Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold) and Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) of EastEnders struggle with money issues, just like many of us.
Things feel desperate after just getting back from their honeymoon, but neither member of the married couple wants to worry the other.
Instead, they ask friends for assistance one at a time, unaware that they are addressing the same person!
They each go to Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) separately to ask for assistance.
Ben has been a rock for them both ever since Lola was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year.
He isn’t hesitant to assist them because he has known Jay for a long time and is the parent of Lexi, Lola’s daughter.
Along with Ben, the two now have Lola’s mother Emma Harding (Patsy Kensit) as a support system.
To make up for all the time she and Lola had spent apart, it was Emma who gave them the money for the trip.
Although it has recently come to light that Lola’s abusive father drove Emma to leave her abusive marriage, she abandoned Lola when she was a small child.
Grandad Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick), who was sceptical despite the fact that Lola could not be purchased by Emma flashing her money, was able to win Lola over.
Not only Lola and Jay, but also the Slater and Taylor families are having to make financial sacrifices in Walford.
Will Ben’s assistance enable them to resolve their issues?
