EastEnders has confirmed when Lola Pearce's final episode will air.

Lola has recently been told that she has only weeks to live, after learning that her palliative chemotherapy treatment hasn't had the desired effect.

New teaser spoilers have now seemingly confirmed that Lola will pass away on Wednesday, May 31 as Jay faces "the most difficult moment of his life".

At the start of the week, the focus will initially shift to Billy, who struggles to cope during his granddaughter's final days.

Billy's emotions eventually get the better of him, leading to dire consequences. Jay is also feeling the pressure as he learns about Ben's latest move. As the Walford residents rally round the family, Kim will stage a beautiful surprise for Lola.

Meanwhile, George Knight will arrive in Walford at the end of the week in question, with his daughters Gina and Anna in tow.
