EASTENDERS‘ Lola Pearce has just about enough of people getting involved in her relationship with Isaac Batpiste.
She sets her sights on Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) after he asked Peter to check in on her, following her visit with Isaac (Stevie Basaula) mental health unit.
It comes as Isaac’s mum ,Sheree (played by Suzette Llewellyn), is not happy to hear about her son being trolled online.
She’s never been 100% behind Isaac’s relationship with Lola (Danielle Harold) and now she’s set to use her latest discovery as an excuse to split the couple up.
Teacher Isaac (Stevie Basaula) is currently in a mental health unit recovering from a schizophrenic episode.
When Amy uploads a social media post on mental health, parents at the school leave nasty comments calling for Isaac to be sacked.
Meanwhile Lola has been continuing her visits to Isaac, which Sheree is more than a little surprised to hear of.
Sheree then goes on to tell Lola to break up with Isaac, persuading her that it’s the right thing to do.
On a return visit to see Isaac, Lola breaks the news to him.
But things get worse for Lola when she drops some of Isaac’s stuff to his house and Peter asks her how’s she doing.
She tells him about breaking up with Isaac and then Peter lets slip that Ben put him up to it so she leaves.
Unimpressed, Lola confronts Ben about his meddling.
EastEnders has been working with the mental health charity Mind on the storyline.
Speaking about it, actor Stevie Basaula recently said: “This is close to my heart, to be telling Isaac’s story is a privilege.
“I hope it will start a dialogue for people to have conversations about mental health and that anyone living with the condition will feel seen.
“Working with Mind has been so useful, I spoke to a young man who bravely shared his story and it was inspiring to learn how he’s managing his condition.
“There’s so much we think we know about schizophrenia, but it’s often not the reality for people living with the condition.”
