Gary Lucy will soon make his first appearance as city banker Danny, who immediately strikes up a bond with Syed when they meet at the Argee Bhajee.
Desperate for a way to solve his worsening financial problems, Syed (Marc Elliott) subsequently consults Danny on a number of occasions for his guidance and advice.
In a fortnight's time, however, things move further between the pair after they arrange to meet up at the R&R.
Although the main topic of discussion is initially just business, they go on to have a heart-to-heart - and Syed soon gets lost in the moment by kissing Danny. What does this mean for his relationship with Christian?
