It is with EXTREME EXCITEMENT that we report that the Olympic flame will be passing through Walford LIVE ON 23 July 2012, carried by one Billy Mitchell and cheered on by the residents of Albert Square.

In the episode on Tuesday 15 November, Walford discovers that it will be one of over a thousand communities that will host the hallowed flame. Check out the clip below.

Perry Fenwick aka Billy says: ‘When we first discussed the storyline, my initial thought was that I’ll now have to get fit! While this may be a fictional one-off for Billy Mitchell, it’s a real once in a lifetime opportunity for me and I am thrilled that Walford and Albert Square will be part of this amazing event.’
