Stacey (Lacey Turner) is at her wits’ end over her mum Jean (Gillian Wright)’s mental health in upcoming episodes of EastEnders.
Jean’s behaviour has been troubling Stacey for some time now, and she’s convinced that it’s the result of Jean’s bipolar disorder. She’s been trying to convince Jean to see a doctor, but Jean is equally adamant that she’s just high on life and happy about being in love with Harvey Monroe (Ross Boatman). Kat (Jessie Wallace) and others have taken Jean’s side, leaving Stacey at times feeling isolated in her worry for her mum.
That’s set to change as others – including Lily (Lilia Turner) and Shirley (Linda Henry) – start to be aware that Jean’s behaviour isn’t just her usual zest for life.
As Jean excitedly plans her engagement party she and Shirley go shopping together for the wedding dress, but the day ends in disaster, leaving Shirley extremely concerned about her friend. Following this, Shirley tells Stacey they have to do something to help Jean. They know she won’t let them in the house, so they get Lily to help them get access to Harvey’s flat so they can talk to her.
They beg her to accept their help, but Jean’s adamant she doesn’t need help and she orders them out of the flat. A desperate Stacey realises this could be her best chance to force Jean to get help – and she takes some drastic action.
Will it work?
