ALYA NAZIR makes the shocking decision to lie to her family and Stu Carpenter about Stu’s appeal.
The former homeless man accepted defeat after failing to prove his innocence for a murder he didn’t commit.
But Alya is determined to prove Stu’s innocence – even if it means going behind his back.
Stu ordered Alya to inform solicitor Dee-Dee that he wants to call off the appeal.
However, when she meets her, Dee-Dee sounded like she had made a breakthrough but needs DNA from Stu’s daughter Bridget.
Alya lies to Dee-Dee by confirming that Stu still wants to proceed.
Alya attempted to get the DNA sample when Bridget and Eliza paid a visit to No. 6 and stayed round for tea.
Zeedan caught Alya stealing Bridget’s lipstick and takes it from her as Stu no longer want to pursue his case.
As he called off the appeal, his ex-wife, daughter and granddaughter will be able to visit him more.
Alya managed to steal a mug with Bridget’s DNA on it for testing.
If it proves the fingerprints match the one on the bag Stu will be found innocent.
But how will Stu react when he finds out Alya is still going through with the appeal and stole DNA?
