The character has not been on the square for over a year but was back tonight
MASOOD made his return to EastEnders tonight in spectacular fashion as he walked in on Carmel in her lingerie and suspenders.
Carmel, played by 53-year-old Bonnie Langford, was dressed up to the nines waiting for Max to come over when her landlord surprised her through the back door.
It was the first time viewers had seen the much-loved character, played by Nitin Ganatra, in over a year after he left to go and live in Pakistan.
Fortunately Masood takes Carmel’s near nudity in his stride and after she wraps up, he sits down and tucks into the food meant for Max.
But he was the bearer of bad news and told her that the tenancy agreement on the house would soon be up – and he wasn’t planning on renewing it.
Those watching at home loved the scene not only because Masood was back but also because Carmel looked so amazing.
Discussing Masood’s return, one person wrote: “What a welcome @GanatraNitin ?Good to see you back #EastEnders.”
A second commented: “#EastEnders #Masood is baaack!!! Yes @GanatraNitin.”
While a third remarked: “Hahahahaha carmel ????? and masoods back!#EastEnders.”
