'EastEnders' star Nina Wadia has promised that there will be "really dark" storylines ahead for her soap family.

Speaking on 'This Morning', the actress, who plays Zainab Masood, said of future storylines involving her married son, who is having an affair with a man.

Wadia said: "They've really done their research on this. It goes to a really dark place because that is what would happen - and has happened."

"From the research they've done, they've spoken to families who've had this conflict and you literally cut off all ties. It's like that person doesn't exist."
