Chryed: The dilemmas keep on coming...

Nickie | 14:38 UK time, Thursday, 22 July 2010

THAT'S IT. We've held our counsel on this subject LONG ENOUGH. All week, the vote on the homepage has been asking 'Who would be your ideal flatmate - Christian or Syed'. The results have been pretty conclusive, but we need to know MORE.

So tell us - who's your ideal flatmate and WHY?

In the illustrative photograph below, you'll note that you (as played by Tamwar) are sitting with both Christian and Syed, however, you can't have em both! So make up your mind and explain yourself... NOW

You (aka Tamwar), Christian and Syed

    It was good to see Christian wanting to understand siaed's faith, it was sad to see how he was rejected at the mosque....(no one to help him)..because in real life, the mosque is open to any1 and every1, to welcome them with answers.

  • Comment number 2.

    Christian because he's better looking (Not as good as Peter Beale though!) and he seems more fun to be with! Would love to have a gay best friend! :D x

  • Comment number 3.

    As much as i'd love to live with them both, i'd have to pick Christian! Why? because he's a tidy freak, which is always a good thing! and he's just very loveable and fun in general :)

  • Comment number 4.

    I would love to have Syed has a flat-mate as he is just really cool and I think the character is interesting. I hope we see more of the storylines and I think it's not over yet...

  • Comment number 5.

    Christian would be more fun as he is more independant whereas Syed alway's need's to have someone - he would bring me down lol

  • Comment number 6.

    KL I LOVE SYED AND CHRISTIAN - I DON'T THINK I WANT MY FACE ON TAMWARS BODY - BUT PLZ LET SYED AND CHRISTIANS LOVE LAST FOREVER!!!!!

  • Comment number 7.

    Before anyone moans on I am being 'homophobic' blaa blaa,I am not, I simply dislike Syed. I find him a wimp and can be quite pathetic at times. Ok, it was nice to see him and christian get their happily ever after but its time to move on, the story is dragging.
    ANd I agree wit Patrick, its his house, he shud chuck all of them out- especially LUCAS! :@

  • Comment number 8.

    LMAO...! "You carnt have em both" LOOOL
    I want Syed pleasee hahaa he's sooo cuwwwte...! Although im more than happy to have neither aslong as this CHRYED HAPPINESS LASTS...! :P Now thats good reasoning for ya... :P Ahh I love BBC amazing xD Thankyouu for the reunion loving it (L) Xxxx

  • Comment number 9.

    No one is going to call you homophobic for not liking a character but I'm enjoying the storyline and don't think it's dragging.
    I agree that Patrick should chuck them all out but he should still be a grandfather to them. In real life most adults live on their own so I don't understand why EE has all/most of the families living together.
    Carol lives with her brother, Max. Bianca lives with her gran, Pat. Stacey lives with her uncle, Charlie and Peggy stays with her neice Roxy. There are many more which I can't be bothered listing.

    Bless Tamwar! I love him :)
    Christian definitely! He is totally georgous! (understatement) Although Syed isn't bad looking himself..... *faints*
    I'm in my element.

  • Comment number 11.

    cant i have both lol ive loved this week domestic chryed just brill and i love Tamwar for makin small steps in acceptin his brother. Hannah xx

  • Comment number 12.

    Syed; Funny, cute, I love his shirts and likes to dance whilst cooking. SYED! ;D

  • Comment number 13.

    yeah but Richard, I was just sayin tht to cover my tracks, people will report yu for nything on here ;p.

  • Comment number 14.

    My ideal housemate would be Christian. The reason why is that he can help you out with whatever problem you have got, give you cuddles, loveable, adorable, always putting his friends before himself. I think he would be a excellent flatmate for me because I am a messy person and he is a tidy person.

  • Comment number 15.

    Syed..! My fave character.. :D ..X

  • Comment number 16.

    This is a tough one! I absolutely ADORE them both but for different reasons. They are the most amazing couple in soap land and long may we continue to see this unique and beautiful love story explored in the show. The black holes without them certainly take away alot of my viewing pleasure. They are a wonderful breath of fresh air.

    As for who i would want to flat share with?? As much as i love Sy for his sweet adorableness, i think it would have to be Christian. He is totally hot, an amazingly loyal friend, kind, compassionate and a right giggle. He would cheer me up after a long hard day and be a brilliant (and very buff) shoulder to cry on. I would feel so safe and loved and protected with him.

