Turns out Whoopi Goldberg is a massive fan of EastEnders – so much so that she’s been given a personal invite onto the show from one of its big stars.
The Oscar-winning actress stopped by Loose Women earlier today (October 12) where she spoke about her love for the long-running BBC soap.
And the panel had a big surprise for her as EastEnders’ Adam Woodyatt – aka Ian Beale – sent her a personal video message.
“Hey Whoopi, well I’ve heard you know who I am because you’re a big fan of Eastenders,” the actor said.
“But for anyone that doesn’t know, I’m Adam Woodyatt, I’ve been Ian Beale for the past 25 years. Whoopi, I can’t believe it – you were in Star Trek and you watch Eastenders! I’m so chuffed!”
He then added: “If you ever want a trip round the Square, I’ve followed you on Twitter. DM me and we’ll sort it out.”
Whoopi then revealed that EastEnders had been “taken away” in the US, saying that its appeal lied in that “no one looked like they’d been done” and that anyone could see themselves in the characters.
The Hollywood star and former EastEnders actress Nadia Sawalha then recreated the legendary ‘you ain’t my muvver’ scene.
Whoopi will appear on UK screens again later this evening on The Graham Norton Show, where she will give K-pop band BTS a very special gift.
EastEnders airs on BBC One.
