EastEnders spoilers: Jean Slater fears she will die before Mo returns
Jean Slater’s (Gillian Wright) worry she has terminal cancer is slowly starting to take over her life in EastEnders.
The character went to the doctors but ran out before she was updated on her condition and has now convinced herself her cancer has returned.
Thinking her illness is terminal, Jean has chosen to not have treatment and soon she’ll start to think she’ll die before Mo (Laila Morse) returns.
Mo announces she’s been invited on a cruise with Fat Elvis. When Jean asks why she isn’t going, Mo admits it’s because of her – there’s something not right with Jean and she’s worried.
Jean catches Mo acting shifty around the garage as a police car pulls up on the Square.
The thought of saying goodbye to Mo hits Jean and she mutters to herself that she may not be around when she returns, and Zack (James Farrar) overhears.
Later in The Vic, Jean is agitated by what Mo has revealed to her, as Zack watches on, clearly concerned.
As Mo exits the Square, Zack asks Jean what she meant earlier.
Jean shrugs him off and asks if he can help her – but will Jean let him?
Could Jean tell Zack about her cancer worries?
