Is Bex Fowler leaving EastEnders?

Things have become increasingly tough for Bex Fowler (Jasmine Armfield) in EastEnders lately – and they’re not about to get any easier.

In recent weeks we’ve seen her character becoming more and more dependent on ADHD drugs to stay calm amid all of her exam stress, as she struggles to cope with her life.

But things are set to step up a notch on Monday night when she goes missing.

Is this the end for the character? Here’s what we know…

Is Bex Fowler leaving EastEnders?

It would certainly seem to look that way given Bex’s state of mind, as she flees Walford after being rejected by Kush (Davood Ghadami) following her attempts to lure him into a seduction.

Despite this Bex is not leaving the show, and this won’t be the last you’ll be seeing of her – although it’s a pretty dark storyline for the teenager.

The story sees Bex wandering the streets paranoid and distressed as a result of her pills, only to be approached by a stranger who leads her to run away.

It’s the culmination of a storyline which has seen her struggling to cope with the pressure Sonia (Natalie Cassidy) and Martin (James Bye) have put her under to get into university, as she also struggles to deal with the anniversary of Shakil’s death.

On top of all that she is dealing with the rejection from Kush, who also found out about her drug dependency – while Stuart Highway (Ricky Champ)’s attempts to comfort her also ended badly after Sonia got the wrong end of the stick.

With Bex now missing, the finger of suspicion immediately points at Stuart – who later finds her smashed phone in the allotment – and all hell later breaks loose when Martin turns violent on him.

You’ll just have to keep watching to see how it resolves itself – and what the future holds for Bex.

EastEnders airs weeknights on Mondays and Fridays at 8pm and on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7.30pm.
