EastEnders exit as Suki Panesar makes plans to start a new life after rejection
EastEnders teaser trailer focuses on Kathy Beale
EastEnders’ Suki Panesar (played by Balvinder Sopal) could be making an exit from the BBC soap as the character makes a life-changing decision after being heartbroken by Eve Unwin (Heather Peace).
Suki and Eve have shared a secret love for each other for a long time, but when Suki’s son Vinny Panesar (Shiv Jalota) found out, he warned her she would lose him and the rest of the family if she leaves her controlling husband Nish Panesar (Navin Chowdhry).
Having lost two sons in the last few years, Suki ended things with a heartbroken Eve.
Recently, Nish’s treatment of Suki has worsened as he has threatened violence to force his wife to keep quiet about murderer Ravi Gulati (Aaron Thiara), even if it means their son Kheerat Panesar (Jaz Deol) remains in prison for a murder he didn’t commit.
Official spoilers from the soap suggest Suki will finally make a stand and try to leave Nish in upcoming episodes.

In scenes yet to air, Vinny worries as Suki shows signs of stress and exhaustion when Priya Nandra-Hart (Sophie Khan Levy) and Ravi row at the house.
Later, he discovers she never picked up her prescription for anti-depressants from the doctor.
Nish steps in to resolve a problem with Avani Nandra-Hart’s (Aaliyah James) passport, and a grateful Priya tells her daughter she will make sure he loves having them around.
However, when she passionately kisses him, Nish is horrified – especially when he realises Suki and Vinny are standing in the doorway.

Nish is appalled when Suki accuses him of enjoying the kiss and tells Priya to pack her bags.
Later at the Minute Mart, Suki is cut deeply to see Eve happy with her new lady, Tessa.
She convinces Nish to give Priya another chance so they can keep their granddaughter close, knowing that having lots of family around will mean she doesn’t have to be alone with him.
When Vinny privately questions Suki on being so forgiving, she lets rip about the depth of her unhappiness in her marriage and how much she hates Nish.
A devastated Vinny tells Suki that if she wants to be with Eve, he won’t stand in her way.
Nish sticks his nose into the Minute Mart business, enraging an increasingly desperate Suki.
Eve spots the argument and Suki asks if they can talk.
Suki reveals that Vinny has given his blessing to them being together, but Eve doesn’t want to go back to a closeted relationship now she’s got Tessa.
Later, Suki tells Vinny she’s going to leave Nish and start a new life.
Will she try to make a get-away from Walford before returning for the highly-anticipated Christmas episodes fans know she is going to be a part of?
EastEnders continues on Monday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
