Confused? Don’t be.

EastEnders and Coronation Street are merging for a Children In Need special called East Street.

Walford’s residents will step out on the Northern cobbles, while Weatherfield’s locals will be getting supplies from Albert Square‘s Minute Mart.

‘It’s been surreal. I loved watching their reactions when I showed them round the Square,’ says Shane Richie, 46, who plays EastEndersAlfie Moon.

East Street will be aired around 9pm on Friday on BBC1 as part of the Children In Need extravaganza.
