EastEnders’ Suki Panesar’s cancer lie threatened as Shirley Carter takes action

EastEnders newcomer Suki Panesar could be exposed by none other than Walford legends Jean Slater and Shirley Carter next week.

The character, who joined the BBC soap earlier this year, has lied to her loved ones that she is battling ovarian cancer – with the soap recently appearing to confirm she isn't sick at all.

In fact, after a conversation with Jean, who has been battling the same cancer since her diagnosis last year, she's been pretending to share the symptoms.

Jean has just been told her cancer is gone, after being diagnosed last summer.

She tragically lost her partner Daniel Cook on Thursday, whose own cancer was declared terminal recently.

But she's driven to find out the truth about Suki next week, as something doesn't add up.

Suki has been telling her kids Ash, Jags, Vinny and Kheerat that she is seriously ill, even pretending to suffer the same side effects of treatment as Jean.

The truth is she's been using everything Jean has told her to act as though she is ill – even claiming to have the same doctor.

But when Jean offers her Daniel's special bed to make her more comfortable, she grows concerned.

Suki struggles to get her story straight about her illness, leading to Stacey Fowler's mum vowing to find out what's going on.

She's not the only one though, with Shirley also growing suspicious after her own chat with the Panesar matriarch.

She confides in Jean about her theories, and her suspicions that Suki is hiding something.

This only sparks a row between her and a grieving Jean though, so she quickly apologises.

But knowing Shirley, will she let this go or will her digging lead to Suki being exposed?

It could lead to her daughter Ash learning the truth, with her only recently making up with her following her arrival.

EastEnders airs Mondays and Fridays at 8pm, and Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:30pm on BBC One.
