The BBC's director of content, Charlotte Moore, has confirmed that EastEnders and Top Gear will "begin filming again by the end of June".

Moore's statement comes after production was halted on both shows following the coronavirus pandemic. 

Writing in The Telegraph she said: "We've been looking carefully at how we can safely put some of our shows back into production, and I'm pleased to announce that we plan to begin filming again on both EastEnders and Top Gear by the end of June.

"We're also exploring ways to restart shooting on dramas and other major BBC shows."

She added: "Of course, we will work within Government guidelines. Crews will be strictly limited. Cast members will do their own hair and make-up. Social distancing will be in place."

Filming on BBC shows such as Line Of Duty, Peaky Blinders and Call The Midwife also came to a sudden halt. The BBC reduced the number of pre-filmed EastEnders episodes it aired a week to make them last as long as possible.
