long-term relationship with Iqra Ahmed (Priya Davdra).
In spite of Ash’s romantic entanglements, Peter has confided in her about his father Ian’s treachery without confessing how he truly feels about her. In Tuesday’s episode, another member of the Panesar family ended up turning his head.
Suki (Balvinder Sopal) broke up a party where Ash (Gurlaine Kaur Garcha) and Peter (Dayle Hudson) were enjoying themselves with Tiffany (Maisie Smith) and Keegan (Zack Morris).
After Peter had walked out, he realised he’d dropped his wallet and returned to find Suki rifling through it and holding up a condom.
“Failure to prepare is preparing to fail,” Peter boasted as Suki held up the condom.
The conversation then turned flirtatious as Suki griped about her egocentric daughter and the awful date she’d just had.
“I’m sitting here talking to you instead of lying under him. So, what does that tell you?” she complained.
Peter replied that he could see “exactly where Ash gets her looks from”… and “her mouth” too. When Suki asked if Peter “wanted to see how well” her mouth works, the scene cut away from them.
Is a fling really on the cards for Walford’s newest crime boss and Peter Beale? The episode later saw Iqra confide in Jean about cracks in her relationship with Ash, leaving some questions about their status too.
EastEnders will continue on Thursday (January 14) at 7.30pm on BBC One.
