Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold) and Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) got married in emotional EastEnders scenes, celebrating their union with their closest family and friends.
It was touch and go for a while, with bride-to-be Lola adamant that she couldn’t go through with the wedding due to her terminal brain tumour, making it clear that she wouldn’t put Jay through having to look after her.
Jay, however, made it quite clear that he would be by her side for the rest of her life, reiterating that he loves her and that he wants to marry her. Lola, taken aback, decided to go through with the ceremony, and the young couple tied the knot.
There was soon tension, however, as Lola found out that Jay knew of Billy Mitchell’s (Perry Fenwick) plot to track down her mum Emma Harding (Patsy Kensit), horrified to think they went behind her back again.
Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth), however, came to the rescue, offering Lola some advice, reminiscing about the mistakes she’s made with her own children – including daughter Donna Ludlow (Matilda Ziegler) – before telling the bride to allow her loved ones the opportunity to look after and protect her.
And with that, Lola returned to the Vic, where she enjoyed an emotional first dance with new husband Jay, swaying to an Eric Clapton classic.
Lola subsequently said a few words about Billy, branding him her mum, dad and granddad all rolled into one.
After an evening surrounded by her family and friends, she returned home with Jay, where they cuddled up in bed together, determined to make the most of every second.
