EastEnders’ Rainie Cross COLLAPSES after major pressures get the better of her

Rainie Cross has had a lot to deal with since her return to Albert Square -pretending to be Max Branning’s wife until the pair got together for real.

She has dealt with his drinking, his abusive behaviour and his dodgy dealings down at the car lot.

But in the end, she took it all in her stride and thrived, bagging herself a new boyfriend in Max and custody of baby Abi between the pair of them, meaning their epic gamble paid off.

In episodes set to air next week, things go even further, however, as she struggles to deal with all the issues of planning baby Abi’s birthday party.

First, Max stresses over plans for Abi’s birthday party, and then he is called to watch, so asks Jack to watch Abi rather than Rainie.

Rainie feels shut out of the party planning and offers to take charge of the event, but when she collects the cake she has a moment of dizzniess and drops the cake.

She is determined to fix things, however, and ends up taking on more than she can handle due to her feeling ill, and ends up collapsing.

Max returns to the house and finds Abi crying, and is shocked to see Rainie has collapsed on the kitchen floor.

He then has to head back to work, and asks Jack to salvage Abi’s birthday party, while Rainie insists she is fine and able to help out.

The party gets underway and Rainie is, once again, determined to help out, but Max sees she is still unsteady and has some harsh words for her so she stops helping, and storms out of the house, leaving the door ajar.

Later, Jack can’t convince Max to give Rainie the benefit of the doubt wuth Abi, and so Rainie throws Abi’s present away in a fit of anger and rage.

Jack tries to help Max see sense, so goes to get the present and shows it to Max, revealing it as a photo album full of pictures of her mum.

Max is moved by the present and eventually lets Rainie help with Abi when she cries.

Finally, Max books Rainie an appointment at the doctor’s, and Jack is pleased to see Max is making an effort to look after Rainie.

EastEnders airs Monday and Friday at 8pm and Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC1.
