If this wasn’t bad enough, her prison time could leave her unable to be with dying son Paul Foreman (Peter Ash) in his final moments.
Bernie recently revealed that she could be facing up to six months behind bars, after the judge explained that her history meant she had to be handed a custodial sentence.
With Paul having been told that he only has between six and twelve months left to live following his MND diagnosis, there is a chance he could pass away while she is locked up.
Because of this, Bernie is determined to make the most of every moment she has left with her son, and soon the family take steps to make sure that can happen.
In a new spoiler video, Christmas comes early for Bernie in the form of some familiar carol singers.
