EastEnders security breach as 'trespassers break into set'
Two trespassers are reported to have gained access to the EastEnders set on Monday, streaming the break-in online for thousands to see.
The duo are said to have snuck into Albert Square, and were subsequently pursued by security guards.
They made it to the roof of the BBC One soap’s iconic pub The Queen Vic, where they pretended to re-enact the death of former main character Bradley Branning.
An EastEnders spokesperson declined to comment on security matters when contacted by Metro.co.uk.
Last year, a group of trespassers broke into the EastEnders set during the first national lockdown.
The trio also filmed themselves while doing so.
While there, they entered The Queen Vic, and one of the three attempted to emulate Peggy Mitchell by shouting ‘Get out of my pub!’
The Sun obtained video footage, and reports that the most recent stunt was organised by streaming team Littlest Live In The South.
‘It beggars belief that this illegal activity has been advertised beforehand as sport for online viewers’ entertainment,’ A BBC source said.
EastEnders has been dropping new episodes on the BBC iPlayer each and every Monday since Euro 2020 commenced, and since then it has been streamed over 20m times.
Viewers can continue to get their Walford fix whenever best suits them as episodes will, for the time being, continue to premiere on the streaming service until the end of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
This will no doubt come as a treat to fans of the BBC One soap who have been enjoying dipping in and out of Albert Square whenever they choose.
