EastEnders icons Sharon Mitchell and Ian Beale, actors Letitia Dean and Adam Woodyatt, drop into Albert Square for more Secrets gossip
Sharon Mitchell and Ian Beale – aka actors Letitia Dean and Adam Woodyatt – head to the EastEnders set to chat to Stacey Dooley in EastEnders: Secrets From The Square on Monday (8 pm, see our TV Guide for full listings).

Adam and Letitia tell tales of their early days on set – including being sent home for giggling – and the couple relive their attempt at ‘80s pop fame. Also, Adam looks at a scene that turned him into an internet meme and Letitia explains why a nailed down coffin gave her a shock!
Super fan Stacey discovers which cast member is most like their character in real life. Plus Adam treats Stacey to a tour of the Square’s famous ‘caff’, revealing which actor broke the café till…
Taking fans right up to the present, Letitia discusses her take on the recent juicy Sheanu love triangle plot. She and Adam tease what’s in store for their characters when the show returns.
While EastEnders takes a break, fans will get their Monday night Walford fix with this entertainment series replacing the regular episodes. EastEnders will return with brand new episodes later in the year.
EastEnders replacement programming continues on BBC1 on Tuesday at 7.30 pm.
