Dales bosses praises EastEnders plot

Emmerdale's series producer has praised rival soap EastEnders for its "fantastic" handling of its bipolar storyline.

Gavin Blyth, who took the helm of the rural soap in January, said he takes his hat off to the BBC One show, even though he tries not to compare the two shows.

He told Digital Spy: "I don't tend to 'look over the neighbour's fence' to see what they're doing! EastEnders' bipolar storyline has been done fantastically well, though."

He added: "Any time a soap tackles an issue-led story but retains the truth of a character and story, you have to take your hat off to them."

In Albert Square, Stacey Slater battled bipolar disorder and was sectioned under the Mental Health Act

Her mental health problems followed her mother Jean's own struggle with bipolar.

The two actresses recently collected Mind's 'Making A Difference' trophy, awarded to EastEnders at the Mental Health Media awards.
