Gay Muslim story for EastEnders
EastEnders is to tackle a storyline which will feature a Muslim man embarking upon a gay affair.
Newcomer Syed Masood, played by Marc Elliott, will fall for openly gay man Christian Clarke (John Partridge) and the pair will share an on-screen kiss.
The plot is expected to hit TV screens from next month.
"I think EastEnders would be doing the programme a disservice if they didn't give a voice to various communities," Elliot told the BBC Asian Network.
