EastEnders filming has been halted since March due to the coronavirus pandemic, but last month BBC bosses confirmed that they hope to resume production in the coming weeks.
Charlotte Moore, the broadcaster’s director of content, said EastEnders would be up and running again within weeks, along with Top Gear, with limited crew members and cast asked to do their own hair and makeup.

Moore told The Telegraph: ‘We’ve been looking carefully at how we can safely put some of our shows back into production, and I’m pleased to announce that we plan to begin filming again on both EastEnders and Top Gear by the end of June.
‘We’re also exploring ways to restart shooting on dramas and other major BBC shows.’
She added: ‘Of course, we will work within Government guidelines. Crews will be strictly limited. Cast members will do their own hair and make-up.
‘Social distancing will be in place.’
