EastEnders has paid tribute to Neighbours’ 30th anniversary by filming a special Aussie-flavoured sequence in Albert Square, renamed Ramsay Square for the occasion.

The tribute comes a month after Neighbours recorded a Cockney tribute to celebrate the British soap turning 30.

Adam Woodyatt (Ian Beale) said: “We couldn’t let the Neighbours 30th anniversary pass without celebrating, especially after the great tribute they did for us last month. Everyone at EastEnders absolutely loved it. So from all of us in Albert Square to everyone in Ramsay Street, have a very happy birthday.”

The EastEnders tribute, set to the jaunty Neighbours theme tune, marks the key differences between the two soaps – with mordant dark humour.
