EastEnders will kick off 2015 with the launch of EastEnders: Back to Ours exclusively on BBC iPlayer.
The online show will relive some of the most iconic moments from the soap over the past 30 years in the company of the stars who appeared in them. Confirmed to take part are Shane Richie & Jessie Wallace, Diane Parish, Tameka Empson & Rudolph Walker and Himesh Patel & Nitin Ganatra with more names to be announced soon.
The cast members will rewatch their character’s most unforgettable scenes in their on-screen homes and share their memories and behind-the-scenes moments. The series will feature clips from the show’s 30 year run.
Shane Richie adds “What a wonderful time I had sitting on the sofa with Jessie watching 12 years of Kat and Alfie. We laughed, we cried and we giggled as we remembered the past 12 years.”
Victoria Jaye, Head of TV Content for BBC iPlayer said “Commissioning ‘Back to Ours’ builds on the success of BBC iPlayer exclusive EastEnders programmes that feed audiences’ excitement around the show’s biggest story-lines and moments. It doesn’t get much bigger than the 30th Anniversary, so we’re delighted to offer the millions of fans who enjoy EastEnders on BBC iPlayer each week, this exclusive treat.”
The series will begin in early January in the run up to the live anniversary week in February.
