SoapWeek: EastEnders

EastEnders: Secrets From The Square: Next up to reveal all to Stacey are Albert Square originals Gillian Taylforth and Adam Woodyatt, who play mother and son Kathy and Ian Beale. The pair – who call each other ‘Mum’ and ‘Son’ off-screen – tell all about their unique working relationship and 35-year friendship, and why it wasn’t unusual for Adam to turn up at Gillian’s house for food at 2am.

They each reveal their own stories behind Ian and Kathy’s biggest scenes – from Gillian’s nerves whilst filming Kathy’s shock return from the dead to the real reason Adam had to wear a hat throughout Ian’s homeless storyline. Adam tells the story of their very first meeting back during rehearsals in 1984, Gillian reveals who Kathy’s favourite son is, and the duo relive a classic ‘Doof Doof’ from the show’s early days. Plus, the pair tease what’s in store for Ian and Kathy when EastEnders returns in the Autumn.

Stacey also gets an exclusive tour of 45 Albert Square – better known as the home of the Beale family, and formerly the Fowlers – where the trio reminisce about some of the biggest moments to have taken place on the iconic set.

EastEnders: Secrets from the Square, Monday at 8pm on BBC One.
