Will Bernie end up hospitalised as a drive to lose weight and go through with the surrogacy consumes her?
Commenting on the storyline, EastEnders fans fear Bernie is pushing herself too hard.
One tweeted: “I really don’t like where they’re heading with Bernie #EastEnders.”
“Don’t push yourself too hard Bernie when you don’t need to #EastEnders,” another said.
“Bernie is determined to help her family #EastEnders,” a third added.
Someone else wrote: “I think Bernie having Rainie and Stu’s baby is a bad idea! I understand she means well and wants to help her family out. But I dunno it just seems rushed and not thought through enough. #EastEnders.”
EastEnders continues on BBC One on Thursday at 7.35pm.
