What happened with Bernie’s last pregnancy?

Shortly after she arrived in 2017, Karen started to notice Bernadette had a craving for cheese and onion crisps.

She soon confronted Bernie asking how far along she was into her pregnancy.

Karen became suspicious that Bernie’s brother Keanu could be the father of the child, but he was disgusted by the accusation and said he was just trying to support his sister.

It was later revealed that the father was a boy Bernie went to school with and had been seeing, called Callum.

Eventually Karen came around to the idea of Bernie having a child and the family excitedly prepared for the new arrival.

But a couple of weeks later, Bernie began having stomach pains and this led to her having a stillborn baby girl. She gave birth at 18 weeks.

Callum and Bernie named their daughter Belle and they had a ceremony in the allotment.
