Olympic flame to visit Walford for EastEnders episode

The fictional London borough of Walford, the home of EastEnders, is to be a location on the 2012 Olympic Torch Relay route.

The flame will arrive in Albert Square on 23 July 2012 for some brief live footage during the show on BBC One.

It will be carried by long-standing character Billy Mitchell, played by Perry Fenwick.

In Tuesday night's episode, regulars in The Queen Vic will find out that the torch will be passing through Walford. But it is not until December that Billy will discover he has been chosen to carry it.
