How will Lola react to Isaac’s health confession and will it cause her to end any hopes of a romance between them?

Discussing Sheree’s influence over her son, Stevie said: “I think he’s always resisted Sheree getting involved in his business, especially his love life. 

“He’s a bit more protective over Lola because he really likes her and he trusts that he can be himself with her – so there’s really no need for Sheree to worry. 

“She continually interferes and Isaac reaches a point where he’s had enough and lets her know.”

He explained Isaac’s furious with his mum’s constant interventions and added: “He’s really angry and frustrated by that point because he’s warned Sheree before and told her to back off.

“But the fact she’s gone behind his back to potentially scare Lola off, he’s really upset. 

“He doesn’t understand why she won’t allow him to make his own decisions, he’s quite capable of looking after himself. 

“When it comes to Lola, he feels like she’s great and understanding and the world has moved on from how Sheree might feel about things.”

EastEnders continues on BBC One on Thursday at 7.35pm.
