EastEnders is reportedly set to introduce its first Muslim lesbian in the coming weeks, as Iqra Ahmed's secret text messages are revealed. 

A source told The Sun that the character will come out after Adam Bateman discovers her messages to other woman, but it remains to be seen whether her sexuality is accepted by her family.

This revelation comes nine years after devout Muslim Syed Masood faced being ostracised by his family when he fell in love with Christian Clarke.
