Speaking about the twist, Kevin Mathurin – who plays Charles in the ITV soap – recently told Digital Spy: “Let’s just say that Charles and Manpreet do have a history. When Charles sees Manpreet, it’s like seeing a ghost and it’s very unexpected.
“Out of all the places in the country – all of the different parishes that Charles has been working in – he now finds this person who he hasn’t seen for 15 years.
“They’re both absolutely shocked. As far as Charles is concerned, Manpreet was dead.”
He continued: “Afterwards, Charles just wants an explanation for what has been going on and where Manpreet has been. He wants to know why Manpreet suddenly disappeared.
“There’s going to be some revelations. Let’s just say Manpreet isn’t exactly who Charles thought she was.
“He knows her as ‘Saira’, so for her to suddenly say that her real name is Manpreet, he wonders what other lies she has been telling him. There’s a lot of past to be dug up.”
