NEWS ROUNDUP: Olympic Torch On EASTENDERS, Justin Deeley Out At 90210, Liane Balaban Joins SUPERNATURAL

EASTENDERS star Perry Fenwick nervous over Olympics role
Viewers will see the actor's hapless alter-ego Billy Mitchell hold the Olympic torch live in a special episode of the BBC1 soap later this month.

Fenwick, 50, told the Radio Times: "I come in of a morning and do a few laps of Albert Square. I basically want to find every pothole so the crew can fill them in. I've started thinking, 'God, it's not far away now'. I've been having these bizarre actor/athlete dreams where I've got no trousers on or I'm tripping up. It's a weird blurring of fiction and reality."

Is Binge-Watching TV Bad?
"I’m not saying that you must watch a show when it originally airs in order to fully enjoy it. Catching up on shows after they’ve aired is the only way anyone could keep pace with all the good TV out there these days. But there’s a proper way to do so, one that maintains the integrity of the art form."
