Ex-EastEnders boss says Walford should flood if EastEnders ever ends

Share article:

John Yorke says the River Thames should flood Walford and the rest of London if there is ever a finale of the soap.

The BBC One show's former boss would like the programme to go out in dramatic circumstances if the corporation ever pulled the plug on the show - which scooped the Soap and Continuing Drama prize at last night's (12.05.19) TV BAFTAs - but admits he is "hopeful" that won't be anytime soon.

He said: "I'd have the Thames flood all of London - that would do it.

"Hopefully it won't happen."

The show certainly doesn't seem to be coming to an end anytime soon, and Davood Ghadami - who plays Kush Kazemi - admits the stars of the soap are filled with excitement every time they are handed a new script.

He is so keen to find out what happens in the various plots he cannot resist heading straight to the "doof doof" moments to see each episode's conclusion before reading his own lines.

Speaking in a backstage video on the BAFTA Twitter account, he said: "We sit there in reception and you can see us all opening the brown envelopes going, "What's happening this week?"

"It is exciting every week.

"You look straight at the doof doof and work back.

"You look at everyone else's storylines and see what everyone else is up to. And from that point on you cannot wait to get on set and film it and see how it all goes."

"EastEnders" - which first began in February 1985 - beat off stiff competition from "Casualty", "Coronation Street" and "Hollyoaks" to land the coveted prize at the TV BAFTAs.