    Please EE give us more Chryed!!!!!! There is loads more you can do with these characters. The whole acceptance thing for Zainab and Mas still to be explored, civil partnerships, adopting kids, Sy getting comfortable in the gay world etc etc. Am loving this storyline sooooo much!

  • Comment number 17.

    I am LOVING this storyline. I'm so glad it's a happy ending for them both :) Hopefully it stays that way!

    As for Christian OR Syed as a flatmate? I don't even need a second to think about that as obviously it would be Syed. He is so adorable and really funny, and he still has fun but he's not so in your face as Christian is, Christian would be too loud and outgoing for me. oh AND he cooks, he's a "domestic goddess" :)

  • Comment number 18.

    Jess_Chryed_Luvaa - very charitible - sacrificing your own happiness for that of others. Lovely!

    Hannah - Ha! Ever get the feeling that a storyline's been written specifically for you :)

    A few people mentioned Christian's tidiness as a perk. I definitely need someone to tidy up after me. As long as he didn't get fed up with me never getting round to doing the washing up... I quite fancy some of Syed's home cooking though (like Jemmarshmallow said). Hmmm *racks brains*

  • Comment number 19.

    I lov them both but theres no question. It would have to be Syed everytime. You never know what your going to get with him and thats existing.

    Hope thay both have a happy ending! :-)

  • Comment number 20.

    tamwar there

  • Comment number 21.

    eastenders rule

  • Comment number 22.

    If I can't have them both, then it would have to be Christian because hes fit, loyal, sensitive, loveable and fun, he also knows what he wants and who he is, (but hes a bit loud). Syeds lovely but hes a bit too quiet and needs to be a bit more assertive...

  • Comment number 23.

    I'd have christian cus he's funny and cuteeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

  • Comment number 24.

    i would have christian for my house mate because i would get fashion advice of him and we would have a laugh x

  • Comment number 25.

    Aww that's not fair, making us choose. I love them both and am soooooo happy they're finally together. This week's episodes have been amazing, it's been wonderful to see them so happy at last :D

    But if I had to choose I'd go for Christian as I'm a total fangirl of his, plus I'm chronically messy so he could tidy up after me. If I lived with Syed the flat would look like a bombsite. I wouldn't mind sharing with either of them though, but they might have difficulty getting rid of me when they wanted some "alone time" ;D

  • Comment number 26.

    syed he is funnier

  • Comment number 27.

    i would like to leave with both of them, they are such great actors i cant choose between them , but if i did, syed, would have to win, xx chrsitan has roxy.

  • Comment number 28.

    i would prefer to live with syed because he is a bit messy like me and he is nicer looking in my opinion although christian is musclier and may tidy up after me!

  • Comment number 29.

    I would live with Christian because he is fun, nice and fit, I would love him as a friend/flatmate.
    It would be the best time ever!

  • Comment number 30.

    I think it would probably have to be Christian for me because Syed can be quite prickly!!

  • Comment number 31.

    Syed, the hair, those eyes and his voice ! Best housemate by far but really I just want it to be the two boys together forever . Love live Chryed !

  • Comment number 32.

    I wish I could pick Tamwar! I love love love himmm

    But out of Christian and Syed? It has got to be Christian, he seems more fun. Although, so far, we have only really seen Syed experiencing a frustrating and confusing time of his life where he has not been totally true to himself - so maybe that's why? I'm sure he'll cheer up and become happier with a little help from the lovely Christian, and especially when (or if?) his community and family accept and embrace him :)



    marry me, tamwar??

  • Comment number 33.

    Please do not undermine the intelligence of your audience, everyone knew that Denise was not dead and was a captive of Lucas. Please be more original and reprectful to viewers.

  • Comment number 34.

    Can I have both? Why do we have to choose? Surely that would mean splitting them up...and that would be just wrong!
    ...but then I feel they need some space so not sure I'd want to live with both of them...gooseberry?!
    Have voted for Christian, he's been my favourite character since he arrived...but I do love Syed so voting against him made me feel dirty! lol

  • Comment number 35.

    syed - because he's gorgeous. simple.

  • Comment number 36.

    I love the people who run this blog.. such obvious Chryedians :D

    Anyways, HARD question!!

    I'm voting Christian because I actually poll voted Syed :p So now I can feel less guilty!

