After finding out that she has stage three ovarian cancer, Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) made a devastating decision to leave the Slaters house. She did not want to put any more pressure on her daughter, Stacey Fowler (Lacey Turner), while she also struggles to accept her situation.
Jean put on a brave face, but she left her daughter heartbroken. EastEnders spoilers, however, reveal that she will have more problems to face, as Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) wants her out of the Queen Vic.
