EastEnders fans were left “broken hearted” last night, when Dinah Wilson chose to take her own life.
During incredibly emotional scenes on Thursday (May 16), Bailey’s mum – played by Anjela Lauren Smith – made the devastating decision that suicide was preferable to living with Multiple Sclerosis and mental illness.
After previously hinting to Karen that she wanted to take her own life, Dinah finally went through with her tragic plan.
While Karen took Bailey to the park, Dinah was left alone long enough to end it all.
Poor Mitch was horrified when he checked up on Dinah later and found she was dead.
Viewers saw Mitch leave the house with a pained expression on his face, before an ambulance arrived to take away her body.
He then had to break the news to Karen – who was as devastated as those watching from home.
Tearful fans expressed their upset on Twitter, with one saying: “EastEnders leaving me absolutely heartbroken tonight… Such a sad end to some an important issue.”
Another added: “That last scene between Dinah and Bailey broke my heart!”
