EastEnders Clair Norris: Why did Bernadette leave?

Earlier this year, Bernie agreed to be a surrogate for Stuart and Rainie.

The couple were desperate to have a child of their own, especially after Max ran off with his granddaughter, Rainie’s great-niece, Abi Jr, who he shares custody of with Rainie.

Bernie agreed to be their surrogate in return for payment, which she could use to help her family.

However when Rainie discovered Linda was pregnant with Max’s baby, she wanted to use the information to get Max back to Walford with Abi.

Linda’s wife Mick hit back and told Mitch, who is the father of Bernie’s brother Keegan, that Rainie is using drugs again.

Eventually Mick admitted he lied, but Bernie still wanted her to take a drugs test.

Despite tests revealing Rainie was clean, Bernie decided she wanted to get away from Walford.

Her mum, Karen, suggested maybe she didn’t want to give the baby up.
