EastEnders’ actors Davood Ghadami and James Bye are among tonight’s soap-studded cast to appear on Pointless Celebrities.
The pair go back a long way, having both joined the cast of the soap opera in 2014, co-starring alongside one another until earlier this year.
In April 2021, EastEnders’ fans were gutted as Davood announced he was leaving the show.
The news came after he had spent more than six years playing the role of beloved market trader Kush Kazemi, alongside James as Martin Fowler.
The pairs on-screen relationship during their time together on EastEnders’ had been turbulent, and fraught with drama.
But after Davood’s character was murdered by Gray Atkins for his exit from the show, James revealed he was going to really miss working with the ‘best mate he ever had’.

Revealing the pair’s long-standing Bromance, James gushed over his best friend in a heartwarming tribute, describing how ‘no one makes him laugh as hard’ as Davood.
Calling Davood “my best mate, my brother. Often lover,” James said: “Spending the last 6 and a bit years across the hall from you… watching…listening, but mainly watching…has been a pleasure!”
He expressed his relief that although it was time for his best mate “to fly” the two at least wouldn’t be too fair apart, joking that Holby City “would work nicely.”
“I know you are going to continue to share your warm heart and ‘unique charm’ over there!” said James.
He ended the tribute to Davood on a more serious note: “I’m going to miss you mate. It’s very rare we’re serious with each other but it has to be said – you are insanely talented and working with you was an honour!!
“Love you… ‘sometimes maaaaaaan’.
“In the words of the late great Kush Kazemi ‘You’re the best mate I ever had! MUSH forever!!!!”
Davood replied to the length post, saying it all with a simple: “My [heart emoji].”
And hoards of EastEnders fans were touched by the post, replying to say they were “gonna miss the Martin/Kush Bromance”.
“Awwww you guys!!” wrote one of James’ followers.
Another added: “You two have that brother bond, its amazing to see, Kush you have done a fantastic job playing that actor, good luck with Holby City yet I watch, looking forward to watching your role on it!”
However, it was recently revealed Davood’s Holby City role was to be shortlived, as it was announced earlier this month that the BBC have cancelled the show after 23 years on screen.
Davood told his 119k Instagram followers: “Gutted for the fans and the amazing people who work so hard on Holby.
“Please keep/start watching this awesome show before it’s inevitably explosive ending next year.”
