Amal Hussain made her first appearance on 14 June 2018. She is portrayed by Natasha Jayetileke.


Amal appears after she is contacted by Masood Ahmed on a dating website and they go on a date together. Masood pretends to be a perfect Muslim to impress Amal, even when she says she is not a practising Muslim. Masood believes she is the daughter of a businessman, Habib Hussain, and hopes that the date can lead to him meeting Habib. However, when Shirley Carter discovers Masood's plan, she introduces herself to Amal and says she can give a reference to Amal's father. Amal tells Masood that her father, Asir, is dead. She realises that Masood was putting on an act to impress her, though Masood tries to say that he is still interested in her. She says if he was not a liar she might have fancied him, and leaves. The next day, Amal meets Masood and asks him to take her on a date as long as he is himself. They meet in the café, and Amal's mother, Rana Hussain, who set up Amal's dating profile, arrives, so Amal asks Masood to lie that they have been dating for two months. Masood is confused when Rana says that he wants to marry Amal, and Amal says Masood should meet the rest of their family tonight so she can show her single cousins that dating sites work. However, Kathy Beale realises that Amal is using Masood to show Rana that she does not want to date, so Kathy kisses Masood, causing Rana to leave. Amal thanks Masood and Kathy as it will keep her mother from interfering for a few months.
