EastEnders viewers are baffled by Bailey Baker’s absence as the Baker family grieve for Chantelle Atkins.
Here’s the lowdown on Bailey’s whereabouts…
Where is Bailey in Eastenders?
EastEnders fans are confused by Bailey’s absence as the Baker family continue to grieve for Chantelle Atkins.
When the family arrived home from their holiday to the shocking news of Chantelle’s death, they broke down over the awful discovery.
As the family reeled from the news, Mitch decided he needed to speak with youngest daughter Bailey – who was staying with another family member – to tell her the news in person.
It’s likely Bailey’s absence is thanks to new safety rules and regulations following the soap’s return to our screens back in September.
The soap had been off our screens since June thanks to the pandemic.
And when the cast returned to filming, the number of people allowed on set at any one time drastically reduced to allow the soap to adhere to social distancing measures.

EastEnders fans were gutted that Bailey wasn’t able to attend Chantelle’s funeral, and were baffled by her absence on the soap.

Another added: “Where is Bailey gone that makes me think. #EastEnders“
A third fan tweeted: “I wish Bailey, Mia and Mackenzie could attend the funeral #EastEnders.”
