EastEnders horror as Kim Fox rushed to hospital after health turn
EastEnders favourite Kim Fox (played by Tameka Empson) is usually the one to bring comedy to scenes on the BBC soap.
Since her near-fatal crash though, she has become very fearful and anxious.
With Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold) on death’s door, Kim’s stress levels soar in upcoming episodes.
In scenes yet to air, she is rushed to hospital after her health takes a turn for the worst.
Will she discover she is in fact unwell? Or is she neglecting to help herself as her mental health has taken a turn?

Official spoilers for the BBC soap reveal Kim will try to put on a brave face in the coming weeks.
She tries to mask her anxiety symptoms as she and her sister Denise Fox (Diane Parish) visit Lola.
Lola is desperately weak but glad to see them, and the women put on a good show of cheer to lift her spirits.
Lola is thrilled as her friends and neighbours let her know they are thinking of her by staging a unique greeting for her in the Square.
Kim is later accosted by a fan of the Kimfluencer in the salon and tries to paint on a brave face, but she’s struggling.
When her follower Adele asks her to record a birthday video for her daughter, Kim does her best but becomes overwhelmed and rushes out.
What could be going on with the popular character’s health?
Sonia Jackson (Natalie Cassidy) sees Kim collapse in the street and rushes over before calling an ambulance.
Kim stops her, but after Sonia gets her to describe her symptoms, she tells Kim that she needs to go to A&E and get checked out. Could Kim’s symptoms actually be indicative of something more serious?
She’s been blaming her panic on her increasing anxiety since the accident, but with nurse Sonia advising a trip to A&E, it seems something more sinister might be going on.
Kim does have a lot on her plate, with her near-break-up from partner Howie Danes (Delroy Atkinson) following the accident followed by the court hearing for dangerous driving and Lola’s tragic terminal illness.
Perhaps everything is poling on top of her and she is in denial about how much she’s struggling.
However, it could be that the hospital discovers her physical health is actually poor. Could Kim also be facing an underlying health condition?
EastEnders continues on Monday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
