It has been reported that EastEnders bosses are hoping to return to filming on the BBC soap next month.

Filming was halted on March 18 in the wake of the Covid-19 emergency.

An unnamed source told The Sun: "Filming will have to resume at some point and bosses say June is the benchmark.

"With strict social distancing and extra precautions on set they think EastEnders could make the transition."

"But they appreciate the health and safety of the cast and crew is paramount and should the lockdown restrictions be tightened, filming will, of course, not take place," the source continued.

"However, bosses have decided that if filming and production can resume safely, it should go ahead."

Filming on Australian soap Neighbours resumed earlier this week under social distancing guidelines. 

EastEnders airs on RTÉ One and BBC One on Mondays and Tuesdays.
