What’s wrong with Jean Slater in EastEnders?

A few instances of erratic behaviour from Jean have left fans worried that she might have binned her medication. 

Fans were left worried for Jean Slater when she referred to Whitney as Stacey during last night's episode. 

Viewers were also horrified recently when Jean convinced herself that Daniel had returned from the dead – again – when she received a posthumous present from her late lover.

The present arrived in the form of a gigantic box, leaving Jean panicked that Daniel had faked his death again.

Later when Tommy played the piano – which had been in the box – Jean thought it was Daniel who was playing it for her and began to fret that he was back to haunt her.  

One saddened viewer tweeted: "Sooo, Jean called Whitney, “Stacey”? Had to rewind that… #Eastenders."

Sure enough, official spoilers have revealed that Kush is set to discover that Jean hasn’t been taking her bipolar medication later this week.

Kush then tries to get Jean to open up but she insists there’s nothing wrong. 

Kush’s worries start to eat away at him and he end up going to great lengths to make sure Jean is taking her tablets.  

EastEnders fans know that Jean has had a shocking couple of years as she's had to grieve for her lover Daniel twice after he faked his death and then died for real upon his return to the Square. 

What do we know about Jean’s seizures in EastEnders?

Jean’s health is set to take a turn for the worse in upcoming scenes when she rings the police to report Whitney’s disappearance – despite her return to the Square. 

Jean later explodes at Whitney in the restaurant for lying about her whereabouts and making her look stupid. 

Shirley has a deep chat with Kush and he admits that he discovered that Jean hasn’t been taking her medication.

But when they try to approach the matter with Jean, she’s furious and storms off. 

When Tina and Shirley finally find her, they’re stunned to discover she’s having a seizure.  

The pair assume that Jean’s mood swings and collapse are to do with her not taking her medication – but could it be something else?

Could Jean be heading towards another breakdown?

Is Jean Slater going to die in EastEnders?

EastEnders are yet to confirm how Jean’s health battle will end at this stage, but fans are convinced that her friends and family will return to save the day and support Jean through her struggles.

One fan tweeted: "Jean called Whitney Stacey, is she ill again or off her medication for bipolar, maybe this will lead to Stacey, Kat and Sean returning #Eastenders."

But with exact details yet to be revealed, fans will have to tune in to find out what’s in store for Jean.
