Zee jilted?

Rana kisses Kate on the eve of her wed­ding. Will she dump Zeedan and run off with a woman? Rana be­lieves throw­ing her­self into mar­riage will sup­press her feel­ings

TV Times - - Soaps -

It should be one of the hap­pi­est days of a girl’s life – making it of­fi­cial with the man she loves in front of fam­ily and friends, and in a gor­geous frock.

Ex­cept, for Rana Nazir, it’s all a lie as she strug­gles with her sex­u­al­ity and for­bid­den feel­ings for friend Kate Con­nor.

Hav­ing al­ready mar­ried in a Mus­lim cer­e­mony, Rana and Zee are reaf­firm­ing their love with a civil cer­e­mony this week. But Zee is un­aware his bride is plagued with doubt and only push­ing ahead hop­ing she can for­get about her at­trac­tion to Kate, who she kissed last month.

Af­ter the pair lock lips again, Rana tells Kate on the morn­ing of her wed­ding she’ll call it off if she wants them to be to­gether! ‘Rana is con­fused and try­ing to con­vince her­self the civil wed­ding is just a for­mal­ity,’ says Bhavna Lim­bachia, who plays her. ‘Kiss­ing Kate sends her into a deeper state of con­fu­sion, but she be­lieves throw­ing her­self fur­ther into mar­riage will sup­press these feel­ings.’

As he waits for Rana at the reg­is­ter of­fice, ner­vous Zeedan wor­ries this could be more than just tra­di­tional bride late­ness.

Mean­while, drunk Kate urges her not to marry Zee as she loves her! Who will Rana choose?

‘Rana does not want to la­bel her­self as gay or bi­sex­ual,’ says Bhavna. ‘The per­son she has fallen for just hap­pens to be a woman.

‘But she’s ner­vous about the re­ac­tion from her fam­ily be­cause of her back­ground – this is still a taboo sub­ject in the Asian com­mu­nity…’

Ner­vous: Zeedan waits with Rana’s brother, but will she show?

Made for each other? Does Rana re­ally want to be with Kate?
