Celebrating Mickey Mouse’s 90th anniversary, stars of the BBC soap will bring to life classic Disney characters in the Square.
The medley – EastEnders’ most dazzling yet – includes an added sprinkle of Disney animation and special effects bringing extra magic to the scenes, including an incredible flying carpet, as Tilly Keeper (Louise Mitchell) and Zack Morris (Keegan Baker) take on the roles of Jasmine and Aladdin.
“It was a dream come true to be a Disney Princess for Children in Need! We had so much fun filming the performance, it was such a special day. Let’s hope we all raise lots of money on the night for this fantastic charity.” – Tilly Keeper
There will be songs such as Friend Like Me from Aladdin with Lorraine Stanley (Karen Taylor) performing as Genie, whilst Jessie Wallace (Kat Moon) will entertain viewers with an unforgettable rendition of Let It Go from the much loved Frozen.
Also, not to be missed, Shona McGarty (Whitney Dean) delivers a breath-taking performance as Belle from Beauty and The Beast with Davood Ghadami (Kush Kazemi) as Gaston and Nitin Ganatra (Masood Ahmed) as LeFou.
The musical performance culminates with Letitia Dean (Sharon Mitchell) interacting with the ‘True Original’ Mickey Mouse in a bid to share the magic!
“Never in a million years did I think I would be playing Aladdin as I danced round Albert Square. I had so much fun and I really hope it helps to raise lots of money for BBC Children in Need.” – Zack Morris
Viewers will be able to watch the medley on 16th November during BBC Children in Need’s 2018 Appeal Night, airing from 7.30pm on BBC One.
