Eastenders Spoilers – Frank Dishes on Rainie’s Thoughts About The Surrogacy
In an interview with the media, Franks says that “she’s absolutely gobsmacked and mortified when she finds out that he’s told her about Bernie because Rainie knows that this is just something else that Vi will want to stick her nose in and make a judgment on and it’s really none of her business.
“She’ll want to start stirring the pot in some way and Rainie is not happy about that at all. This is between her and Stuart, and nobody else,” she continued.

Franks also revealed that Rainie is “nervous” about having Bernie become the surrogate because of her previous miscarriage.
“Right now this does seem to be the best choice. Bernie is coming across as someone who is completely committed to surrogacy. So that is a bit of a dilemma for Rainie because she’s nervous to go headlong into it,” Franks added.
Not only that, there’s the question of meeting other surrogates but she doesn’t want to spend more time on that. However, Rainie also wants to make sure that she chooses the right person.
