Fiona added: “She has been hurt before – she’s been through it, it’s not new to her.

“She will be heartbroken but we shouldn’t underestimate her. And she won’t take anything lying down – you might see a different side to her.

“You’ll have to wait and see but yeah, I can’t say too much. It’s definitely going to be different and unexpected. Priya is a strong woman now, whatever happens – it will be dramatic.”

Speaking about whether he thinks Al can get away with leading a double life, Michael Wildman said: “Yes, because that’s kind of what Chapman does.

“As things escalate, I think that’s where the game comes in for him and unfortunately that’s where he thrives.

“I don’t think he set out to be like that but as we get further into it that’s where he starts to buzz really and that’s why he continues.”
