EastEnders fans will get to see the return of some of the show’s most famous characters for one night only as part on an exclusive sketch to air on the BBC Children in Need Appeal show extravaganza on Friday 14th November 2014.
Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) is in for the shock of his life when he is knocked unconscious and visited by some infamous ghosts from his past. Ian is astonished to find his adulterous, home-wrecking ex-wife Cindy (Michelle Collins) in his kitchen; Pat (Pam St Clement) and her notorious earrings are running The Queen Vic; his mum Kathy (Gillian Taylforth) has a surprising new love interest and he has a touching encounter with his daughter Lucy (Hetti Bywater) whose killer is still on the loose.
Talking about working with Gillian, Pam, Michelle and Hetti again Adam Woodyatt said, “It was one of the best days I have ever had at work. I never thought I would see the day where I was reunited with Gillian, Pam, Michelle and Hetti so to work with them all again and for such a great cause was an absolute dream. As soon as we got on set it was like none of them had ever left.”
Talking about taking part in the sketch Gillian Taylforth said, “It was an honour to take part in this sketch for BBC Children in Need. Not only is it for a fantastic charity that helps so many disadvantaged children and young people but it meant I got to revisit EastEnders.”
Will Lucy be able to give Ian the answers he’s looking for and will he wake up in time for Monday night’s EastEnders episode? Tune into the BBC Children in Need Appeal show to find out.
