Where is Tamwar in EastEnders and is he coming back?

Nancy is back!

EastEnders character Nancy Carter returned to Walford last night (Tuesday, April 13), but fans are convinced that she has split from husband Tamwar.

In 2016, Nancy and Tamwar left London to go travelling. It was later revealed the couple had got married and settled down in New Zealand together.

However in last night’s episodes, Nancy came back five years after her exit, but she returned without Tamwar.

She told her dad Mick that Tamwar couldn’t get the time off work so it was just her back for a couple of weeks.

Nancy encouraged her dad to spend time with his other daughter, Frankie, as it was her birthday.

But as Mick went to re-join the party, Nancy made a phone call to Tamwar.

She told him there was nothing in the account and that she needed the money. But what for?

Fans think that Nancy and Tamwar could be splitting up.

Last year, Himesh ruled out returning to the soap.

Speaking to Observer Magazine he said: “There’s a thin line between being on a soap and being a celebrity.

“You often see people from EastEnders going to do I’m a Celebrity or Strictly – which is great if that’s what you want to do.

“But from going to a lot of these award ceremonies, it wasn’t somewhere I was ever going to enjoy myself.”

He added: “I’d been doing it since I was 16 and it was all I’d known as an adult. It was a leap of Faith.

“I remember on that last day I drove out the gates that last time, and I just thought: here we go, let’s see what happens.”
