EastEnders

Fans of EastEnders will know that recently ditched bride-to-be Sharon Rickman (Letitia Dean) has once again turned to painkillers as she struggles to come to terms with all that’s happened recently…

And in next week’s episodes, we’re set to see that Sharon is risking her life when she collapses after an overdose of tablets mixed with booze!

The drama begins on Monday, April 29 when Sharon goes back to Tanya’s to try to steal the rest of her friend’s painkillers, which Tanya (Jo Joyner) was prescribed when she had cancer…

However, what Sharon doesn’t know is that Tanya has discovered some of the tablets are missing, and she immediately jumps to the conclusion that Lauren (Jacqueline Jossa) has been taking them!

So after throwing the rest of the strong painkillers away, Tanya confronts Lauren, who of course angrily denies taking them.

Meanwhile, Sharon manages to get into Tanya’s kitchen where she desperately hunts for the pills. However, when she sees they’re in the bin, she snatches them out and makes her excuses to leave, prompting Tanya to wonder what’s going on with Sharon.

However, in the episode that airs on Tuesday 30th, when Tanya confronts Sharon about the pills, Sharon lies and says that with the stress of everything lately, she’s been having migraines and needed something stronger than over the counter meds. Tanya’s worried though and she makes Sharon promise to go and see her GP.

After she leaves Sharon in R&R, we see the club boss giving a wad of notes to one of the bouncers, who later brings her a delivery of pills…

In the episode that airs on Thursday, May 2nd, soon after Sharon and Phil (Steve McFadden) decide to go public with their relationship, Sharon experiences a wave of nausea from the concoction of pills and alcohol she’s taken…

She uses Lexi’s tiredness an excuse to leave The Vice, and when she arrives home, she has to leave Lexi in her buggy while she runs upstairs clearly to be sick.

At the pub, disappointed that Lexi’s gone home, Lola heads to Phil’s to say goodnight to the baby, however, when she finds Lexi sitting in her buggy, she’s shocked to find Sharon unconscious on the bathroom floor!

However, as Lola goes downstairs, Sharon realises the pills are in the kitchen, and she races to get to them before Lola, but she’s too late. Lola fears the worst and is intent on calling Phil, however, as Sharon confesses about her problem, she adds that Phil has no idea about it and pleads with Lola not to tell him…
