EastEnders' Ben Mitchell star teases 'bleak' future as he deals with loss of Lola Pearce

Last year, BBC viewers were heartbroken when they learnt Lola Pearce (played by Danielle Harold) had been diagnosed with an incurable brain tumour.

Although she’s been receiving palliative care for the end of her life, which she recently learnt hasn’t worked, Lola has decided to make the most out of her final moments with her family.

However, it looks as though her decisions going forward aren't accepted by the whole family as Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) struggles to come to terms with the reality of losing her.

In upcoming scenes, Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) starts to prepare for Lola to come home, which doesn’t go down with Ben who thinks she shouldn’t leave the hospital.

Struggling to accept her prognosis, Jay later lashes out at Honey (Emma Barton) and Billy (Perry Fenwick) as he accuses them all of accepting what’s happening to Lola too easily.

Although Jay decides Ben’s behaviour has gone too far as he decides to confront him at the Arches.
