Emma Harding struggles as dying Lola Pearce gets news in EastEnders | The Sun

SINCE reconnecting with her daughter Lola Pearce, Emma Harding has tried to adapt to a new life.

But next week in EastEnders, she struggles with the thought they only have a limited amount of time together.

The hairdresser played by Danielle Harold is tying up every loose end she can before her illness takes over – this includes trying to form a bond with her long-lost mother Emma Harding.

However, in scenes due to air on BBC One next week, Lola busies herself with making preparations for her charity fundraising event, which she thought about in recent scenes of the London-based drama.

Unfortunately, she's stopped dead in her tracks when the hospital ask her to come in for an early appointment.

Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) tries to hide his concerns from a panicked Lola and remains optimistic about the visit.

While in hospital, Lola gets a devastating update on her health and feels more determined than ever to live life to the fullest.

But as she prepares for the event, her mother Emma Harding (Patsy Kensit) is finding it hard to cope with the news her days are running out.

After a hugely successful fundraiser, Lola asks Emma to join her and Lexi’s girly night in.

Much to Lola's shock, Emma awkwardly declines the offer, which raises alarm bells with Jay who fears that Emma is unable to cope with Lola’s declining health.
