With Davood busy with dance rehearsals over the next few weeks, fans are yet to find out whether Kush will make a full recovery. The 35-year-old, who has been partnered up with newcomer Nadiya Bychkova, previously hinted that his exit could be permanent. He recently told Digital Spy: "No, I won't be taking a break per se, but hopefully it'll be a bit quieter storyline-wise." He added: "Obviously plenty of EastEnders actors have done the show before. I'm hoping to follow in their footsteps, they've all done really well, they've set the bar really high, which can be a bit nervy for me."
