EastEnders fans were heartbroken as Jean Slater's cancer has come back on the soap.

The character has battled cancer in the past, but made a full recovery.

However, in tragic scenes at the end of Thursday's episode, Jean revealed her cancer was back.

It was her birthday, and Jean was filming a video message seemingly for her family.

She told them she didn't want treatment this time, as she wanted to choose how she spent her "last few months.

Jean said she didn't need a doctor to check it, as she knew from a new lump that she had it again.

She explained in the moving scenes: "The cancer is back."

"I know. I don't need tests and results to tell me. I can feel it", she continued.

Jean added: "So I'm giving myself the best birthday present ever. I don't want you to get cross, but I've decided to not have treatment this time.

"Don't get angry at me. I've thought about it and I can't, I can't, I can't go through all that again. I don't want to"

She added: "I just want to spend my last few months the way I choose. I love you all so very very very much. I know you love me. So just let me do this, okay?"
