But it looks like Manpreet’s secret will come exploding out next week as Priya and Jay fuss around a heartbroken Rishi.
Viewers will see a furious Rishi refuse to even look at Manpreet.
Later, at the Hide, Jai tries to console Rishi, but he insists there’s no way back for him and Manpreet now.
Will Manpreet have an explanation up her sleeve to win Rishi back?
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.”
Emile John, who plays Charles’ son Ethan, has revealed that his character considered Manpreet as his mother before she disappeared.
He said: “Ethan is aware of the connection between Charles and Manpreet.
“All the trauma and pain from not one absent mother but two will all come flooding back to him.
“He’s going to need to tell her exactly how he feels to relinquish that pain. He is going to need to say exactly how he feels.”
