The fire follows a real-life blaze on the EastEnders set

Days after a real-life fire broke out in Albert Square, viewers will see Matt Di Angelo's character Dean Wicks try to burn down the Queen Vic tonight.

The confrontation takes place when Dean returns to Walford with revenge in mind and a can of petrol in his hand.

He ends up in the pub's barrel store with Nancy Carter (Maddy Hill) as a hostage and her father Mick (Danny Dyer) out to stop him.

Firefighters were called out to the soap's set for real on Tuesday after a fire was started in one of the buildings.

The blaze, in one of the houses on the set at Elstree Studios, is believed to have been started accidentally by a firework

Viewers watching EastEnders tonight will discover who murdered Lucy Beale in an end to the show's long-running whodunit.


The reveal takes place in a special week of semi-live broadcasts, which has seen two of the cast members fluff their lines.

On Tuesday night, Max Branning actor Jake Wood told his on-screen daughter Abi: “She knows whether you killed Lucy”, but many misheard his mumbled line for “She knows who killed Lucy” causing confusion among viewers.

Last night, Tanya Branning actress Jo Joyner accidentally said “How’s Adam?”, referring to the actor Adam Woodyatt who plays Ian Beale.

The soap's 30th anniversary week ends on Friday with a special live episode.
