EastEnders fans were left worried for Bernie Taylor after they predicted a death twist in her future.
Bernie was chatting to pal Tiff in the café about her need to lose weight in order to become Rainie and Stuart's surrogate.
She's been taking diet pills and undergoing an intense exercise regime in order to shift the pounds before they make their decision – but Bernie was worried she wasn't seeing results quick enough.
"I don't think them pills are working fast enough. I weigh myself twice a day – sometimes it says I've lost weight, sometimes it says I've gained," Bernie explained to Tiff.
"I'm trying so hard, you know?" she continued.
"I read about these stronger pills online. People who take them have lost nearly twice as much weight than with the pills I'm taking," Bernie confessed.
Tiff replied: "I think Chloe sells 'em, but I'm not sure about them. I don't think they're properly controlled."
Tiff warned her that the pills were also incredibly expensive, and told her it's "not a good idea" for her to be taking stronger pills.
But concerned fans immediately flocked to social media to share their own frantic predictions about Bernie's future.
"Be careful Bernie, please don't turn to addiction!" one fan tweeted, as another echoed: "Oh Bernie this isn't going to end well!"
Someone else posted: "Oh Bernie, please be careful."
"Bernie does realise she [can] get money in a much safer way or just apply for Universal Credit. Not be somebody's surrogate and overdosing on the pills," someone else advised.
Later, Bernie admitted to Tiff that she had twisted her knee while out jogging – just as Rainie popped into the Queen Vic to demand the date for her next weigh-in.
"Keep drinking them," she instructed, gesturing to Bernie's green smoothie.
"I need your help," Bernie appealed to Tiff. "You was happy enough to get me the other ones, so why not these?"
And, as something occurred to her, Bernie said: "Oh, I get it. You're one of those that likes to have an overweight friend because it makes them feel better about themselves."
"Bernie, I'm thinking of you!" Tiff implored, but Bernie insisted: "If you were really thinking of me, you'd get me those pills."

One fan even predicted it could put the potential baby in danger, as they wrote on Twitter: "Bernie, Tiff has your [wellbeing] at heart. You are putting Rainie and Stuart's baby at risk if you get any stronger pills."
"Rainie is bullying and manipulating Bernie, poor girl is going to end up collapsing!" another commented.
And, later in the evening, Tiff handed Bernie a baggie of pills.
