Preeya Kalidas has confessed that she felt emotional when she watched the aftermath of her character's departure from EastEnders.

The actress's alter ego Amira Masood bowed out of Walford earlier this year after discovering that husband Syed (Marc Elliott) had cheated on her with Christian Clarke (John Partridge).

Following Amira's departure, the Masoods faced more turmoil as Syed tried to commit suicide. Although his attempt was unsuccessful, family matriarch Zainab (Nina Wadia) later declared that she wished her son had died.

Speaking to Holy Soap about the shock scenes, Kalidas revealed: "I watched the aftermath of when Amira left because I had no idea what was going to happen. It was really upsetting. It was actually quite distressing. It was all very sad and everyone was down in the dumps.

"The moment that was really upsetting was when Zainab told Syed she would rather he died than being gay. That was so heartbreaking."

Kalidas is now pursuing a pop career and will release debut single 'Shimmy' on July 26. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
