When discussing the aftermath of Lola's death earlier in the year, show boss Chris Clenshaw said: "I don't think any of them will be the same again – Billy, Jay, Lexi, Honey. It'll obviously have devastating consequences for the family.

"Lola asked Jay to make sure that he always talks to Lexi about her, and she put things in place for the immediate future.

"Billy, Jay, Lexi and Ben all pull together and are there for each other in the immediate future, but that won't last forever.

"Jay will find friendship with another key person."

EastEnders airs on Mondays - Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer.
