EastEnders' Lola deteriorates as she's given heartbreaking news by doctors

Lola Pearce will deteriorate next week on EastEnders as she's given heartbreaking news by doctors.

In the Square next week, Kim organises a karaoke party for Lola at the salon but as her anxiety continues to get the best of her, she forgets to hire a karaoke machine. Elaine saves the day with a top of the range machine after bonding with Ben.

It all becomes too much for Lola and she heads outside to get some quiet time. Panic ensues from all of the residents - including Denise, Honey and Kathy, as they realise Lola is missing and make an urgent search for her.

They are horrified when they find a very confused Lola outside the gym and quickly take her home rest. When at home, Lola is struggling when she notices that there is some sort of impairment with her speech and mobility.

Billy and Jay suggest she heads to hospital and after being assessed by doctors, a weak Lola is devastated to find out that her palliative chemotherapy treatment isn't working - and Jay's keen to make every moment count from now on.

Jay decides he wants to break Lola out of the hospital and plans a trip to the seaside with her to make all the memories she can.

She spots a ruby necklace, and is keen to buy it for Lexi for when she turns 16. However, it's £60 and she can't afford it.

Lola and Jay sit by the sea, looking out over the waves, as they chat about things. However, their heart to heart ends moments later when they go to leave and are interrupted by the arrival of a police officer. It transpires that she stole the necklace.

Earlier this year, actress Danielle Harold explained how much the storyline means to her.

She wrote: "Lola’s story has been a very hard one to tell and one that means so much to me and sadly affects so many people.

"Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer yet historically only 1% of research is allocated to this devastating disease. I would like to take a moment for everybody that has reached out to me and shared their experiences with me. I have read every message and hold all of your messages close to my heart whilst playing this story."
