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.

Writer Rips Ex-Gersh Agents After Network Meeting Canceled

UPDATED: Writer-producer Jorge Reyes had some harsh words for his former Gersh agents, claiming they canceled a meeting they’d scheduled for him with a Fox executive before he fired them and moved to the Verve agency last week.

“So Gersh found out I was going over to Verve &asked my mgr about it this morning,” he wrote on his Twitter feed Monday. “I had a meeting at Fox this afternoon. I get there, they told me the meeting was ‘cancelled by my mgmt company.’ When I checked, I found out it was Gersh calling to cancel my meeting.”

“The agents names at Gersh are Roy Ashton, David Rubin, & Shan Roy,” he continued. “I don’t know which one of those small motherfuckers did that, so they can all share the blame. If they did that, who’s to say they wouldn’t badmouth/talk shit to the execs I’ve already met?”

“I’ve alerted my management company & Verve. We also let the exec at Fox know what happened, who apologized to me & was shocked that Gersh did that.”

Reyes, a writer-producer on USA Network’s Queen of the South and creator of the Kevin Hill TV series that ran on UPN in the early 2000s, signed with Verve shortly after the agency signed the WGA’s new Code of Conduct.

In a statement Tuesday, Gersh said that it had “set these meetings several months ago before the strike when Mr. Reyes was a Gersh client. When the client signed with another agency, the meetings were removed from the books as is normal protocol. We wish Mr. Reyes the best.”

“I actually liked these guys before this,” Reyes tweeted of his former Gersh agents. “They dropped the ball on a couple of things pre ATA conflict. Verve was originally in the running when I signed with Gersh. When they signed the COC (Code of Conduct), I thought this was a good time to move, given my other concerns.”

“They don’t have to like that I moved,” he added. “But they were ALREADY fired, and in no position to cancel a meeting with an exec that wanted to meet me because of my writing. Now I’ll be fine. But this is vindictive, fucked up, & I wouldn’t put it past them to try & sabotage me.”

Added Reyes in his series of tweets: “BRING IT, MOTHERFUCKERS. I plan to email every exec I met and tell them this. Roy Ashton, David Rubin, Shan Roy. Remember the names. You come for me, you better not fucking miss.”

On Friday, Reyes tweeted that “I am now a Verve client. There had been discussions way previous to the WGA/ATA conflict, but now seemed as good a time as any for me. Looking forward to the other mid-level agencies coming to their senses for all of us soon. #WGASolidarity”

Here are his tweets:
