Billy Mitchell’s granddaughter Lola Pearce is set for a shock return to Albert Square.
Actress Danielle Harold will be reprising her role as the feisty blonde who is set to cause chaos in Albert Square.
New EastEnders boss Kate Oates, who left Coronation Street earlier this year, has put her plan into motion to revitalise the soap by bringing back Lola and introducing two other new sexy stars.
The Ahmed family will also be expanding as sisters Iqra and Habiba arrive in Walford.
Lola first appeared in Walford in 2011 after Billy found out that her dad, and his son, died.

Billy took Lola into his home after discovering that she was in care and became embroiled in a lot of trouble during her time on the Square.
Her biggest storyline was her teenage pregnancy with third cousin once removed Ben Mitchell (played by Joshua Pascoe at the time).
Lola slept with Ben while he was still trying to figure out his sexuality. However shortly after she discovered that she was pregnant, leaving Billy furious.

She later gave birth and named her daughter Lexi and the truth later comes out that Ben is the father.
Lola then tried to bring up her daughter the best way that she could but in 2014, Ben (played by Harry Reid) returned to the Square and it takes a while for them to come face to face again.
After he insisted that he wasn’t trying to take Lola away, the pair became friendly once again.
Lola left Walford in 2015 to try and make a better life for herself and her daughter in Newcastle.
Now Lola is returning, does this mean Ben might be back too?
