On the Tuesday night episode of EASTENDERS, the soap referenced the success of Team Great Britain so far in the London 2012 Olympic games.
In a scene that was filmed earlier in the day on Tuesday, Jean, Tyler and Ray discussed how well Team GB is doing, and how proud they felt living in London.
Watch the episode below:
“Following EASTENDERS involvement with the Olympic Torch Relay we are delighted to have the opportunity to reflect the current sentiment of the entire country," said executive producer Lorraine Newman. Team GB have made so many people truly proud to be British and we wish them continued success.”
The scene was inserted into the 7:30 p.m. Tuesday night episode on BBC Two.
This isn’t the first time scenes have been added to EASTENDERS. Previous examples include Michael Jackson’s death, Obama’s Presidency and the 2010 Elections.
