shows to mark the soap’s 30th an­niver­sary.

The an­niver­sary of the BBC soap will in­clude one 30-minute live episode and “live el­e­ments” in the other pro­grammes.

Top Beeb con­troller Char­lotte Moore said: “BBC One will bring the na­tion to­gether to cel­e­brate 30 years of EastEn­ders by go­ing live on an­niver­sary

And now the 45-year-old thesp is forced to ogle world-class BREASTS in TV’s most boob-filled show. Here he is balls-deep in his

The long-run­ning soap marked its 25th an­niver­sary in 2009 with its first ever live episode when it was re­vealed Stacey Bran­ning (Lacey Turner) had mur­dered Archie Mitchell (Larry Lamb).

BBC drama boss Ben Stephen­son said: “After a cap­ti­vat­ing year of drama in 2014, EastEn­ders will top this in Fe­bru­ary 2015 with the most am­bi­tious an­niver­sary that any soap has at­tempted.

“With shock­ing re­veals and unguess­able twists it’s go­ing to be a week that will change Al­bert Square for­ever.”

The live week starts on Mon­day, Fe­bru­ary 16.
