The two EastEnders favourites decided to get back together after spending years apart, and decided it would be more exciting not to tell anybody they have reunited. However, Lola’s (played by Danielle Harold) cunning daughter, Lexi Pearce (Isabella Brown) soon finds out her mother’s secret, and isn’t happy about having been lied to.
EastEnders fans were surprised when unlikely couple Jay (Jamie Borthwick) and Honey Mitchell (Emma Barton) recently called it quits after being in a relationship for a couple of years.
Viewers were shocked when the two first got together, because Honey had been like a stepmother to Jay while he was growing up.
It seems both have realised they’d rather be with their respective exes, though, as Honey and Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick) have reunited, and now Lola and Jay are also back together.
After waking up together on Tuesday’s episode, Jay and Lola discussed their relationship.

“When are we going to tell Lexi about us?” Jay asked Lola, keen to move forward.
“Not for a bit, let’s keep it quiet, yeah?” she replied, adding: “I mean, she’s going to get excited and tell everyone isn’t she?”
A disappointed Jay remarked: “You said you were ready.” To which Lola argued: “I am.”
She continued: “It’s just this is new. I am in, I’m totally in, but how about we keep it a secret?
“It just keeps it more exciting, doesn’t it?” Jay reluctantly agreed.
Jay debates cancelling his date with Amber, but leaves it too late and Martin arrives, raring to go.
At Peggy’s, Amber takes a shine to Jay and Lola soon turns up to witness their interaction.
Jay makes an excuse to leave and goes to see Lola, suggesting they tell everyone about them being together.
Meanwhile, Sam spots Zack watching Martin and Jay on their dates and suggests he stays after his shift for a drink.
Sam is touched when Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) suggests Ricky Mitchell (Frankie Day) spends the day with her, but when she struggles to entertain him, Zack steps in.
Jay and Lola tell Martin they’re back together but ask him to stay quiet, unaware Lexi is growing suspicious.
Lily Slater (Lillia Turner) later offers Martin some words of support, but he lets slip about Jay and Lola.
Unaware it’s a secret, Lily congratulates the couple in front of Lexi, leaving the youngster furious that they kept it from her.
The schoolgirl warns the pair they will need to make it up to her.
Will Lexi decide to forgive the two for remaining quiet about their relationship?
If not, she may cause some issues for the pair as they get to grips with being a couple again.
It seems they will already have some tragic news ahead, as EastEnders has confirmed Lexi will be diagnosed with an incurable brain tumour.
After learning from keeping their relationship a secret, will Jay and Lola decide to come clean to Lexi about the terrible news early on?
It seems the family are in for a very tough time – will they share their terrible news with the Square or decide to keep it between them?
EastEnders continues on Monday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
