EastEnders viewers were delighted to see the residents of Albert Square celebrating the women’s victory at the Euro’s on Sunday after BBC bosses scrambled to film last-minute scene
Following the last-minute filming of a sequence featuring some of Walford’s regulars celebrating England’s success in the Euros on Sunday, viewers of EastEnders are praising BBC executives.
Just one day before tonight’s program aired, England’s women’s football team won a significant international competition for the first time in more than 50 years.
Show executives scrambled at the last minute to fit in an extra segment celebrating the victory at Queen Vic, leaving fans happy.
“Eastenders cast must have been working late last night #euros #WEURO2022 # EastEnders,” one admiring watcher gushed.

The program has previously accompanied the nation’s reaction to a significant football game.
