Preeya Kalidas is returning to EastEnders – and is set to ruin her on-screen husband’s civil ­partnership plans.

Her character Amira Masood fled Walford in April after finding out partner Syed was in love with Christian Clarke (John Partridge).

Syed, played by Marc Elliott, wants to marry his gay lover – but Amira has no plans to make things easy.

A show insider said: “Amira left Walford a heartbroken woman. When she finds out Syed is planning to marry Christian she is furious.

“Amira is manipulative and her presence looks set to turn the lives of the Masoods upside down.

“The question is, has she moved on from her husband or will she do whatever she can to get him back? Only time will tell.”

Preeya, 31, who had left to focus on her music career, begins filming in the next few weeks. She will be seen on screen in late autumn.
