Olympic flame lights Fat Boy's fire


The Olympic torch relay has been woven into the BBC One series EastEnders as "Fat Boy", played by Ricky Norwood, decides to start training to be a torchbearer.

The torch relay will pass through the London boroughs before arriving at the Olympic Stadium in Stratford for the opening ceremony on 27 July next year.

About 8,000 torchbearers are being sought around the UK, each of whom will run 300m before passing it to the next runner.
