Sharp, cocky yet loveable Lola Pearce, 15, is living in care when Billy and Julie finally track her down. Lola has been deserted by everyone in her life, a feeling that her grandparents know only too well. With an instant bond, it isn't too long before the troublesome teen follows them back to Walford.
But is Albert Square ready for the petite bombshell?
Lola will be played by 18 year old Danielle Harold. Danielle said: "I am so excited to be joining EastEnders. I have watched the show all my life and I never thought that one day I could be in Albert Square. It feels strange to be walking round Walford with people I have grown up watching, I still have to pinch myself."
How do you think Lola will affect the dynamics of the Square? Leave your comment below...
