‘Sharon and Ian’ confirmed for EastEnders: Secrets from the Square

EastEnders’ longest serving residents ‘Sharon and Ian’ will be guests on new BBC One spinoff series, EastEnders: Secrets from the Square.

EastEnders super fan Stacey Dooley sits down for a chat with two of EastEnders’ original cast members, Adam Woodyatt and Letitia Dean, aka Ian Beale and Sharon Watts. The pair reflect on starting out on the show together as teenagers, revisit classic scenes (and classic hair dos) and share their best backstage stories. They also tease what’s in store for Ian and Sharon when the show returns.

Together they recall the time when as teenagers they were sent home from set for giggling, relive their failed bid for Top of the Pops glory, and Letitia gives her take on the recent ‘Sheanu’ storyline. Adam rewatches a scene that made him an internet meme, Letitia explains why a nailed down coffin gave her a nasty surprise, and Stacey finds out which cast member is most like their character.

Adam also gives Stacey a VIP behind-the-scenes tour of the café, revealing which actor is responsible for their broken till.

Catch it on Monday 29 June at 8pm on BBC One. The infamous ‘Sharongate’ episode will air the next evening.
