EastEnders films huge fire scenes for stunt episodes

EastEnders is set to air dramatic stunt scenes later this year as cast have been spotted filming what looks like a major fire.

Smoke was seen billowing from the set as sirens were heard. Numerous fire engines were also spotted on the Square, as well as ambulances, suggesting that several lives are in peril.

Danny Dyer, who plays Mick Carter, was also seen taking a break from filming but there is no suggestion or confirmation that he is central to the stunt.

It can’t be confirmed how big scale the episodes will be or whether characters live or die but the timing of filming would suggest that the storyline will air around September.

Metro.co.uk has seen images of the smoke and emergency services and a source said: ‘When we bought our house, we had no idea how close we are to the EastEnders set!

EastEnders is set to air a number of big storylines in upcoming weeks as Janine Butcher (Charlie Brooks) makes a huge and long awaited return to the show around the same time. The Panesars are also said to be central to the action over coming months.

Meanwhile, Chelsea Fox (Zaraah Abrahams) finds herself drawn closer to killer Gray Atkins (Toby-Alexander Smith) while Mick and Linda Carter (Danny Dyer and Kellie Bright) try to conceal their baby lie.

An insider added to Metro.co.uk: ‘The explosion is really the start of a massive autumn for the show that will take them through the rest of the year.

‘With the arrival of Ross Boatman’s character and the return of Janine, both who have huge stories in store, not to mention some huge stuff from the Pa

At the moment, boxsets can be watched at the start of each week as schedules are all over the place due to football coverage.

The last major event stunt on EastEnders saw a boat crash which killed off young Dennis Rickman and prior to that, spectacular crash scenes saw a final exit for Mel Owen.
