Saira and Charles decided to get married. But because Saira was already married to Dennis, and had a daughter Aiesha with him, she didn’t turn up to her wedding with Charles.

Charles feared something happened to Saira and tried to find her. But after no luck locating her, Charles presumed she was dead.

Later he told Ethan that he ran into ‘Saira’, but Ethan was furious and decided to tell Rishi the truth about Manpreet’s past.

Ethan told Rishi about Manpreet and Charles affair and how she left him at the alter on their wedding day.
