EastEnders has embarked on a hard-hitting storyline where Stacey Slater develops bipolar disorder.
Stacey, who has recently had to deal with the death of a close friend Danielle, has been displaying more and more increasingly unpredictable behavior.
From explosive fights in the Square's beauty salon to excessive shopping sprees, her erratic behavior continues to worsen over the coming weeks.
Actress Lacey Turner, who plays Stacey, said: "It's great that EastEnders is continuing to raise awareness of this difficult issue. I hope I can do justice to this challenging storyline".
