Comedy star Ade Edmondson joined the cast of EastEnders back in June, and weve seen his character Daniel get very close to Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) in that time.

The two met on the cancer ward at the hospital, and even though they didnt exactly get off on the right foot, theyre now thick as thieves.

Sadly though, Jean is due to get some very bad news tonight…

Does Ade Edmondsons EastEnders character Daniel die?

In tragic scenes tonight, Daniel is going to tell his friend that his cancer has spread.

Jeans already had a hard enough year as it is, what with dealing with her own cancer, her suicidal son Sean (Rob Kazinsky) and the fact that her daughter Stacey (Lacey Turner) is now on the run following her attack on Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden).



Will the news that Daniels health is even poorer than she thought tip her over the edge? Should he die, would Jean be able to cope without the support of her friend?
