There are emotional scenes to be had in EastEnders as Dinah Baker (Anjela Lauren Smith) dies after taking her own life, having been overcome by depression and thinking that her young carer daughter Bailey (Kara-Leah Fernandes) would stand a better chance at life without her.

EastEnders has been working closely with Winstons Wish, a specialist childhood bereavement charity, on the storyline which will follow Bailey after losing her mum.Over the past few months, viewers have seen nine year old Bailey adopting a young carer role and looking after her mother, Dinah.

With a history of mental health problems and recent debilitating medical problems, it soon became clear that Dinah was struggling to cope, which led to her taking her own life. Bailey is now in the care of her father Mitch, and her extended family, the Taylors.

Over the coming weeks, Baileys reaction and grief will be at the centre of the ongoing storyline as her father and the Taylors all rally around to offer their support.

Fergus Crow, CEO of Winstons Wish said: In the UK, on average, someone takes their own life every 90 minutes. Many of these may be the parents and siblings of children who are left overwhelmed and bewildered by what has happened. EastEnders is doing essential work in bringing this issue into the public eye.

Thousands of children and young people in the UK are suffering at any one time, after losing someone close to them through suicide. Its something were very worried about – and while public awareness of suicide is increasingly higher, awareness of the consequences for the children bereaved by suicide is not. My hope is that the storyline will not only raise awareness of the devastating effect suicide can have on children but, most importantly, signpost adults who may be supporting a bereaved child to the support and advice available through Winstons Wish.

Kate Oates (Head of Continuing Drama) told Metro.co.uk: Over the past few weeks, and into this summer, EastEnders has been featuring a range of different stories about mental health. Through characters like Sean, Jean and Bex, weve sought to examine the spectrum of different challenges that so many people face, either openly or in secret, every day.

Spider-Man out of Marvel Cinematic Universe prompting fans to boycott Sony

Spider-Man: Far From Home has already grossed $580m at global box office A Still from Spider-Man: Far From Home

Marvel will no longer be producing any Spider-Man films, after Disney bosses failed to come to an agreement with Sony.

According to Deadline, the studios were unable to come to an agreement over money, meaning Spidey is ducking out of MCU for now.

The publication states Disney asked that any future films starring the superhero – currently played by Tom Holland – be a 50/50 co-financing arrangement, something Sony refused to consider.

Instead, they reportedly suggested to keep their current deal, offering the studio 5 per cent of the first dollar grossing, with the studio declining.

Marvel president Kevin Feige was creative lead in the previous two Spider-Man films of the latest era, with 23-year-old Tom climbing into the superhero suit.

But unless a negotiation is reached, he will not have the same role in the two movies reportedly in the works.

L to R: Spider-Man/Peter Parker (Tom Holland), Iron Man/Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Drax (Dave Bautista), Star-Lord/Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) and Mantis (Pom Klementieff)

Understandably, fans are not impressed with the developments, with some even threatening to boycott Sony over their involvement.

Flocking to Twitter, one fumed: @Sony needs to go back to negotiating table with @Disney to keep #SpiderMan in the #MCU Spidey movies need to be in that universe and we dont need Sony to f*** it up again. #savespiderman.

Ill be seriously p***ed if #SpiderMan is no longer in the MCU, another said. I guess Sony hasnt learned their lesson.

Im gonna go ahead and call Sony on their bluff. Im pretty sure they will not pull away from Marvel, yall worrying over nothing. When Disney wants something they get it, thats it! #SpiderMan, a fan suggested.

#SpiderMan far from home was the highest grossing Sony movie, but yet this still took him away from the MCU!! Oh, these MFers extra stupid, a Twitter user fumed.

While a follower added: #BoycottSony They cant take Spidey away like this! Boycott Sony until they give #SpiderMan to Disney! FULL CONTROL OVER THE CHARACTER!!

The news comes after it was revealed Spider-Man: Far From Home – aka the second instalment in the recent series – has become Sonys highest grossing film of all time.

Meaning Spidey is even bigger than James Bond.

Kristen Stewart was pictured visiting a Los Angeles spa on Monday, leaving us wondering if she needed a relaxing massage as well after the trailer for new monster flick Underwater dropped.

Kristen, wearing a white crop top and black leggings, arrived at the spa on her own for a treatment (or maybe two) on the same day as the trailer for the new thriller was released.

Underwater stars Kristen, John Gallagher Jr and Vincent Cassel as a crew of underwater researchers who must scramble to safety after an earthquake devastates their subterranean laboratory.

But the researchers, who are seven miles under the oceans surface, realise that there may be a bigger concern than just getting help after the earthquake.
