EastEnders offers heartbreaking first look as Carmel says goodbye to Shakil

EastEnders has released more pictures of Shakil Kazemi’s heartbreaking funeral as his family gather to say their final goodbyes.

Carmel’s son Shakil was tragically murdered after being stabbed in harrowing scenes back in May and he’ll be laid to rest in Friday’s (July 6) emotional scenes.

As the Kazemis prepare for the toughest day of their lives, Carmel sparks more concern when she goes missing in the morning.

Having decided to cancel the funeral plans altogether, Carmel is unable to cope when Kush insists that it goes ahead regardless and refuses to attend.

With the Walford residents already starting to arrive at the church, Kush and Denise face a race against time to find Carmel and persuade her to say goodbye to Shakil.

However, these pictures reveal that she does end up attending, but how will Carmel cope with the devastating ordeal of saying goodbye to her youngest son?

Shakil’s funeral episode will see EastEnders take a break from its traditional format to feature stories from real people speaking to the camera about their own experiences with knife crime.

EastEnders airs these scenes on Friday, July 6 at 9.30pm on BBC One.
