    Emmerdale viewers have been left fuming after Bernice Blackstock recently found out she is going through menopause.

    The Dales resident has been experiencing symptoms and has been telling everyone in the village, which means some fans quickly became fed up with her repetitive dialogue.

    Viewers turned to Twitter to complain about her and many complained that she was "acting like she had a terminal illness".

    One fan tweeted: "Bernice – Christmas 2032 – 'It's so hard when you're going through the menopause. Did I mention I was going through the menopause? [Because] I'm going through the menopause'."

    Another wrote: "Bernice, playing the menopause card to death!"

    A third also added: "Bernice is doing my head in. I get that the menopause is a significant milestone in any woman's life and that it comes [with] difficulty. But she's talking and acting like she's dying! She [should] be grateful it's not cancer, dementia, heart disease or any other serious illness!"

    One scene saw Bernice sit down in the café and discover a joker from a deck of cards, which she appeared to take as a "sign".

    She began referencing tarot cards and believed that the card had been "left there for her" as she explained that a joker is similar to a "fool".

    Elsewhere in the soap, a new romance storyline has been confirmed for Gabby Thomas.
