The next chapter in the plot – which was crowned ‘Best Storyline’ at this years’ British Soap Awards – sees Misbah’s abuser, Ali Shahzad (Raji James) return to the village for the trial.
However, with the support of her family and new partner Zain (Jonas Khan), Misbah admits that she is ready to tell everyone what that man did to her.
The promo also teases a threatening time for the McQueen clan as Wendy (Jennifer Armour) – who is in cahoots with serial killer Silas – plots to steal Mercedes’ (Jennifer Metcalfe) son Bobby (Jayden Fox) from his dysfunctional family.
