EastEnders airs surprise lesbian kiss between Tiffany and Bernie
Fans were ecstatic after Tuesday night’s EastEnders episode featured a surprise lesbian kiss between Bernadette “Bernie” Taylor and Tiffany “Tiff” Butcher.
The two EastEnders characters locked lips after EastEnders’ Tiffany Butcher (Maisie Smith) admitted she had been delivering drugs in a heated conversation between the pair.
Tiff claimed she was not a dealer and only dropped off the drugs as a favour for friends.

Bernie (Clair Norris) then threatened to tell on her best friend, but Tiff said she would have to go back to Milton Keynes if that happened.
Bernie told Tiff she “wouldn’t let go” until Tiff stopped delivering drugs.
Suddenly, the two characters shared a passionate lesbian kiss.
EastEnders fans on Twitter were shocked by the kiss.

Fans accuse EastEnders‘ Tiff of manipulating Bernie
However, many social media fans said that Tiff was using Bernie.
“Poor Bernie being totally used by Tiffany #EastEnders,” one wrote.
Another said: “Tiff only did that because she knows Bernie likes her and knew it would get her what she wanted. #EastEnders.”
One person wrote: “Hate that Tiff is just using Bernie, she is too nice to be hurt like that! #EastEnders.”
And a fourth user posted: “Master manipulator, Tiff. She’s used Bernie’s crush to her advantage there. Savage! #EastEnders.”
It’s not the first time Bernie and Tiff have had a lesbian kiss.
In the show, Bernie, her brother Keegan Baker, Tiff and a few others broke into E20 out of business hours to have a few drinks and honour their late friend Shakil Kazemi, who was killed in a knife attack on Albert Square.
During their get-together, Tiff ended up smooching Bernie when she was dared to by her mates during a game of Spin the Bottle, despite being reluctant, calling them “little pervs” and saying she wasn’t going to do it just “to give [her friends] a cheap thrill.”
