Alya de­mands cash from Sharif to keep quiet about him and So­nia

Alya Nazir had some­thing of the school pre­fect about her when she first came to Weather­field, but it hasn’t taken long for her shiny halo to fall. First came that un­savoury busi­ness of los­ing her vir­gin­ity to Ja­son Grimshaw, and this week the Un­der­world upstart black­mails her own grandad in or­der to ad­vance her ca­reer.

The am­bi­tious glam­our­puss re­sorts to de­vi­ous mea­sures when Ai­dan tells her it would cost around £14k to bulk pro­duce her range of posh undies. Alya doesn’t have that kind of cash… but she knows a man who might. And when Sharif begs her to keep quiet about him sleep­ing with saucy So­nia, she de­cides to use the sit­u­a­tion to her ad­van­tage.

‘There are a few as­pects to her black­mail,’ ex­plains Sair Khan, who plays Alya. ‘One is that she’s fu­ri­ous with Sharif – he’s got the cash at his dis­posal be­cause he’s about to buy So­nia a flat, yet he won’t in­vest in her. Also, she wants to pun­ish him; she doesn’t want him to have his cake and eat it.’

Sharif feels the heat as Alya piles on the pres­sure and So­nia makes it clear that, re­gard­less of his grand­daugh­ter’s de­mands, she still ex­pects him to get her a place to live. Now need­ing to get his hands on a su­per-sized amount of cash, he’s at a loss as to what to do. Then he has an idea…

Alya’s ap­peased as he later hands her a cheque – but where has the money come from? And how will she re­act when she inevitably dis­cov­ers that Sharif ’s pas­sion­ate en­counter with So­nia was more than just a one-off ?
