EastEnders to get set extension

Share article:

"EastEnders" is reportedly set to get a set expansion.

The long-running soap - which has been on air since February 1985 - is set to get a new tube station, a high street and more shops in a bid to improve storylines.

A source told the soap-obsessed news site Walford News: "The houses will actually be made of brick and the buildings will be bigger instead of the fake fronts that are used today. They will be adding a high street, a new tube station and many more shops creating new characters and bigger storylines."

The BBC are reportedly planning to splash out £15 million on the new set and are hoping to get the construction underway in the early part of 2020.

The site claimed: "Fans will see a brand new Queen Vic, Launderette, and Cafe. Currently, the only places they film both inside and out are The Minute Mart, Ian Beale's fish and chip shop, the pharmacy and the arches."

When the original set was built, it was only meant to last for six months but, more than 30 years later, Albert Square is still standing and, although bosses aren't planning to knock it down and start from scratch, they would like to improve the aesthetics.

Actors filming outside their character's homes are usually whisked through a studio door to shoot the scenes inside, but producers would like to change that so that sets can exist from within to make filming even easier and smoother.
