Stacey Slater struggles to know what to do with Jean Slater in Wednesday's episode of EastEnders (7:30 pm. see our TV Guide for full listings).

Stacey Slater settles mum Jean Slater back in at home after taking her out of the hospital where she was being treated for her latest bipolar episode.

When Kat Slater and Eve Unwin find out what Stacey has done, they are alarmed, telling Stacey that home is not the best place for Jean right now.

Stacey, however, refuses to send her mum back to the hospital, insisting she can cope with caring for her. She invites Jean's former fiance Harvey Monroe over in a bid to get Jean to open up. 

But after the terrifying events of Jean's breakdown, he's not sure he can deal with seeing her right now and he makes up an excuse not to visit.

Back home, Jean is refusing to eat and she's listless and unable to interact with the children. It dawns on Stacey that she has a huge challenge ahead if she wants to get Jean well again.
