Alongside the sweep photo, she penned: 'In a city of 8.9 million people… it was bound to happen at some point! #fated #zainabandMasood #eastenders #memoriesaremadeofthis.' 

As fate appeared to step in, Nina and Nitin could be seen smiling next to a Post Office during their meeting and ironically, Nina's character Zainab once owned Walford's Post Office in the soap.   

One eagle-eyed follower penned: 'Did it have to be in front of a post office????'

What are the chances?! Ironically, Nina's character Zainab once owned Walford's Post Office in the soap where they played husband and wife from 2007 until 2013

Other fans were also quick to notice the wild coincidence as they added that they had spotted the Post Office signage. 

Fellow castmate Ricky Norwood, 35, known for playing FatBoy on the show, replied to the photo as he gushed: 'It’s beautiful to see you together again.' 

The onscreen couple arrived in Albert Square in 2007, with Nina departing after their respective character's divorced in 2013 following a turbulent marriage.

Whilst Nitin left EastEnders in 2019, after his character gave his Walford business to his nieces.

This comes after Nina became the first celebrity to be eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing and slammed the show after her exit.  

However, it appeared to be water under the bridge during December's final as she returned for the group dance with her fellow celebrities.

The former EastEnders actress was all smiles in a tasselled dress as she rocked the dancefloor to Relight My Fire with professional partner Neil Jones, 39. 

Following her exiti during week two of the show Nina claimed that the judges had been too harsh towards her with their scores.
