Most people were informed of Danielle when she debuted her portrayal of Lola Pearce in EastEnders in 2011.

Despite leaving the show in 2015, she returned four years later in 2019 and remained on the soap opera until earlier this year. Her character was battling a terminal brain tumour and was told she only had six months to live. During her final episode on May 31, Lola tragically died in the middle of the night with her on-screen husband, Jay Brown, and daughter, Lexi Pearce, next to her in bed.

Danielle’s role as Lola gained the star a lot of acclaim as well as awards. At the 2023 National Television Awards, she won Serial Drama Performance while also taking home Best Actress at the Inside Soap Awards. At the British Soap Awards, Danielle also won Best Leading Performer.

Since her EastEnders departure, many people have wondered what Danielle has plans of doing next. Aside from entering the jungle, Danielle has already filmed Celebrity Hunted, which will air on Channel 4 in 2024.

Danielle has teamed up with Coronation Street actor Kimberly Hart-Simpson to raise as much money for Stand Up to Cancer. Her role as Lola has helped influence this choice.

“After filming Lola’s storyline, Danielle is keen to do whatever she can to help raise money for the fight against cancer,” an inside source told The Sun. “She will throw herself into the show and hopefully stay hidden long enough to beat the Hunters.”

In June, she shared photos from her time on the show on her Instagram page.

“I’m just going to leave that one out there, because it’s too funny. It makes me laugh so much, I’d hate to squash it!” she told Fabulous Magazine in September.

“I always say Jamie is the husband I never wanted or asked for, but nonetheless got. Seriously though, there’s no one like that at the moment.”
