What could Ben announce?

Lola Pearce takes it upon herself to push the former lovebirds back together as she invites Callum (portrayed by Tony Clay) to watch her daughter Lexi perform at a pageant.

However, the police officer declines, desperate to avoid an awkward run in with Ben (Max Bowden).

Since the breakdown of their marriage, Callum first rejected Ben, believing he had been unfaithful.

But as time has gone by and he realised Ben had actually been raped by Lewis Butler, Callum tried to rekindle their marriage.

Ben refused, believing Callum deserved better than him and only wanting to focus on healing from his past trauma.

In later scenes, both Ben and Callum attend Lexi’s pageant – before the former realises he has some troubling news to share.

But just as he’s about to open up, Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) interrupts them in a haste with some bad news of his own.

Before Lexi’s performance, Lola was hit with another dizzy spell and collapsed due to a seizure.

Ben and Jay rush to the bathroom to find Lola on the floor.

The pair act quickly and phone an ambulance and eagerly wait for an update.

This is the time Ben chooses to share his news with Callum – what will he say?

Whatever Ben has to announce could be overshadowed by tragedy.

As announced by soap bosses, actress Danielle Harold is set to leave EastEnders after portraying Lola Pearce for a decade.

Her on-screen alter ego is set to be killed off at the end of a gut-wrenching storyline.

Next week, following her collapse, doctors will tell Lola a tumour has been found and her life will be on the line.

EastEnders airs from Monday to Thursday on BBC One.
