2022-: Arrival[]

Matchmaker Nadira arrived in Hollyoaks in March 2022, attending a Muslim matrimony event at The Dog in the Pond. Whilst there, she encountered childhood friend Shaq Qureshi, who was amazed by how different she looked. After learning that Shaq was having trouble romantically, she decided to help him find a wife. The deal was complicated when Nadira learned that Shaq had unfinished business with his ex-girlfriend Verity Hutchinson, but Shaq showed his dedication to Nadira's matchmaking. Shaq ended up developing feelings for Nadira and eventually convinced her to marry him.

Nadira ended up feeling conflicted after befriending Juliet Nightingale and falling for her. The pair initiated an affair, despite Juliet also being in a relationship, but Nadira repeatedly denied having feelings for Juliet. Nadira's father Kamal arrived in the village in May 2022 after Shaq informed him of the engagement, which Nadira had not. After Kamal gave Shaq money to fund the wedding, Nadira and Shaq set the date for 24th October. However, Nadira's feelings for Juliet continued, especially as Juliet and Peri Lomax began having relationship problems. After attending a meeting about the wedding plans, Juliet took Nadira to the City Wall, kissed her, then told Nadira to make a decision about their future.
