EastEnders 25th anniversary

EastEnders

Friday 19 February on BBC ONE

For the first time in its history, EastEnders will be beamed live to the nation's screens this week in celebration of its 25th anniversary. Over the years the show has brought some of the most notorious characters and memorable moments in British soap history to the small screen.

 

There have been many magical matrimonies which have captured the hearts of millions of viewers, many a surprise new arrival and much grief and sadness over the Square's dearly, and sometimes not-so-dearly, departed. Here, Programme Information takes a look at the births, deaths and marriages during the last 25 years in the London Borough of Walford.
