It later emerged that Ethan had considered her as his mother, and was devastated when she disappeared.
Speaking about Ethan’s reaction when he first saw Manpreet in the village, actor Emile John – who plays Ethan – revealed: “All the trauma and pain from not one absent mother but two will all come flooding back to him.
“He’s going to need to tell her exactly how he feels to relinquish that pain. He is going to need to say exactly how he feels.”
Speaking about Ethan’s ordeal when Manpreet went missing, Charles actor Kevin Mathurin added: “Ethan was traumatised by the whole ordeal; he was old enough to know that she was important to their lives and went missing.
“It took a lot for Charles to protect and raise him through that.”
