It's a case of baby blues for Carrigstown's Kerri-Ann, as she struggles to come to grips with being a new mum in tomorrow's episode of Fair City.

Kerri-Ann, who was revealed to have killed Karen O'Neill earlier this year, shocks husband Decco when he returns home to find her ignoring the cries of their baby daughter, Samantha.

In desperation, Decco pleads with a counsellor to visit Kerri-Ann.

This does little to solve the problem, as her anxiety peaks when Olivia arrives at the Bishops' house.

Kerri-Ann breaks down over her fear the baby will be taken away.

Actress Jenny Dixon, who plays Kerri-Ann, has hinted that viewers are in for a turbulent few weeks with Decco and his troubled wife.

"There's so much more drama ahead. It's a very fast-paced story and viewers may want to fasten their seatbelts for the next few weeks," she said.

"Things are far from idyllic and far from the world Kerri-Ann has always hoped for.

"We actually get a glimpse into why Kerri-Ann has been so fixated on having a perfect family, white picket fence and baby bliss.

"It's a fascinating back story which I hope the viewers will enjoy as much as I did shooting it."

Jenny said that Kerri- Ann finds herself on an emotional roller coaster, with a lot on her mind as the date for her to go to prison edges closer.

"She wonders what's actually best for baby Samantha - to bring her to prison or to leave her with Decco for that first year," she said. "It makes for many more great stories coming up."
