The BBC has released the full EastEnders mini episode that saw show stalwart Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) haunted by Kathy (Gillian Taylforth), Cindy (Michelle Collins), Lucy (Hetti Bywater) and Pat (Pam St Clement) for Children in Need.
Speaking to Radio Times about the sketch, Woodyatt said recently: “Kathy and Cindy both died off-screen, so for years I’ve been coming up with ways to bring them back. Anything can happen in the world of soap. I thought it was quite plausible when Leslie Grantham returned as Dirty Den. The trouble is, to do that again would be pushing the boundaries. But what they’ve done for this sketch is joyous. Filming it was one of my best days at work.”
You can watch Ian being haunted by the spectral quartet below. And beneath that, there’s also a chance to see the cast perform their special tribute to Grease, which aired earlier in the evening and saw the likes of Danny Dyer and Shane Richie perform hits from the iconic musical.
