Lola decides to finally tell Lexi that she's dying in EastEnders

And when Emma befriends Lola, will she reveal her true identity?

When Lexi feigns illness to stay off school, Lola is concerned and Ben takes her in, but soon receives a call to pick her up.

It transpires that Lexi wants to be with Lola 24/7 until she’s better and she decides it’s time to be honest and tell Lexi that she’s dying and braces herself to break the news.

When she does, the news hits Lexi like a ton of bricks, but instead of crying, she demands to go back to school, furious that Lola lied to her.

After school, Lola’s mum Emma approaches Lexi in the playground and after some comforting words to her oblivious granddaughter, Emma heads to Fox & Hair, where she books an appointment for tomorrow and specifically asks for Lola.

When Lola starts back at work, she welcomes new client Emma to her chair. When she doesn't recognise her own mum, Emma doesn't let on their true connection.

Before the appointment, Lola starts to feel unwell, and Denise steps in, explaining that she’s got some health problems. Later, Emma gets a shock when she watches Lola’s latest vlog.

Returning to Fox & Hair on the pretence of needing a nail appointment, Emma quizzes Lola and as they discuss her vlog, Lola lets slip that a girl at school has been nasty to Lexi about the videos and upset her.

EastEnders continues Mondays to Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One
