Kiss is overdue
hey say men are from Mars and women from Venus, but Masood and Carmel seem to be in different solar systems.
Has a man ever been so blind to the signs? And how did Carmel forgive the daft postie for saying she was ‘too old’ for him? Sick of all the blind alleys and misunderstandings, Denise sets the pair up and they finally get it together.
Dee has an ulterior motive for playing matchmaker. Not sure what to do about her pregnancy, she uses Carmel and Mas as a distraction. Carmel wants to discuss her options, but Denise would rather not think about it and engineers things so that Carmel and Masood have a romantic dinner together.
Reveals Bonnie Langford, who
Tplays Carmel: ‘Neither of them knows it’s going to happen and they end up locked in a room. Carmel immediately asks Masood, ‘What are we going to do?’ She wants to be more than friends with benefits. They talk it through and end up kissing and a lot more besides.’
Next day, a chirpy Carmel tells Denise that Masood has hinted about shelving his travel plans in favour of a relationship with her.
Adds Bonnie: ‘It looks as if they’re going to live happily ever after, but yet again there’s another breakdown in communication.’
It’s a big week for Denise. Not only has she got her baby scan, she also has her first GCSE English Literature class. She’s unsure of herself, but the tutor gives her a boost of confidence. Buoyed, Denise asks him out for a drink, but decides to cancel when Carmel has a few too many after yet another misunderstanding with Mas.
Denise doesn’t want to make a song and dance over the baby scan, but Kim invites herself along. She’s got her own ideas about what her sister should do and shares them with a stunned Vincent.
At the hospital they bump into Whitney and Lee, who are also there for a scan and twig that Denise is pregnant. Does this mean her little secret will make it onto the front page of the Walford Gazette?
