But why does he have so much money?
Yasmeen excitedly tells Alya that Zeedan is coming to visit and Elaine calls to celebrate her birthday.
When the food delivery is late, Elaine tries to placate the diners as a stressed Alya juggles a call with the delivery driver and another from the bank. The delivery finally arrives but Alya’s relief turns to horror when a customer points at a tarantula crawling across a table, which has escaped from a boy’s rucksack.
As the diners flee, Alya tries to stay calm as the boy searches for his pet and with the spider finally caught, a tearful Alya tells Elaine that Yasmeen has somehow managed to empty their bank account.
Later, Alya is horrified to learn that the call she took earlier wasn’t from the bank, but from a fraudster and she unwittingly allowed them to clear out the account, not Yasmeen.
In desperation, Alya leaves a voicemail for Zeedan telling him how she’s been scammed out of thousands and doesn’t know what to do.
When Zeedan arrives at Speed Daal, Alya is forced to explain her mistake to Yasmeen and Zeedan offers to transfer £50k to tide her over.
