Character Profile   List of appearances    

Ali Shahzad is the biological father of Shaq Qureshi. A postgraduate at University, Ali slept with an eighteen-year-old Misbah Maalik. Misbah informed him that she was pregnant, to which Ali disappeared. Having been born out of wedlock, Shaq was given to Misbah's sister Hasina to raise.

In August 2021, Cleo McQueen overheard Misbah telling Marnie Nightingale about Ali, but Misbah told Cleo that she was considering Ali for the head of oncology job at Dee Valley University Hospital. Cleo, innocently getting the wrong end of the stick, subsequently informed the hospital's HR that Misbah recommended Ali for the job.
