Soap bosses also planning gay adoption plot


EastEnders characters Christian Clarke and Syed Masood are to get married in the soap’s first gay wedding.

Last week, actors John Partridge, 39, and Marc Elliott, 31, shot scenes in which Christian pops the question.

The emotional proposal will air on BBC1 next month and it’s thought viewers will see them having a civil ceremony in the summer. 

‘If everything goes ahead, Christian and Syed will be the biggest stars on the soap,’ a source tells the Daily Mirror.

Bosses are also said to be considering having the couple adopt using a surrogate mum if the wedding plot is well-received.
