As EastEnders celebrates its 30th anniversary this week by going live, one Albert Square resident will be live tweeting as the action unfolds.
Fans can follow the thoughts of Tamwar Masood – submitted at various points by Himesh Patel who plays him – during the live elements of each episode via EastEnders‘ Twitter and Facebook pages.
“Tweeting in character is a first for me – but I think I know Tamwar well enough and I’m looking forward to giving the world his unique perspective on things as they unfold.” – Himesh Patel
The soap will also be venturing into new territory for BBC television with exclusive, live Facebook Q&A webcasts at Elstree studios following Tuesday and Thursday’s episodes.
EastEnders live week commences tonight at 7.30pm on BBC One and will see live scenes inserted into pre-recorded editions until Thursday with Friday’s episode being fully live.
