EASTENDERS fans were left reeling tonight when Lola Pearce told Jay Brown she is pregnant.
In dramatic scenes, the character – who already has daughter Lexi with Ben Mitchell – walked up to him brandishing a pregnancy test.
Confused by the result on the stick in her hand, she told him: “I’m taking my pill on time – I think.”
Looking happy, Jay replied: “Are you sure these things are 100 per cent accurate? So you’re actually pregnant.”
But she replied: “I love Lexi and she’s the best thing that ever happened to me – but I never thought about having another baby.”
And judging by the look on her face, she didn’t exactly look overjoyed at the news.
Fans were stunned, with one tweeting: “Loving the thought of a #Jola baby but I don’t think Lola is is she?”
Another wrote: “Jay wants the baby Lola doesn’t.”
The bombshell has been teased for days, with EastEnders explaining that Lola is about to drop a big revelation on her boyfriend.
And in coming episodes, Jay will have to square the news with grieving Ben, to avoid any conflict with Lola.
