Next week Shabnam will decide she wants her daughter back. Shabnam gave up Jade years ago after she fell pregnant following a one night stand with Dean Wicks.
Kush and Shabnam are trying to rebuild their lives after the loss of their baby. Shabnam assures Kush that her change of heart is nothing to do with her grief but Kush finds it hard to believe.
After a difficult moment with Stacey, Shabnam decides to dismantle Zaair's cot, but later spots Jade arriving at the Carters'.
After ignoring everything Kush has said to her, Shabnam approaches the social worker and explains that she wants Jade back and to live with her.
EastEnders airs these scenes on Thursday, October 8 at 7.30pm on BBC One.
