Bear Sylvester (played by Dex Lee) is in a spin after a blazing row with his mum Makeda (ex-EastEnders star Angela Wynter) on Doctors (1.45pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

On yesteday's episode of the BBC daytime drama, Makeda dropped the bombshell that she intends to use the proceeds from selling her house to help out Bear's sister Juliet... and NOT him!

It was a bit of a slap in the face to hear that Juliet, who lives in Vancouver, is still the favourite child despite everything Bear has been doing to help Makeda lately.

Bear tells his colleague Sid Vere (Ashley Rice) about the argument, who encourages Bear to try and patch things up with Makeda.

So Bear heads over to Makeda's house and lets himself in after he gets no response to his calls.

But there's a SHOCK in store when Bear finds his mum collapsed and unconscious...
