Major A-list actress makes dramatic return to EastEnders for Lola's emotional funeral scenes | The Sun

A TOP EastEnders star is set to make her soap comeback amid Lola Pearce's emotional funeral scenes.

Lola passed away from terminal cancer as part of a heartbreaking storyline on the BBC soap last month.

The EastEnders character's mum Emma Harding, played by icon Patsy Kensit, had previously fled Walford after being unable to cope with Lola's diagnosis.

She was banished by both Lola, played by Danielle Harold, and partner Jay, played by Jamie Borthwick, but is encouraged to return to pay her last respects.

Images released by EastEnders show Patsy's character looking nervous as she arrived at the church.

She was seen carrying a huge bouquet of flowers and glancing nervously around before she spotted Honey, played by Emma Barton, in the crowd.
