EastEnders: Fans upset with Habiba’s ‘underwhelming’ shock exit

Habiba gave Iqra an ultimatum

EastEnders fans were left upset with Habiba’s ‘underwhelming’ shock exit in last night’s episode (Thursday, October 22).

Over lockdown, Habiba found love with neighbour Jags Panesar and a couple of weeks ago, the pair announced their relationship to Jags mum Suki and siblings, Ash and Vinny.

However Suki wasn’t happy with this and turned Jags into the police for Martin’s assault – a crime that was committed by Jags’ brother, Vinny.

Habiba has been fighting for her boyfriend’s freedom. But he decided to take the blame for his brother’s crime and was given four years in prison.

Furious with the Panesar family, Habiba gave her sister Iqra an ultimatum – either she told her girlfriend, Ash, to move out, or she would.

However Iqra couldn’t bring herself to kick her girlfriend out and Habiba decided it was time for her to leave.

As Habiba went to get in her taxi, Iqra asked her what she was doing. Habiba told her sister she couldn’t watch her be with Ash, fearing she would hurt her.

I’m sorry but Habiba’s exit is so out of the blue.

Iqra refused to break up with Ash but begged her sister to stay. However Habiba told her Jags needed her more and left Albert Square.

But fans were upset with Habiba’s shock exit calling it ‘underwhelming’.
