The EastEnders cast to perform Grease for Children in Need dance spectacular

Danny Dyer, Kellie Bright, Shane Richie and Nitin Ganatra are among those playing the T-Boys and Pink Ladies

The EastEnders cast has been pictured rehearsing for their Grease megamix dance routine that is set to air as part of this year’s Children in Need event.


Performers including Danny Dyer, Kellie Bright, Nitin Ganatra, Jessie Wallace will be dancing to hits from the 1950s-set musical for the 2014 charity fundraiser.

The event brings to life an ambition held by Kellie Bright that she first disclosed to Radio Times back in June. Speaking about her character Linda Carter’s fashion sense, the actress said:

“Her disco pants are quite uncomfortable on a hot day! She dresses completely differently to me, but I love her look. She really is a Pink Lady through and through. We have to do a mock Grease some time. Danny could be Danny and I’d be Sandy. We should do it for Children in Need.”


As well as the medley, former EastEnders cast members Gillian Taylforth, Michelle Collins, Hetti Bywater and Pam St Clement will return to haunt Adam Woodyatt’s Ian Beale for a special mini episode.
