Sonia Fowler has received a devastating update about sister Bianca Jackson following her EastEnders exit.

Bianca once again left Walford this week after a major row over Reiss Colwell funding Sonia's IVF journey with his wife Debbie's money.

Reiss and Bianca were briefly united behind Sonia when she discovered she had a blighted ovum and was never actually pregnant, but they'd started fighting again this week.

Before Bianca left town, she'd confided in Kat Slater that she'd recently been diagnosed with depression but had stopped taking the medication she'd been prescribed.

In Thursday's (June 13) episode on BBC One and BBC iPlayer, Kat tried to explain to Sonia that Bianca was dealing with depression issues, only for Sonia to brush her off.

It was after a heart-to-heart with Karen Taylor and attending Keanu Taylor's funeral that Kat decided she needed to try to get through to Sonia one more time.

The funeral also included a humiliating moment for Reiss when he fumbled his eulogy for Keanu due to Ian Beale mocking his financial trouble in front of all the mourners.

Kat visited Sonia after the funeral to explain that Bianca had been battling depression and hadn't contacted anyone since leaving Walford.

"I'm no nurse but I know when someone's at their lowest," Kat insisted. "She's not taking her pills. Just go and speak to her!"

With Kat's warning on her mind, Sonia reached out to Tiffany Butcher-Baker, only to learn that Tiff hadn't heard from Bianca either.

Reiss soon arrived home, comparing his eulogy to being "like a lamb to the slaughter". Sonia explained that Bianca was ill and then promised she would stand by her husband's side through his own abandonment issues.
