EastEnders spoiler for today May 24, 2023: Ben spirals and takes action for Lola | The Sun

BEN Mitchell is struggling with the thought of losing Lola Pearce to a terminal brain tumour.

The EastEnders mechanic spirals out of control tonight on BBC One. But can his father Phil Mitchell get through to him?

Accepting Lola's tragic fate has been no easy feat for her loved ones but Ben (played by Max Bowden) is failing to keep his emotions in check.

In recent scenes of the London-based program, Ben was adamant that it was too early for Lola to return home following her stay in hospital.

The hairstylist only has weeks to live and her loved ones have been hellbent on making as many happy memories with her as possible.

Ben, on the other hand, lashes out at Honey (Emma Barton) and Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick) tonight as he accuses the family of accepting Lola’s prognosis too easily.

Lola's husband Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) is having none of Ben's outburst and soon confronts him at The Arches, which leaves the troublemaker furious.

Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) later steps in to speak to Ben about his mother, Peggy, and he implores his son to stop being selfish.

Will Ben really listen?

Later on, the family gather in Lola's bedroom for another emotional moment.
