Intruders break into EastEnders' Albert Square set and film themselves in the Queen Vic


Intruders broke into the Eastenders Albert Square set and filmed themselves in the Queen Vic while the studios remained idle during the closure.

As you enter the legendary pub in the BBC soap's Elstree Studios in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, you can hear the cameraman joking: "Guys, we're going for a beer."

The trio looks at some props in a room in the back of the pub before the person filming says, “This is crazy. I can't believe we're on the Eastenders set. It is literally 5 a.m. & # 39;

Then they look around the minute at Mart's candy and pass Walford East before they are spotted by a security guard.

After they have run away, they are confronted by two security guards and accompanied by the construction site.

The group, which sneaked into abandoned theaters, police headquarters, and a power plant, decided to explore the set while it was quiet during the closure.

A source told The Sun: “They had the freedom of the place, filmed in the shop, in the pub and walked around the square.

“But the soap security team clocked it and didn't take it from the construction site long after.

"They jumped over the barriers and ran before the police arrived."

Production of BBC One & # 39; s veteran soap stopped in March when Britain came to a standstill and most people were instructed to stay at home and work from home if they could.

In such circumstances, however, the soap could not be made and was put on hold – with episodes worth only a few months in the can that could be broadcast.

The cast has returned to the set in the past few weeks and production of new episodes has resumed, but these will not yet be ready to air.

Instead of the episodes of Monday and Tuesday, a new series called Secrets From The Square is shown, which is moderated by Stacey Dooley.

BBC One will also reveal iconic past episodes and pamper fans with nostalgia for the time being.

The soap will return later in the summer and return to its shipments four days a week that have been scrapped to find out the rates in the can.

But the show returns with shortened episodes and not with the usual half-hour slots. They will be 20 minutes long at first.

The show's executive producer, Jon Sen, previously said: & # 39; Resuming production is incredibly exciting and equally challenging.

“Since we postponed filming, we've been working on test techniques, filming, and new ways of working so that we can go back to the screens four times a week – as EastEnders should.

"Filming will inevitably be a more complex process now, so if we create 20-minute episodes, we can make sure that when we return, EastEnders is still the show that audiences know and love."
