Preeya's emotional final scenes

EastEnders stars Preeya Kalidas and Marc Elliott have revealed how playing out Syed and Amira's emotional confrontation was even harder because they knew they were Preeya's final scenes.

The soap beauty exits Albert Square on Monday night after her character discovers her Muslim husband Syed is gay and has been having an affair with Christian Clarke, played by John Partridge.

Preeya told BBC Breakfast: "We were quite looking forward to this moment and we were both really excited about getting to play these scenes, which are really emotional and really quite traumatic and really hard for us when we were doing it."

Marc added: "Yeah 'cause obviously we knew that they were Preeya's final scenes as well because we knew that we she was going to be leaving the show."

The pair agreed they have both enjoyed filming the high-tension storyline with John.

Preeya said: "John is brilliant and it's been fantastic building up to this moment. And we've had lots of laughs on the way."

Marc agreed: "It looks very emotional and high-drama, but also we've been crying with laughter."

Preeya, who is leaving the show to pursue a music career, was mysterious about her character's exit, refusing to confirm Amira leaves without forgiving Syed.

She said: "My final scene is tonight [Monday] yes - I am off. She does leave, but it's who she leaves with, on what terms."
