EastEnders fans relieved as father of Bernadette’s baby is confirmed

EastEnders fans were relieved after it was revealed that teenager Bernadette Taylor’s baby was not fathered by her brother.

Viewers had been left wondering whether Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters) had got his half sister pregnant after scenes in the BBC soap last week.

But in Monday night’s instalment, Bernadette (Clair Norris) told her schoolmate Callum that he was the father of her child.

“i knew keanu was a good egg really glad its not an incest plot!” said one person on Twitter, while another fan said they were “so happy” that the plot had gone a different way.

“Thank god it’s not incest #EastEnders he’s just looking out for her like a big bro should,” tweeted another viewer.

But some fans think an incest plot would have made for interesting viewing.

“That brother and sister incest story line would’ve been such a good story line omg,” posted one disappointed viewer.

“Just when I thought #eastenders was gonna get interesting again, take a risk & do an incest storyline. But noooope,” said another.
