Kim, EastEndersEastEnders cast and crew yesterday filmed an extra scene to be added into tonight’s show celebrating Andy Murray’s Wimbledon triumph.

The extra scene will see Kim Fox tell Jay Brown she is considering renaming the B&B Wimbledon Palace after Andy took the title on Sunday beating Novak Djokovic in straight sets 6-4, 7-5, 6-4.

A show insider said today: “Everyone at EastEnders is thrilled for Andy. There is a buzz in Britain similar to what we saw during the London Olympics.

“As soon as he won we knew we would have to reference it in the show so we’re thrilled to add this extra scene.”

Andy Murray - Wimbledon VictoryThis isn’t the first time a news story has been referenced by EastEnders shortly after the event.

Last summer during Britain’s glorious Olympics campaign a scene between Jean Slater, Tyler Moon and Ray Dixon saw them discussing how brilliant Team GB are and how proud they feel to be living in London.

The soap also referenced the death of pop icon Michael Jackson in a scene airing shortly afterwards in 2009.

You can see the added in Andy Murray scene on BBC 1 at 7:30 tonight.
