Torch relay goes through Eastenders set


The Olympic torch has been carried through the TV set of soap opera Eastenders.

The flame went through Albert Square carried by Billy Mitchell, played by Perry Fenwick.

Normally the soap opera is pre-recorded but the moment when Billy Mitchell ran around the square was live on BBC One.

The people running next to him were the real torch protection team - not actors like the rest of the cast.
