Fans of EastEnders are quick to the mark with their eerily accurate theories and predictions and they might just have done it again. Some believe Lola Pearce’s (played by Danielle Harold) mum Leanne will soon make an appearance in Albert Square, but will her presence be welcomed by her estranged daughter?

The character of Lola was first introduced back in 2011 when her step-grandfather Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick) and then-girlfriend Julie Perkins (Cathy Murphy) decided to track down Dan Pearce, the son she had given up for adoption. After finding out Dan was dead, they learned that he had a 15-year-old daughter named Lola, who had been taken care of.
Lola ‘s mother has never been seen on-screen and, despite being listed many times, it doesn’t seem that anyone knows where she is or has been for most of Lola ‘s life. But is it ultimately time after all this time for her to track down her daughter?
A Reddit user sparked massive rumors that after proposing various options for fans to pick from if they were in charge of the scripts, Leanne might actually make an appearance.
The options included who you would introduce, bring back, soap axis, and who should be at the center of future storylines.
Lola ‘s mum popped up a surprising amount of times from different viewers who wanted to put a face on the name.
The Reddit quiz master suggested that if BBC executives actually got her in, she would be played by the actress Kim Tiddy in The Bill.
It would answer many questions about Lola ‘s upbringing too. The tearaway was in prison by the time she was brought to the soap and after moving with Billy to Walford she created mayhem here, there and anywhere on the square. Targeting almost anyone who spoke against her, she was landed in more trouble by her erratic behavior than we care to remember.
But now she’s a mother, she’s got a good job and settled down with boyfriend Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) and she seems happy and happy with her life-aside from the hearing problems of Ben Mitchell. But could Leanne bear bad news?
Producers generally only introduce an unseen character from past experience when there is a reason for it. Some fans even speculated that Leanne could also be the mother of the Callum and Stuart Highway brothers (Tony Clay and Ricky Champ), whose mum we have not met before.
The announcement will also shake the world-Lola also has a daughter Lexie, along with her cousin Ben, who is a boyfriend of Callum.
