EastEnders spoilers: Jean Slater to be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in heartbreaking storyline

JEAN Slater is going to develop ovarian cancer in a new hard-hitting EastEnders storyline.

The cleaner – who is played by actress Gillian Wright in the BBC soap – will have her health tested by the disease as she battles it as well as her mental health issues.

Jean is going to face an upsetting cancer battle

In a statement Gillian said: “I’m aware of the impact such stories can have. It’s important that we treat the issue of cancer diagnosis and treatment with huge sensitivity, dignity and respect.

“I hope the story helps awareness of the disease and is supportive to those affected.”

EastEnders boss Kate Oates added in a statement published by the Daily Mirror: “I know an actor of Gillian’s calibre will approach the story with great truth and depth.

“The Slaters are an amazing ensemble family and this story is a completely fresh subject for them to tackle. I know they will do it justice and raise awareness of such an important issue that affects so many people.”

Kate previously teased a health battle for Jean, hinting that the story would actually be the best thing ever to happen to Jean because it brings her son Sean back to Walford.

She said: “We’ve got a big story coming up for Jean.

“She’s going to have a challenge coming her way where we look at her mental health through the lens of her physical health. So I’m excited about that one too.”

However, Kate also said how it would potentially have some happiness within the harrowing plot, and fans are convinced this means this is why Sean returns to see his mum.


Kate added: “Jean’s going to have a bit of a new challenge coming her way that she might find it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to her.

“So there’s some fun stuff to challenge her there, along with Lacey [Turner].”

Actor Robert Kazinsky is making his return to the soap for a brief storyline after more than a decade away.

Game of Thrones Deployed a ‘Thing That Kills Drones’ to Save You From Spoilers. What Is That?

Sounds like the Game of Thrones crew is absolutely willing to go to extreme measures to prevent season 8 spoilers.

According to Sophie Turner—who plays Sansa Stark on the HBO drama—the production team deployed “drone killers” to disable any camera drones attempting to capture footage of the show’s sets during filming for the final season.

“If a drone flies above sets, there’s a thing that can kill the drones, which is really cool,” she told Entertainment Weekly during an appearance at New York Comic-Con. “It creates a field around it and the drones just drop. It’s very X-Men.

However, these so-called “drone killers” are special electronic devices that are typically used by police to force drones to the ground in the event of an emergency, not keep fans from learning the fate of Jon Snow.

“The purpose is primarily for emergency situations,” Oceanside police Lt. Aaron Doyle told the Los Angeles Times. “It won’t be used when someone complains about a neighbor flying a drone. It’s pretty much for a life-or-death situation, to save lives.”

‘Venom’ Director Spills on All Those Big Spoilers

SPOILER ALERT: Be warned, this article contains big spoilers about Venom. Proceed at your own risk.

Venom has officially arrived, and like most comic book movies, it came with its share of surprise reveals and telling Easter eggs. We asked director Ruben Fleischer about what the movie’s biggest surprises mean for the future of the franchise, and here’s everything we found out.

Yep, That Is Definitely Carnage in the Post-Credits Scene

In the big post-credits scene, Eddie Brock, his journalism career restored, interviewed an enigmatic inmate played by none other than actor Woody Harrelson. In case the rumors didn’t give it away, the shock of bright red hair and pointed use of the word “carnage” made it official: Serial killer Cletus Kasady, aka Carnage, will find his way into a potential Venom sequel. “What’s so exciting about [Venom] and this world is that it can really go anywhere,” Fleischer told FANDOM of the big Carnage reveal.


Venom, Carnage, Spider-Man

Who is Carnage, and why is he a big deal? In the comics, Eddie Brock met serial killer Cletus Kasady in jail, where Kasady was serving eleven consecutive life sentences. When the Venom symbiote tried to break Brock out of prison, it gave birth to another symbiote. This baby symbiote bonded with Kasady, creating the creature Carnage. Yup, comics are weird.

This bond heightened Kasady’s instability, and Carnage went on a murderous rampage all over New York City. Carnage is a true villain and shouldn’t be taken lightly — it’ll be interesting to see how he fits in with Venom’s humorous PG-13 world, especially with Woody Harrelson driving.

That Dead Astronaut Might Be an Important Spider-Man Link

In Venom, one of the astronauts killed upon re-entry into Earth’s atmosphere had a very familiar and possibly important last name: Jameson. You probably know J Jonah Jameson as the Daily Bugle newspaper editor constantly shouting for more pictures of Spider-Man in Sam Raimi’s Tobey Maguire-led movie trilogy. You might also remember that in 2004’s Spider-Man 2 Jameson’s son John, an astronaut, was engaged to Mary Jane Watson before she left him at the altar.


Venom, Spider-Man

In the Venom comics, the Jameson family has a more superhero-centric backstory. J Jonah Jameson’s son, J Jonah Jameson III, was a NASA astronaut who later became the character Man-Wolf — a very fancy kind of space werewolf. The quick ‘Jameson’ reference in Venom is our first reference to the family since Tom Holland took over as Spider-Man in 2017. Could this mean a more connected Venom/Spider-Man universe?

When asked about Jameson, Fleischer didn’t rule anything out. “Who knows where this will all go, but we tried to lay the groundwork for some intersecting worlds, and I think it’s exciting to imagine the possibilities of really exploring all of these different directions.”

We Could (and Should) Get More She-Venom

One of the best moments in Venom was Anne Weying’s brief appearance as She-Venom. When asked about her portrayal of Anne, actor Michelle Williams told FANDOM that she wanted Anne to be “a woman who was empowered and believed in her own worth enough to ask for respect and equality.” What could be more fitting equality than getting a symbiote alter ego of her own?

We asked Fleischer if we might see more of Anne as She-Venom in the future, and his answer gave us a lot of hope: “Nothing is ruled out.” We know that Michelle Williams is down to take on the role in a larger capacity, and we’re certainly ready to see more She-Venom, so yes, let’s do this.


Venom, She-Venom

Fleischer continued, “One of my favorite moments is the appearance of She-Venom, albeit brief. That is certainly a character I would like to spend more time with and would be excited to see where she goes in the future.” And considering Anne got a heavy make-out session with Eddie while she was taken over by Venom, is a twisted love triangle on the table now? Only time will tell.

Venom is in theaters now.
