Since returning to Weatherfield, Zeedan Nazir (Qasim Akhtar) has been a troubled soul, and now he's really under pressure, as his dodgy dealing gets discovered.
He's back having split with wife Mehnaz, because he had an affair. But that was only half the story, as he left owing £50,000 to his father-in-law Hashim.
Now Hashim's tracked him down, and unable to pay his debt, Zeedan's been blackmailed into laundering money through the family restaurant Speed Daal.
It's a nightmare situation for Zeedan, who knows that if his gran Yasmeen and sister Alya (Sair Khan) find out what he's after, Hashim won't be the only one giving him grief.
This week, after finding the bag of dodgy money he's been given, Ryan forces Zeedan to tell him the whole story.
Ryan begs his friend to go to the police, only for Alya to walk in during their row. Despite Zeedan begging him to keep quiet about what he knows, Ryan tells Alya what her brother's been up to and Zee’s horrified to later find feisty Alya confronting Hashim.
Then, after the Speed Daal van goes missing, Hashim makes a terrifying threat to Zeedan. It's not long before the family's restaurant is engulfed in flames. But is Zeedan to blame for the blaze or is somebody else the firestarter?
