EastEnders star Danielle Harold has spoken out on Jay and Lola’s future.
The long-time, on-off couple are back together again, after Jay came to Lola’s aid during the ruckus at the nightclub last week. While the two agreed to keep things quiet, their romance won’t stay secret for long.
Speaking about being paired with co-star Jamie Borthwick again, Harold has said: “When Lola first gets back together with Jay, obviously they’ve been through a lot of ups and downs over the years, so she just wants to make sure they’re ok before they tell Lexi and everyone else.

“She wants to see how it goes for them before everyone knows this time. But Lexi does get wind of it and finds out Lola has lied to her and doesn’t take that well at all.”
The actress explained that Lola is simply being cautious about getting daughter Lexi involved since she’s split with Jay a few times in the past.
“This time Lola is definitely sure that she wants to be with Jay and that they want the same thing. But she’s a bit cautious because they’ve been here a few times before and she just wants to be sure for herself, so Lexi doesn’t get her hopes up,” Harold said.
She then teased: “Lexi starts to pick up on things but it’s when Martin tells Lily and Lily says something to Lexi that she finds out. Lily just blurts it out and Lexi isn’t happy that she hasn’t heard it from Lola and Jay.”
Harold looked back on Lola’s past romances in the soap, agreeing with those who feel her character belongs with Jay.
“Jay and Lola are meant to be together,” she said. “It’s always been like that, even when they’ve been with other people. They always come back to each other in the end.”
The reunion is a prelude to an emotional storyline that will see Lola being diagnosed with a brain tumour as part of Harold’s exit storyline.
Soap bosses have been working with advocacy groups Macmillan Cancer Support and Brain Tumour Research to create an authentic storyline.
EastEnders airs on Mondays – Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer.
