    whoo, 1st to comment, this looks like a fun week!!

  • Comment number 2.

    Looks like an interesting week, lots of Yusef!! Huraay. And cant wait to see Shirley's reaction when she discovers phil and raine's secret!

  • Comment number 3.

    I'm honestly not surprised Masood punches Yusef, he totally has it coming. It looks good though, I can't wait for it all to be over though, the Masood storyline is getting really boring.

  • Comment number 4.

    I agree with pacman234 i dnt really like the masood family but everyone is different cant wait to see tanya nd max develop and the episodes of ronnie and jack going to miss ronnie though :( bt hopefully she will return later

  • Comment number 5.

    tony discipline who will be playing the character as tyler moon is going to be on set from 27th june 2011
    cant wait for the other "moon" to arrive who is matt lapinsaks playing as anthony moon
    looks like a good week
    but the massood storyline is getting boring also so i cant be bothered to watch soaps any more as they can help you with issues in real life and how to cope sometimes but some people just watch it for there whole life, i mean people who just watch it dont talk about it as much as live entaertainment.

    im not tryin to be harsh or anything but eatenders needs to come up with more exiting storylines cos they just do similar disasters after disaster.

    kulsuma : YaY Im 5th , WAIT THATS NOT GOOD

    why is the massood story line carrying on so long i hate it get rid of yeusf as he is ruining it poor tam has my sympathy xx

  • Comment number 7.

    What did Afia mean when she was telling Tam that he should be protecting her and making her happy and that's his only job??? His only job?? That's sexist. Imagine if Tam said to Afia that she should care for him and make him happy and that's her only job. People would say that is sexist.

    And Yusef - gross - he asked Tam if he wants to be a man who puts his wife's wishes first, that's the kind of man to welcome into the family! How about Afia putting her husband's wishes first then?

  • Comment number 8.

    whats the tune afia was dancing to on 20th june ?
    sound a bit like crazy in love by beyonce

  • Comment number 9.

    What was the music at the wedding tonight?

  • Comment number 10.

    I think the wedding went quite well but then Masood had to come in and ruin it. I can't believe Tanya and Max! Poor Greg and Vanessa, i think that they should get together :) Also, i knew that Carol and Eddie would end up kissing xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  • Comment number 11.

    Looks really interesting....cnt wait 2 c wat happens between carol nd eddie.
    i want 2 c wat masood does 2 yusef 4 lying!

  • Comment number 12.

    AWRHHHHH! feeling really sorry for Masood- he is the good guy and no one believe's him :( the downfull on us being the viewes.... we know the truth.

  • Comment number 13.

    i HATE YUSUF ! hes a creep ! LOVE Masood ! hes gonna have 2 play Yusuf at his own game ! GET SMART MASS U NEED TO KEEP IT CALM AND STRATEGIC !!

  • Comment number 14.

    me too,yusuf is a slime bag,and hopefully they'll all realise that soon. loved the dancing last nite,well done all. can't wait too see what happens next ...love it.

  • Comment number 15.

    can't wait for shirley to bosh raine...but she needs to bosh phil while she's at it..........he really has done it on her one to many times

  • Comment number 16.

    Some great comments on here! But how do you think Zainab will react now she knows about Yusef's true feelings?

  • Comment number 17.

    To be honest I do feel sorry for Masood. He was however, being a bit of an idiot recently i.e. gambling for Phil Mitchell, not insuring the Argee Bhaji, being tempted by Jane etc... but Yusef puts all that into perspective as relatively insignificant compared to what he is capable of. I think Zainab is addicted to drama in her life, don't know how she would cope without it!!

  • Comment number 18.

    Hey All Enders Addicts,

    First and foremost, what a warped portrayal of a Muslim family, please don't be influenced by the nonsensel!!! I'm Muslim, and come from a civil, educated, background, and follow Islam how it should be....

    Secondly, all the story lines are dragging on...we need to see something fresh!

    and finally, I love Cat & Alfie, they spice up the soap.

    I also watched E20, the new parts need to start, refreshing to watch!!!

  • Comment number 19.

    I agree with all who hate Yusuf and love Masood, however I do believe this story line has dragged out far to0 long. It’s time for all to come to light.

  • Comment number 20.

    I think it was very wrong of Afia to make Tam tell his father he is not welcome..
    I hope Yusif gets kicked out by Zanib and Denise sees him for what he really is, a lower than shark poo man. Hope the Masood story picks up now...Zanib must be made to grovel for what she has put Mass through...

  • Comment number 21.

    The week hasn't finished yet and I'm already dying to see today and tomorrow's episodes

  • Comment number 22.

