Sonia Fowler returned to EastEnders tonight and announced she wants Bex to leave Walford and live with her.
Following Bex’s mysterious phone call yesterday pleading for help after her latest humiliation at the hands of Madison, Alexandra and Louise, it was revealed as Sonia barged in to the Fowlers’ Good Friday gathering that she was the one Bex called.
Fully up to speed on Bex’s bullying nightmare, Sonia immediately laid into the rest of the family for not realising what was going on and letting her daughter down. “She’s being bullied,” barked the unimpressed parent “…and none of you lot seem to give a damn!”
After reading the riot act to the whole clan on their neglect of Bex, including a cheeky pop at Michelle for the whole Preston business, Sonia made her big announcement: while admitting she’d taken her eye off the ball while working away in Kettering, she’d decided things had gone too far and that she wanted Bex to live with her.
Martin didn’t look very happy as the stage was set for a battle over beleaguered Bex. In next week’s episodes, Sonia tries to get to the bottom of her daughter’s bullying and discovers Louise is involved – leading to a confrontation with Sharon over her stepdaughter’s behaviour.
With Louise’s antics exposed, Bex announces their friendship is over – will she be whisked off to Kettering to live with her mum forever, leaving everyone in Albert Square behind?
