EastEnders raise the dead for spooky special

Soaps are no strangers to resurrecting the odd character, but this time they are literally bringing the dead back to Albert Square.

In a Children in Need special, Ian Beale is going to be haunted by deceased characters close to him including Lucy Beale, Pat Butcher, Cindy Beale and Kathy Mitchell.

"We are getting some of the show's most iconic names back for one night only,” an inside source reported.

“It's going to be historic. All the characters have a link to Ian Beale and they are going to come back to haunt him in scenes that will feature his past and present."

The details haven't been officially confirmed, but a spokesperson for the soap explained:

“We don’t want to confirm the exact details just yet as we don’t want to spoil the surprise, but this is one Children in Need Eastenders viewers will not want to miss.”

It sounds like an interesting watch!

The episode will air on November 14th at 7pm.