    Christian - He'll be a laugh to be around, hilarious, can drag me out of bed to go jogging with him, I won't mind him coming out of the shower in only a towel oh and his boyfriend is ACE :D

    Good enough? :p
    xxx

  • Comment number 37.

    Syed anyday

  • Comment number 38.

    I think it was quite sad when Christian went to the mosque because he wanted to show syed he cared and wanted to be with him but he got turned away.
    I'd choose christian he would care and he would be a laugh.

  • Comment number 39.

    Defo Christian! Syed is just so, weird!

  • Comment number 40.

    id choose christian even though thyere both weird

  • Comment number 41.

    I'd rather live with christian if i had the choice. Seems what you see is what you get with him. Loving that they are a couple. Hope it won't come too a nasty end but what about the baby???? wasn't amira preggers? More scandle love it

  • Comment number 42.

    If I had to choose it would be Syed, because he had the most difficult time of the both of them en furthermore because he is the most beautifull of the two.

  • Comment number 43.

    Definitely Christian!
    A)HOTTER!
    B)FUNNIER!
    C)FITTER!
    D)PROUD OF BEING GAY!
    E)HES MY FAVORITE CHARACTER!
    I would love to have a gay best friend! I'm so happy that Syed is finally with him! I hated Syed for making Christian suffer like that. Christian all the way!

  • Comment number 44.

    definitely christian,
    funny, smart, interesting and he ACTUALLY SMILES!!!!

  • Comment number 45.

    i love them both but i think i'd have to say Christian! He keeps his pad so tidy, and i'm very messy so maybehewould clean up for me :P x

  • Comment number 46.

    I'll take Christian! As someone already said, he's more independent. I couldn't cope with having to help and reassure Syed all the time. He is smoking hot, but Christian seems like a sweet guy, and a great laugh.. I would love to live together with a gay, they're too cute.

  • Comment number 47.

    I would like to live with Christian. He is tidy and clean!!

  • Comment number 48.

    Christian it has to be him. He'd look after me, tidy up after me and more importantly make me laugh. You need a sense of humour in a good relationship.

  • Comment number 49.

    that's a hard one, there both hot!!.. i think sied..

  • Comment number 50.

  • Comment number 54.

    I'dd Piick Syedd :) It'll Be Great Too Have A Gay Best Mate Ennitt ;)

  • Comment number 55.

    This comment was removed because the moderators found it broke the house rules. Explain.

  • Comment number 56.

    To Nadedan - Syed's younger brother is called Tamwar and yes I would love to see more of Chryed, but not every single show, I think the actors need a holiday at some point. Someone made a suggestion of a spin-off show starring Christian and Syed, now thats something I would love to see....

  • Comment number 57.

    I'd have Syed as a flatmate, I like the fact that he is 'religious' that is something we would have in common. I like they way he cares about his family and wants to please them. I also think he is less 'stereotypically gay' I suppose Christian is less stereotypically gay these days too though.

  • Comment number 58.

    defo christian hes clean with himself and his home and a credit to his mother, syed cant even be bothered to shave or comb his air hate to think wat his personal hygenes like urrr shudder to think, christian is also lovely and could do soooo much better, think hed make a great housemate he also has true style

  • Comment number 59.

    I'll have Syed, please. OK, clearly Christian would be tidier. And he does seem to take a lot of showers. But his taste in art is terrible. And with Syed, well, I'd get to watch him dancing to J-Lo and throwing cooking ingredients all over the place - possibly the cutest thing ever.

    Really, they don't need me in their way though - can't you see how happy they are? I love domestic Chryed.

  • Comment number 60.

    I really wish i could have them both!!! So hard to choose!

    I absolutely ADORE Syed, he's gorgeous,sweet,caring and everything. But i'd have to go for Christian..he's got a job, he tidies, he's up for a laugh, drinking, gorgeous personality etc..and have you seen his body??

    If i could have them both, i would. But seeing as you're forcing me to pick one it's Christian. (Sorry Syed!) lol

  • Comment number 61.

    Atleast Tamwar Not A Masood Who Kicked Him Out, Atleast He CARES For Syed

  • Comment number 62.

    I see that some people here are choosing based on looks. Wouldn't it be creepy for Sy or Christian if someone choose them as flatmate because they fancy them - I mean it's like they want to share a flat with Sy/Chris so they can ogle them!

  • Comment number 63.

    This is easy...syed - because he's gorgeous!!
