EastEnders shares Denise Fox aftermath in new spoilers

EastEnders spoilers follow.

EastEnders has revealed a new dilemma for Stacey Slater in the aftermath of Denise Fox's breakdown.

Denise was sectioned in Thursday's episode (February 22), after experiencing psychosis following her part in Keanu Taylor's death cover-up.

The situation reached a crisis point after Denise went on a dangerous drive with her stepdaughter Amy, before going missing in the woods.

Although Jack wanted to look after Denise himself in the aftermath of this, the decision was taken out of his hands when two doctors and a mental health professional arrived at the house to assess Denise.

Denise was later sectioned and taken away in an ambulance.

Next week's scenes will see Jack struggling to deal with the fallout of Denise's breakdown and sectioning.

After bumping into Chelsea, Jack decides to pay Denise a visit, but she refuses to see him.

Devastated, he returns to the Square to seek comfort from Stacey.

It's also revealed that it was Stacey who called the mental health services, after growing increasingly concerned that Denise's family were out of their depth managing the situation alone.

Suki fumes at Stacey for putting them all at risk by calling the doctors for Denise.

Stacey insists Denise doesn't know where the murder weapon is, but Suki isn't convinced and asks Stacey to stay close to Jack for any information that Denise might be spilling.

Before Jack goes to see Denise, Stacey takes the opportunity to tell him to ignore anything Denise might be saying.

After this, Jack tries to maintain to his family that Denise is doing much better.

However, Amy is deflated to learn from Chelsea that this isn't the case and Denise isn't doing as well as Jack has led her to believe.

EastEnders airs on Mondays - Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer, where most episodes drop early at 6am ahead of their TV broadcast.
