Kim Fox struggles with her secret torment in EastEnders
LIFE as an influencer is becoming increasingly hard for Kim Fox as she seemingly struggles with her mental health.
However her torment doesn’t remain secret for very long as one Walford resident takes action next week in EastEnders.
Like many other Albert Square residents, Kim Fox (played by Tameka Empson) is trying to make peace with Lola Pearce’s tragic fate.
But in recent weeks, the fan favourite has had struggles of her own, particularly after crashing her car and endangering Denzel Danes.
Kim faced trial but prior to her court date, Denzel (Jaden Ladega) caught her in a panic attack and implored her to say something to his father, Howie.
Although she promised she’d take action, Kim kept her torment a secret from those closest to her.
However, in scenes airing next week on BBC One, she tries to mask her anxiety symptoms with great difficulty just as she and her sister Denise (Diane Parish) visit Lola (Danielle Harold).
The pair of sisters manage to lift Lola’s spirits, despite her condition and weakness.
Lola is thrilled as her friends and neighbours let her know they are thinking of her by staging a unique greeting in the Square.
Sadly, things go from bad to worse for the Kimfluencer as she’s soon accosted by an online fan in the salon.
Kim tries to paint on a brave face but is clearly struggling.

But when Adele asks her to record a birthday video for her daughter, an overwhelmed Kim tries her best before rushing out of Fox & Hair.
Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy) then approaches her, seeing Kim collapse in the street.
The nurse calls an ambulance but Kim quickly stops her.
Yet when Sonia gets her to describe her symptoms, Kim’s condition convinces her to insist she goes to A&E to get checked out.
Could there be more to Kim’s health struggles?
EastEnders airs from Monday to Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
