The soap's bosses are working with Brain Tumour Research and Macmillan Cancer Support to make sure they get the storyline correct.

She said: "I was so nervous when they first told me because it’s such a big story and the plans they have are so big.

"And because of the issues surrounding it, and all those people who are going through it at the moment, it really got my heart going."

She added: "I just want to do it as best I can for people going through it and their families."

Danielle added that she hopes that the storyline will help awareness of the condition and that it may spur more research and funding into finding treatments.

Fans are convinced Lola will die before the end of the year after seeing a framed photo of the Walford resident in a recent flashforward scene.
