Hollyoaks spoilers follow.
In scenes set to air next week, Mandy expresses her concerns over DJ's development, asking Misbah Maalik to make an appointment for him at the hospital.
The next day, Mandy glams up for her date with Ali and bumps into Misbah along the way, who tells Mandy that she's arranged an appointment for DJ at the hospital.
When Misbah eventually finds out who Mandy is dressed up for, she offers her a word of warning and tells her not to get involved with Ali.
Will Mandy listen to Misbah's advice – and why is Misbah so wary of Ali?
While Misbah remains unconvinced of Ali's intentions, it doesn't take long for the village's new resident to win over his colleagues (and Mandy) with his charm and professionalism.
Under the surface, however, Ali is hiding a dark secret that could cause some serious trouble for his son Shaq Qureshi – and for Misbah.
"I'm delighted to be joining the cast of Hollyoaks, particularly as I'm part of a very topical and potentially explosive storyline," Raji James said of his 'Oaks role last month.
"Ali is a very complex character and I'm thoroughly enjoying the opportunity to explore his darker side."
Hollyoaks airs these scenes on Tuesday, September 28 and Wednesday, September 29 at 6.30pm on Channel 4. Selected omnibus episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video.
