Torch relay goes through Eastenders set

24 July 2012 Last updated at 06:42 BST

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.
