For one night only, two soap legends from Walford and Weatherfield and three much-loved TV shows collide in a very special sketch for BBC Children in Need.

EastEnders’ Janine Butcher (Charlie Brooks) is looking for love and turns to Channel 4’s hit dating show First Dates to help with her search.

This is quite the soap cocktail!

In an unexpected twist, she comes face to face with Coronation Street’s Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson). Steve, who has been married 7 times, unwittingly finds himself on a date with fiery Janine.

The pair are greeted at the restaurant by First Dates maître d' Fred Sirieix, but will their chemistry sizzle or fizzle on their 'date'?

But will they be all smiles after their date?

Written by BAFTA-winning and Emmy-nominated television writer Daran Little, the sketch will be part of the BBC Children in Need appeal show on BBC One from 7pm on Friday, 19 November.
