EastEnders most complained about moments - sick grooming plot, swearing and Covid row
EastEnders has been keeping the nation entertained since 1985.Across three decades we've grown to know and love the residents of Albert Square past and present from Ian Beale and Kat Slater to the late Peggy Mitchell and Dot Cotton.Although they provide some light-hearted entertainment, the soap also covers a range of sensitive topics from sexual abuse, bullying, eating disorders, racism and homophobia.However, not every single storyline has been well-received by viewers at home and some have even resulted in getting thousands of complaints.We're taking a look back at some of EastEnders' most complained about storylines and episodes.One of the most controversial storylines that EastEnders has ever had was in 2011.The plot saw the character Ronnie Branning swap her baby, who sadly died, for the newborn son of Kat Moon.After watching the story unfold, viewers quickly rushed to Ofcom and the soap was hit was 13,400 complaints.This was one of the show's most complained about plots across its entire history as many slammed the “distressing” scenes.People said that the scenes were an "inaccurate, insensitive and sensationalised portrayal" of cot death.However, Ofcom said the soap was not in breach of the rules when you considered the full context of the four-month storyline.In the end, the plot concluded when the baby was given back to his birth mother and Ronnie was put in prison for child abduction.An anti-vaccination row in EastEnders recently became the most complained about moment on the soap in 10 years.During an episode, which aired on March 22, viewers saw a conversation take place between Patrick Trueman, Suki Panesar and Karen Taylor.After Patrick revealed he had his second Covid vaccination, Suki replied she was due

Chinese funeral home forced to give 'disrespectful' Covid tests to dead people
China's attempts to remove all traces of Covid from the country have now taken a strange twist.A new edict from officials has been given to funeral homes, and it demands that they test the dead for the virus which is still ravaging the country.The government-backed Shenzhen Funeral Home was given the order last week, after case numbers in the city continued to be reported.Across the entire country, new cases discovered were reported to be 6,392 yesterday (May 28), with around 64,488 active cases across the entire country.Since the pandemic began, China has had more than 1.2 million cases – but only 5,226 deaths.This hasn't stopped the Chinese government from pushing ahead with its “zero Covid” policy, which is something Labour's Richard Burgon pushed for in the UK throughout the pandemic.And now a funeral home in Shenzhen has been told to test the dead for Covid.The hope is, is that anyone who tests positive will be isolated so that mourners won't catch Covid at open-casket funerals.The edict was shown to website Sixth Tone, who said: “An operator at Shenzhen’s city service hotline said they were unable to locate official documents and policies requiring a nucleic acid test of the deceased.“Shenzhen has made negative results from the past 72 hours mandatory to access public transport and crowded spaces since early April.“Such requirements sometimes resulted in tragedies for those in urgent need of medical treatment during the lockdown in other cities.”The testing of the dead policy was slammed by some online locally as “ethically and emotionally unacceptable”, while being criticised for showing “little respect to the dead”.One user on Chinese social media site Weibo wrote: “I’m not sure if I would have to wear a mask for