    I agree !! Zainab should grovel and Afia needs 2 apologies !!! wen they find out Yusuf did everything 2 himself he should be disowned by them all aswell !! JANE was the only 1 that beleived Mass now shes gone....

  • Comment number 23.

    Loved this week's episodes to date and cant wait for tonights but so glad the storyline is coming to end as I agree with Pacman and a few others that the Masood / Yusef storyline gone on too long. So glad that Masood has become a man at last though and punched Yusef!!! About time.

  • Comment number 24.

    we have been watchin it its great i love the moves they pull love u AMIRR XX

  • Comment number 25.

    I just be happy to see the Thursday episode but the useless new iPlayer doesn`t have a download button. They always delay downloading EE on iPlayer. It`s about time someone senior at EE spoke to the iPlayer people about sorting this out. I never have this problem with other programmes dowloading on iPlayer.
    BTW I love The Masoods! (apart from Afia as I presume she`s a Masood now)

  • Comment number 26.

    Haha glad you liked it nishax1

    Watch out for a special treat this afternoon!!

  • Comment number 27.

    I would just like to comment on the general story line concerning Syeed and Christian. I am white English and my boyfriend is Pakistani. He is not out to his family or friends. The story line is very realistic and true to life for those facing such issues of being gay in a Muslim culture. Seeing such a story line helps deal with these pressures and also helps gives confidence to those gay guys who happen to be from a Muslim background. Keep it running. It can help educate people as well.

  • Comment number 28.

    love eastenders but to b honest im gettin a bit board with the storylines at the min last night was good a bit of action was great so glad there was a punch like to see a bit more...

  • Comment number 29.

    yusef is some evil man and i hope they all find out about this man and musood can finaly be with his wife an dfamily jheeeeeezzz

  • Comment number 30.

    Make sure you catch the UNCUT Mehndi dance from Tuesday's episode available to watch here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/eastenders/2011/06/mehndi-dance-uncut.shtml

  • Comment number 31.

    Afia had been out of order telling Tam to stop his dad from coming to the Mendhi - she said she';s scared of him but did she think Masod was going to beat her or her dad up there? Seriously!? Yes she should apologise to Tam and Masod. I know he ended up punching Yusef but that was only after Afia's aunt said he and Zainab were lovers! Now Zainab knows how it feels when someone says in public that you are having an affair. I agree with whoever said she should grovel to get Masod back!

    @EastendersMegaFan2011 - you don't have to punch someone to be a man. What is this sexist rubbish where you have to be violent to show that you are a man?

    Greg and Vanessa shouldn't get together - he's too good looking and young for her! lol Plus not really each other's type are they.

  • Comment number 32.

    cant wait to see what happens between Tanya and max tonight, i dont like the masoods they get boring after a while

  • Comment number 33.

    how come mr masood can afford to stay at the B&B i thought the family were in constant debt! and its about time the story line came to a head getting boring now!

  • Comment number 34.

    i am mad at Yuusef! I am sorry i know it just a scenario but while i am watching i get in it and feel like it's real and get angry with him. He is stupid, selfish, horrible all you want. Shame on him.
    If i were Masuud i would smash his face in ince the beggining, Masud is a coward...

  • Comment number 35.

    I have been a fan of EE for 20 years in the UK and here in the USA(thanks to Dish Network) but have an issue with the way you continue to portray Whitney. Every story line involves her with people, especially men, who claim they love her and she is naive enough to fall for anyone and anything. Shona is a great little actress but please let her grow up before we have to see the same story again. Perhaps she could have an epiphany and become a very powerful female character. I realize she is still young, but wanted to throw my opinion in.

  • Comment number 36.

    Refering to Tony's comments - you are absolutely right! It is extremely beneficial to learn and understand some of the issues dealt with in the soaps like Eastenders and i applaud that BBC courageously continues to air a great deal of social issues bringing awareness in return.

    Refering to Kohinoor's comments - whatever story the Masood family portrays in the soap , i view them as an Asian family and not as a Muslim family in particular. And most of the times,their portrayal as an Asian family are very,very realistic. Im truly aware this is just a soap , a drama in the TV....anything beneficial to understand and learn from their trials and tribulations the family faces i take them in and the rest , if they are not essential , i just leave them out.....Moral of the story Kohinoor - just chill ...It's only a soap...no sane person will assume like you did about Muslim families in general though i do know that every families in real life are not so perfect all the time......

  • Comment number 37.

    Have u heard of the up coming story line m it looks great , tanya is going to get ce

  • Comment number 38.

    This comment has been referred for further consideration. Explain.

  • Comment number 39.

    Think it is about time that the storyline with Yusef and Sainab gets over and done with - it is so utterly boring to watch! Makes me wanna stop watching the show... good one with Max and Tanya though.
