Ben Mitchell visits Lola Pearce

Ben Mitchell doesn't want to give up on fighting for Lola Pearce Brown in Wednesday's episode of EastEnders (7:30 pm. see our TV Guide for full listings).

Ben Mitchell has always been insistent on fighting for Lola Pearce Brown, even after the doctors told her that her brain tumour would be fatal. 

He went on a mission to find her the best treatment but now it's clear nothing can be done to stop the rapid progression of her cancer, he is in shock.

Determined not to give up, even though there's no hope, he lashes out at Lola's granddad Billy Mitchell and his partner Honey Mitchell, accusing everyone of giving up on her.

Not able to deal with Ben freaking out, Lola's husband Jay Brown confronts him over his behaviour, but it only riles Ben even more. 

It takes some wise words from Ben's dad Phil Mitchell about his own struggles with him mum Peggy Mitchell's cancer to snap Ben out of his mood.

Feeling guilty for adding to the familly's woes, Ben visits Lola to apologise for how he's been behaving.

Although it seems he's finally  come to terms with Lola dying, there's still a part of him that can't accept it. He calls Dr Washington and asks for her help in making sure Lola will live for at least another few months.
