EastEnders viewers have expressed grave concerns for the mental health of Bex Fowler, and fear the teenager might be suffering from suicidal thoughts.
Sonia and Martin’s daughter has been struggling with self-doubt and anxiety for months now – but, sadly, no one seems to have noticed!
On Thursday (September 19), Bex continued to battle her secret demons with no one around her noticing.
Recently, viewers have noticed signs that all is not well with the troubled teen.
She recently ran away and turned to drugs to cope with the stress of her exams and her mum’s expectations that she’ll go to Oxford University.
Bex even attempted to sacrifice herself to Hunter Owen, when he was looking for a hostage in dramatic scenes earlier this month.
In scenes some EastEnders viewers found frustrating, Bex told uncle Robbie Jackson she felt “numb”.
She asked him: “Do you ever feel numb? I do… All the time.”
But despite Bex’s obvious distress, Robbie didn’t spot the signs and joined the likes of Bex’s best friend Louise Mitchell in failing to hear Bex’s cries for help.
Those watching from home found Bex’s plight “heartbreaking”.
Agreed. I feel horrible for her. She is breaking and no one can see it

Nobody seems to notice the anguish Bex is going through. None of her family seem to look at her really properly.

Every time Bex has a scene, it makes my heart crumble. She's clearly depressed and showing suicidal tendencies. And everyone is so oblivious, caught up in having a good time that no one – not even her mum has noticed. Not to mention her Dad left her. @bbceastenders #EastEnders

One wrote: “How can none of them see how depressed Bex is? This is heartbreaking to watch #EastEnders.”
Another thought the same, adding: “Agreed. I feel horrible for her. She is breaking and no one can see it.”
A third typed: “Nobody seems to notice the anguish Bex is going through. None of her family seem to look at her really properly.”
“Every time Bex has a scene, it makes my heart crumble,” said one more. “She’s clearly depressed and showing suicidal tendencies.
“And everyone is so oblivious, caught up in having a good time that no one – not even her mum – has noticed. Not to mention her Dad left her.”
Will anybody notice how vulnerable Bex is? Or could she try to harm herself?
In worrying scenes reminiscent of Aidan Connor’s turmoil in Coronation Street, will Bex get the help she needs before it’s too late?
