It’s the opening day of ‘Masala Masood’ but a distracted Masood is more focused on seeing his granddaughter. At the café, Masood comes clean to Jane about what’s going on and with Roxy looking after his stall, the pair head to the address. When they arrive, Jane tries to convince Masood to talk to Shabnam first but just as they’re about to leave, he thinks he spots his granddaughter, Jade. Despite Jane’s pleas, Masood takes a picture of her but they drive off before Masood has a chance to say anything. Back in Walford, Masood opens up to Jane but when they are interrupted by Shabnam, he comes clean and shows her the photo of the girl. A raging Shabnam and Masood quickly come to blows and Shabnam storms off. Later on, Masood takes drastic action and gives Jade’s address to Shirley and tells her she’s alive.
