Later in the week, Kheerat had second thoughts about lying to Ben and came clean about his relationship with Sharon – before ending things.
He then went home to make things right with his mum Suki – but it was too late.
“Mum, I know you’re angry with me and I’m sorry for the way I talked to you – it was disrespectful,” he says.
“That thing with Sharon is over now, because there is nothing in this world more important to me than this family and I know you feel the same.

“So can we just put it behind us and move on? We need to stick together for Jags, for Habiba whatever you think of her – and their son.”
But it was revealed how Suki was sitting sobbing in the dark – and not simply ignoring her son.
She said: “The prison chaplain called me ten minutes ago. Your brother was attacked in his cell. He’s dead. Jags is dead.”
Fans are in tears over the scenes.
