Bernice Blackstocks hopes of stopping the clock have dire consequences in Emmerdale.
Bernice is desperate to stop the aging process and puts herself in grave danger in the quest for the perfect look.
After having a melt down at her 50th birthday where she destroyed all of the decorations that revealed her age, Bernice decides she needs to go to drastic measures to feel better about herself. She orders Botox from the internet and recruits Kerry to help inject it. Leanna watches on as Kerry administers the stuff into Bernices face.
But things quickly take a dark turn when Bernice starts to suffer a reaction to the toxins. She finds herself unable to breathe and begins to panic, and Kerry rushes her to A&E. A doctor explains shes suffered an allergic reaction and Liam is left fuming with Kerry for her stupidity.
But things get worse as Bernice is left unconscious and in intensive care.
The doctor has more devastating news over what her internet Botox might have permanently done to her face. Will Bernice survive? And if she does, could she be left disfigured?
