Lexi struggles to open up following Lola's death in EastEnders

Can Ben and Jay manage to get Lexi to talk about her mum?

Having sold The Arches, Ben focuses all his attention on Lexi who's finding it hard to open up. Taking her for ice cream, Ben tries to get her excited about going to see Callum, but all Lexi wants to do is go home to Jay and get into bed.

Callum advises him to brave the subject of Lola and to allow grieving Lexi to talk about her mum.

After an emotional afternoon with Lexi, Ben and Jay encourage the grieving girl to talk about her mum and their efforts help Lexi to finally open up.

Later, Jay invites Kim and Billy over to share out more items from Lola’s memory box with Ben. As his friends try to give Jay the strength to go on, it’s clear he’s faltering in the midst of this all-consuming grief.

EastEnders continues Mondays to Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One
