Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) has had an incredibly difficult couple of months in EastEnders — what with her ongoing cancer battle, not to mention the fact that daughter Stacey Fowler (Lacey Turner) has fled the Square and gone into hiding — but she’s set to receive some incredibly tragic news in tonight’s episode, as she learns that Daniel (Adrian Edmondson) has died.
Daniel’s disruptive behaviour made him something of a thorn in Jean’s side during her chemo sessions. However, overtime the pair realised that they had more in common than most, and they bonded as a result.
Over the last couple of weeks, they’ve spent quite a bit of time in each other’s company and, last week, Daniel admitted his true feelings for Jean, and the pair shared a kiss as a result. Earlier this week, they resolves to spend the day in The Queen Vic, and — while doing so — they shared yet another special moment together.
However, Jean’s world is set to come crashing down in tonight’s episode, as she receives devastating news: Daniel has died.
It doesn’t quite hit Jean at first, and Kush (David Ghadami) becomes a bit concerned about her complacent reaction to the news of her friend’s passing, and thus he decides to talk to her.
Afterwards, Jean realises just how much Daniel actually meant to her.
EastEnders continues on Thursday 10th October at 7:30pm on BBC One.
