In numbers: Tonight’s live ‘EastEnders’ Olympic insert
Ahead of this evening’s second EastEnders episode – in which Perry Fenwick (Billy Mitchell) will run through Albert Square with the Olympic torch – we’ve put together some numbers about the live segment.
When it was announced the torch would be coming to Walford, London 2012 Chairman, Sebastian Coe, said: “The announcement is a great addition to the Olympic Torch Relay Route. I’m sure the people of Walford will now start planning their celebrations. Along with people right round the UK, the residents of Albert Square will be getting involved to make this their moment to shine.”
