It’s all getting very fraught in Albert Square at the moment, what with Ben Mitchell’s surprise arrest for the murder of Lucy Beale.
But Ben’s best friend Jay will try to, ahem, relieve the tension next week when he turns to Lola for support. After Jay reveals to Lola that he fears that the focus of the police investigation will soon turn on him, she tries to reassure him that everything will be OK.
But Lola’s words of support will lead to a passionate moment when she and Jay end up sharing a kiss. But will the kiss lead to anything? Hopefully, not where it led to last time they kissed when a flustered Lola walked straight into the path of Ronnie Mitchell’s car!
However, it doesn’t look like there can be anything long-lasting between Jay and Lola. After all, actress Danielle Harold’s upcoming exit from EastEnders was announced last month.
