EastEnders’ Danielle Harold discusses wedding setback as Lola rushed to hospital

EastEnders star Danielle Harold has opened up about her character Lola Pearce's major setback as her wedding day finally arrives.

The actress, 30, has played the granddaughter of Billy Mitchell for 12 years and is set to say goodbye to the role as Lola battles a terminal brain tumour.

Shortly before she discovered her illness, Lola reunited with Jay Brown and they decided to get married.

But things get off to a worrying start when Lola appears unwell, leading her and Kim to make an emergency dash to the hospital.

Danielle revealed: "In the morning when Lola is getting ready, Kim notices a nosebleed which really panics Lola and makes her realise how unwell she is. From this, they make the decision to go to the hospital."

It becomes clear that Lola is hesitant to marry Jay and Danielle explained the reasons why.

"I think Lola feels so overwhelmed, as would any bride on her wedding day," she said.

The star added: "When she realises she’s ill, she’s already dressed and they are really up against it on timings so Kim suggests they stop by the hospital on the way to the wedding to get Lola checked out.

"Once Lola is there in the moment, she has a realisation when everyone turns and stares at her dressed in her wedding dress in the A&E waiting room, and that’s when all of those emotions start to bubble to the surface."

Will Lola be able to overcome her emotions and walk down the aisle?

Next week, EastEnders spoilers can reveal that Lola finally decides it's time to tell Lexi that she is dying.

Discussing her sweet relationship with her on screen daughter, played by Isabella Brown, Danielle admitted how "proud" she is of her co-star as she plays a vital role in the hard-hitting storyline.

“She has just been amazing, she’s great and we all love her to bits!," she gushed. "I’m honestly so proud of how she’s dealt with the story and how sensitive she is with it, it has been so lovely to watch and work alongside."

Danielle continued: "She’s so well behaved on set because she knows how important the story is and how we’re using our scenes to raise awareness for such an important issue. She’s my little rock, and she supports me every day.”
