ITV viewers noticed the beautician wasn’t acting like her usual self as she stood by her sister Nicola King during Naomi Anderson’s trial.

Fans of the Yorkshire-based drama were convinced she’d be set for a health storyline as she was seen taking frequent trips to the bathroom and feeling very thirsty.

While she initially feared she could be diagnosed with dementia, village GP Liam Cavanagh eventually cleared things up.

He let her know she was actually going through the menopause, which Laurel Thomas had also thought of.

Coming up next week, Bernice struggles to digest her diagnosis and grapples with both loneliness and other menopausal symptoms.

Her daughter Gabby Thomas (LA pression d'être la sœur de Meena Jutla devient insupportable pour Manpreet Sharma la semaine prochaine Rosie Bentham) and Rhona Goskirk (Zoe Henry) both try to support her to no avail.

Bernice longs for something of her own and regrets quitting her job at PampaManda, Mandy Dingle’s beauty salon.

As viewers may know, Bernice left her job on a whim following a mishap but soon wonders what she could be doing with her spare time.

In later scenes, Laurel Thomas (Charlotte Bellamy) and Bear Wolf (Joshua Richards) convince her to swallow her pride and ask Mandy for her job back.

While viewers will have to wait before they can find out if Bernice gets her job back, she gets rattled by a strange discovery.

In Café Main Street, Bernice stumbles upon a joker card left after the morning’s poker game.

She wonders how she should interpret its meaning but soon makes an offer.
