Popping the question!

With excitement in the air, one Albert Square resident decides the time is right to propose. But who’s asking the big question and what will the answer be?

“I’m thrilled to be making my first appearance on EastEnders and in the most iconic pub in the UK,” said Olly. “I’m so happy I got to meet some true screen legends and spend time on set with the brilliant cast and crew. I wanted to surprise my mum as it’s her favourite show but I guess the cat is out of the bag now, she’s gonna love it!”

“When we discovered that Olly Alexander was a huge fan of the show and an opportunity arose in one of our stories, it was the perfect moment for us to invite him to Albert Square,” said executive producer Chris Clenshaw. “We hope the audience enjoy Olly’s special guest-appearance as much as everyone at EastEnders enjoyed having him in Walford.”

But will Olly’s appearance in Eurovision be as much of a hit as his cameo in EastEnders is going to be? We’ll have to wait and see!
