EastEnders spoilers: Pregnant Bernie Taylor looks worrying ill after dangerous diet pill decision
PREGNANT Bernie Taylor’s health takes a turn for the worse next week in EastEnders.
Bernie agreed to carry Rainie and Stuart’s baby for them in exchange for money but hasn’t told her family.
That’s not her only secret though, as she’s also been taking dodgy diet pills to help her lose weight to avoid pregnancy complications.
Bernie ends up revealing her surrogacy secret her her horrified brother Keegan this week after he bursts in on her and his wife Tiffany taking a pregnancy test.
In episodes set to air next week, Karen tries to calm Keegan and Bernie down, but she bites back by telling Karen about Tiffany’s fillers, leaving Keegan unsettled.
Meanwhile, Rainie gets emotional watching a video of Abi and Vi suggests they go for a cuppa.
As they spot Bernie, Vi comments that she looks ill, but an oblivious Rainie hands over more cash to show Bernie she’s grateful.
Later, Karen has everyone over for lunch and she and Bernie work out their differences.
When Keegan explains to Bernie that he only told Karen about the surrogacy because he was worried about her, she feels guilty about the diet pills.

Will she open up about what she’s been taking?
Talking about Bernie’s decision to go ahead with the surrogacy, Claire Norris – who plays Bernie – told Digital Spy: "At the start it was definitely to do with money.
"She's been feeling the the pressure of being the oldest one in the household – Keano isn't there anymore and Keegan is living with Tiff.
"They've had money troubles, Bailey went missing and I think Bernie took it upon herself and believes that it's her responsibility to go out and get some money.
"Of course, she happens to go down the more exaggerated route but that's the opportunity that came up and she just went for it."
