EastEnders confirms when Lola will die as her final episode date is revealed

We’ve known the day is coming, but now, EastEnders has confirmed when Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold) will die.

The beloved character was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year but recently, she was given the heartbreaking news that she only has weeks left to live, rather than months.

This prompted Lola to seize the day and so she took off out of the hospital with Jay (Jamie Borthwick) after being given the news, for one final trip to the seaside.

The couple enjoyed food and drink, walking by the sea, and reminiscing about when they first met.

Sadly, every conversation Jay and Lola had was tinged with sadness as they knew their future is never going to look like how they imagined.

With a new teaser confirming Lola will be allowed to return to Walford and continue receiving care from the comfort of her home, her health will sadly deteriorate rapidly within the next few days, with it looking as though she will die on May 31 – when Jay faces ‘the most difficult moment’ of his life.

While it hasn’t been confirmed that Lola will die then, the start of the week strongly focuses on Billy (Perry Fenwick), Ben (Max Bowden) and the rest of Lola’s family and friends.

Not only that, but we also know that EastEnders cast and crew were spotted filming emotional funeral scenes – meaning it won’t be long until we see those on our screens too.

Speaking to The Sun about her final scenes, Danielle described it as ‘the most beautiful episode of EastEnders’, but revealed that it took her a long time to pluck up the courage to read it.

‘I didn’t want to read my final script,’ she revealed.

‘We pick them up from the script desk if we are in work and my final ones were sat there for ages!

‘They kept asking me if I’d taken them yet, and I was like, “No, I don’t want to”.

‘I left them there until I was ready.’

‘It was the hardest thing to read but it’s also the most beautiful episode of EastEnders I’ve ever read.’

Following Lola’s death, EastEnders has also planned a celebration of her life, which they are calling Lola-fest.
