Shane Richie (Alfie Moon), Jessie Wallace (Kat Moon), Diane Parish (Denise Fox), Rudolph Walker (Patrick Trueman), Nitin Ganatra (Masood Ahmed), and Himesh Patel (Tamwar Masood) are all set to take part in the Gogglebox-style show.

"We laughed, we cried and we giggled as we remembered the past 12 years"

The show will watch our soap favourites sitting in their on-screen homes on Albert Square, parked in front of their telly boxes.

And, as they watch their most iconic scenes, they will share their own memories, behind-the-scenes anecdotes, and reactions to events unfolding before them.

Just like Gogglebox, essentially - but with a fun EastEnders twist!

Speaking about his experiences filming the spin-off, Shane Richie said: "What a wonderful time I had sitting on the sofa with Jessie watching 12 years of Kat and Alfie.

"We laughed, we cried and we giggled as we remembered the past 12 years.”

Victoria Jaye, Head of TV Content for BBC iPlayer, added: "It doesn’t get much bigger than the 30th anniversary, so we’re delighted to offer the millions of fans who enjoy EastEnders on BBC iPlayer each week, this exclusive treat."

EastEnders: Back to Ours will begin in early January in the run-up to the 30th anniversary of EastEnders during February 2015. Will you be watching? Let us know via the comments box below now.
