EastEnders spoilers – Showrunners have an excellent backup strategy in place
Kate Phillips is the Controller of BBC Entertainment and had this to say about the show’s backup plan, “EastEnders has been at the heart of BBC One since its inception 35 years ago. While going off-air was never in their plan, we and the EastEnders team knew straight away that this would be the perfect opportunity to celebrate the show, look back on cherished memories of all those momentous episodes whilst taking a look around Albert Square and they may just give us some teasers as to what’s to come when they return.”
