When she arrived in EastEnders, she competed with Kim Fox for the cocktail job at The Prince Albert.

And while Kim has no hard feelings, she’s still going to find herself putting Mila in danger next week.

With Kim launching her new business venture The Foxcatcher – a matchmaking service – Mila has been drawn into it.

As Kim’s boasting of her romantic prowess, Iqra walks in, giving Kim the perfect opportunity to show off.

She insists on Iqra being a case study and talks Mila into appearing too.

But it will be clear to fans that Mila is full of dread about what’s happening.

EastEnders: Iqra gives Mila another chance

The three women are at Walford East with the journalist and the photographer from the paper.

It’s all going well until the photographer snaps a picture of Mila and sends her into a raging meltdown.

Her behaviour sees Iqra leave, and could kill off the feature altogether – which would be happy news for Mila.

Later, Kim talks Iqra into giving Mila a chance to explain.

Sharing a heart to heart, Mila reveals how her family’s religious beliefs and homophobia saw her flee home at a young age.

She even admits to changing her name and being so scared that she doesn’t want her family to find her.

However it also becomes clear she’s hiding something else – but what is it?
