LOLA Pearce’s exit storyline continues next week after she was diagnosed with a brain tumour.
Tristement, the procedure was unsuccessful, as doctors announced shortly after.
Lola was left with her days numbered, unbeknownst to her young daughter Lexi and to the shock of her nearest and dearest.
À la place, Ben throws himself into research for any treatment options.
Plus tard, at the hospital, everyone rallies round Lola and Callum suggests Ben moves back in with him to help support Lexi.
Lola is touched by his support and gets ready to go home.
But while her health is on the line, she asserts to her boyfriend Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) that she refuses to be coddled upon her return to Walford.
She immediately suggests that they go out for lunch.
Recent scenes of the London-based drama have shown Lola being taken to the operating block, with Jay waiting to hear news on her condition.
Lola was notably asked to give her tumour a name – which amused many viewers of the program.
The mechanic is set to take care of his other half as she gets ready to breathe her last, while her loved ones slowly come to terms with her diagnosis.
Fans were shocked to find out that Danielle Harold would be bowing out of the soap after more than a decade.
For her final storyline, EastEnders bosses have worked closely with Brain Tumour Research and Macmillan Cancer Support for it to be portrayed as “realistically and as sensitively as possible.”
The date of Lola’s final scenes has yet to be confirmed but Danielle Harold is said to still be on the Elstree Centre set.
The soap usually shoots episodes six to eight weeks in advance and fellow soap stars such as Danny Dyer have been filming their own Christmas storylines.

This could mean Lola won’t be waving goodbye until after the New Year.
EastEnders airs from Monday to Thursday at 7.30pm.
