    To celebrate EastEnders’ 30th anniversary in February 2015, we’re breaking the mould, pushing the boundaries and GOING LIVE! Over the course of a week every episode will have live elements, plus one entire episode will be played out live. Did we mention we’re going LIVE?!

    Live Live

    This special week will give a nod to the past and welcome the future. We’ll be tying up big storylines and kick-starting new ones.  Charlotte Moore, Controller of BBC One, told us: "Next February will mark a massive event on the channel by creating the ultimate ‘doof doof’ and finally revealing who killed Lucy Beale.”


    Our own Executive Producer, Dominic Treadwell-Collins, is excited about the “fantastic opportunity for EastEnders to create a massive national event - and one that will enable us celebrate 30 years of EastEnders in spectacular style.  With live elements to each episode, as well as a half hour live episode, it allows us to have a huge amount of surprises for the audience. It is ambitious and exciting and something I know everyone at EastEnders will excel at as they always do.”

    Karl Howman is set to join EastEnders later this year.  We're keeping tight-lipped about who Karl is playing and what is in store for his character, but they have teased that from the moment he arrives on screen, he is set to cause a stir for a few residents of Walford.

    Karl Howman

    All we can reveal is that there is a lot in store for Karl's character; he’s playing a loveable rogue but there seems to be a lot more than meets the eye.

    Speaking about joining EastEnders, Karl told us: “It is an honour to have joined such an iconic show as EastEnders and I have received such a lovely welcome from all involved. They are truly one big family with a work ethic to be in awe of. The twists and turns, character and plots that are coming make it all the more exciting for me.”

    Dominic Treadwell-Collins, Executive Producer added: “We have been trying to get the brilliant Karl Howman to join EastEnders for a very long time - and it’s fantastic that it’s finally happened. An authentic Londoner with grit, sparkle and a touch of danger, Karl is the perfect fit for this new character, whose appearance on the Square will open old wounds and reignite old passions…”
