News > Eastenders cast in Queen Tribute

Added on 08-Nov-2011

Actors in the English soap opera EastEnders have recorded a special Queen sketch that has been recorded for charity Children In Need.

Stars from the Walford soap recently filmed a musical tribute to the iconic band on the show's Albert Square set to help raise money for this year's charity appeal.

Cast members involved included Adam Woodyatt (Ian Beale), who dressed up as a housewife in the style of Freddie Mercury in the video for 'I Want To Break Free'.

Speaking of how he prepared for the shoot, Woodyatt revealed: "I went on YouTube and had a good look at the original video as it's so long since I've seen it. I mean everyone's got a rough picture in their head of what was in it, but I wanted to get a few pointers in the right direction - like how to hoover because I haven't got a clue!"

Asked whether he liked his costume, the actor replied: "It was quite disturbing and I really don't look that attractive as a 46C, and I can definitely see why spanx were invented!"

Marc Elliott (Syed Masood), John Partridge (Christian Clarke), Matt Lapinskas (Anthony Moon), Lindsey Coulson (Carol Jackson) and Cheryl Fergison (Heather Trott) were among the other stars involved in the shoot.

EastEnders fans can see the special sketch when Children In Need airs on Friday, November 18 from 7pm on BBC One.

Brian's wife was a long time member of the East Enders cast - playing Angie.
