Here are some interesting facts about Eastenders.

  • Eastenders is not the original name of the series which was going to be called ‘Square Dance’, ‘Round the Square’ or ‘London Pride’. We think they made the right choice.
  • The Watts family was the first family to live in The Vic and they are some of the most memorable characters to have ever graced our screens. But their original names were going to be Jack, Pearl and Tracey. We think ‘Dirty Den’ has a better ring to it!

  • E20 is the postcode of Albert Square and it was one that was made up by the show producers, However after the Olympic Park was built in Stratford in 2011 they took on the iconic postcode as their own.
  • In total there is over 2500 hours of Eastenders episodes which means you could spend a third of the year binge watching the series.
