Lola was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in the final scenes of the BBC One soap opera after weeks of suffering from migraines.
Next, she prepares for her first radiation therapy appointment after her brain surgery was unsuccessful.
But while her closest friends and partner Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) all know about her prognosis, Lola is still keeping it a secret from her young daughter Lexi.
While Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick) takes her to her appointment and clearly struggles with it, Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) doesn’t feel comfortable keeping Lexi in the dark.
