So when she is caught on camera ‘slagging it up’ her brother is less than happy and takes it out on her by giving her a slap.
Her problems continue at school when Sue Carp (Charlie Hardwick) attempts to pronounce ‘Pączki’ which is a Polish doughnuts and ends up offending Rukhsana who gets her own back by setting off the fire alarm.
Rukhsana’s family try to force her to go to Leicester for a new start but she runs away at the last minute and straight to Spud who hides her.
Unfortunately Spud later upsets Rukhsana when she calls her boring.
