BBC EastEnders bosses cast ITV Emmerdale star Patsy Kensit as ‘Lola Pearce’s mother’

BBC EastEnders Bosses have confirmed that former Emmerdale and Holby City star Patsy Kensit will be joining the soap’s cast in the coming months.

The 54-year-old actress will join the cast “for a short time” before Christmas as she is rumored to be Lola Pearce’s mother following her terminal cancer diagnosis.

The Sun newspaper reported that she will have a role in “one of her biggest current storylines” and is set to join the soap opera at Christmas.

Viewers were devastated by Lola’s brain tumor diagnosis, played by Danielle Harold.

In emotional scenes last week, Jay Brown, Ben Mitchell, Billy Mitchell and Honey Mitchell vowed to be with Lola “every step of the way.”

Lola’s estranged parents have barely been mentioned since joining the soap opera in 2011, but BBC bosses seem ready to delve into the character’s past following her devastating diagnosis.

It was previously reported that Kensit said she would “love to” do EastEnders and play a “strong matriarch” like Peggy Mitchell, who was played by the late Dame Barbara Windsor for 22 years.

Kensit told the Radio Times in 2019: “My father was involved in organized crime in the East End, so I grew up around bad guys and that kind of background.

“And I can have a beer and say, ‘You’re banned’.” BBC EastEnders bosses cast ITV Emmerdale star Patsy Kensit as ‘Lola Pearce’s mother’
