Bernie came out to her mum in The Vic on New Year's Eve, and Karen's reaction was everything you'd want it to be. She told her daughter how proud she was of her and how much she loved her.

But Karen hadn't yet connected the dots that the girl Bernadette said she was in love with was Tiffany Butcher.

So when she felt that Tiffany was messing her daughter around and not being a good friend, Karen decided to give her what for and chuck her out of the Taylors' flat.

Karen Taylor is the icon that nobody saw coming.

But when Bernie was really upset with her mum, it was up to Keanu to point out to Karen that Bernadette saw Tiff as more than just a friend.

Realising she'd made a terrible mistake sticking her beak in, Karen made Bernie a rainbow cake to say sorry.

And fans went wild as she gently asked her daughter: "Do you think Tiffany likes rainbow cake as well?" leaving Bernadette very confused by what she was getting at!

The scenes had people posting on Twitter in their droves about how much they love Karen and how she's becoming an EastEnders icon.
