Despite trying to get his happy ending with Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty), it looks like things are about to get worse for Kush.

What did Kush do in EastEnders?

Kush is currently facing a very uncertain future after he got involved in a robbery with the Mitchells last year.

During a car heist with Phil (Steve McFadden) and Ben (Max Bowden), Kush ended up giving the wrong security code and costing them valuable time.

Despite managing to escape arrest, Kush later handed himself in to the police.

Kush’s hearing has been looming over him and he will appear in court this week to find out his fate.

Actor Davood Ghadami announced he will be leaving EastEnders after seven years, so viewers are desperate to find out whether he ends up in prison or on the run.

He is facing years in prison after making a deal with the Mitchells to keep their names out of it, but will he have a change of heart?

It is also possible Kush will run away with Whitney so they can live their happily ever after, but a life on the run from the police and the Mitchells doesn’t seem appealing.

Kush could also decide to flee Walford on his own, leaving Whitney to deal with the consequences at home.

Whitney actress Shona has since hinted at what could happen over the next few days, teasing: “Who’s to say Whitney and Kush aren’t going to live happily ever after together away from Walford?

“This could very well be her fairytale ending.”
