EASTENDERS fans are stunned after a nurse asked Lola Pearce a bizarre question about her brain tumour.

The hairdresser – who is played by actress Danielle Harold in the BBC soap – is currently in hospital after being diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer.

Lola prepared for surgery for her tumour on tonight’s episode

Lola’s tragic storyline is breaking fans’ hearts

In tonight’s episode, a nurse was trying to make Lola feel better about potentially losing her hair during treatment for her tumour when he revealed some bizarre information.

Lola was waiting for surgery to assess her tumour.

He told her: “This is your pink drink, under the UV lights it will highlight the tumour. Do you have a name for it?”

As Lola looked confused, the nurse added: “For the tumour. Boris and Keir are pretty popular. Eric too but I’m not too sure on that one.”

Viewers were stunned by the scene naming tumours after former Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer.

One fan clearly found the moment hilarious, and retweeted grabs of the moment, prompting a follower to ask if it was real or not.

A second said it was the “best line ever”.

But another appreciated the sweet scene, and added: “Bless this nurse. He’s soo much better than the first Doctor Lola and Jay saw”

HOAR exclusively revealed earlier this year how actress Dannielle had been told that Lola was being killed off.

The BBC soap has announced it is working alongside Brain Tumour Research and Macmillan Cancer Support to tackle the storyline.

As HOAR exclusively revealed in June the storyline will follow Lola, played by Danielle Harold, as she and her loved ones come to terms with her diagnosis.

The BBC One soap has worked closely with two leading cancer charities to ensure the storyline is portrayed as “realistically and as sensitively as possible”.
