Broken Karen arrested as she smashes launderette to smithereens in EastEnders

EastEnders favourite Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley) was taken away in handcuffs tonight (May 6), after she laid waste to the launderette.

The mainstay of the BBC One soap – struggling to cope with Bailey Baker’s (Kara Leah Fernandes) disappearance – decided to make a TV appeal to find her missing stepdaughter.

Appearing alongside Mitch (Roger Griffiths), she told members of the public that – in spite of what they might think – Bailey had a happy home life.

It all became too much for her, and she was later regretful of how she handled herself during the press event – but Mitch told her the public was on her side.

Karen understood what he meant – that is, until she discovered that trolls had been leaving horrid messages on the fundraising page.

A neighbour, meanwhile, left a box of supplies – including bath salts – on her doorstep, which proved to be the final straw.

Karen, therefore, carried the box into the centre of the square and smashed it to pieces – claiming that she has no use for such items, and berated her fellow residents for not searching harder for Bailey.

After catching sight of the work going on in the launderette, she saw red, and picked up a sledgehammer and smashed the premises to smithereens.

The police arrived to arrest the popular character, who broke down in tears as she revealed she wanted nothing more than Bailey returned home safe.

EastEnders continues Friday May 7 at 8:35pm on BBC One.
