Well, hello everyone and welcome to The One Show with me, Matt Baker,

:00:18.:00:26.

and lead us say hello to Michelle Ackerley will be here while Alex is

:00:27.:00:32.

away. You all right? Feeling good, a lovely welcome I will be here at the

:00:33.:00:36.

start of the week and the lovely Angela Scanlon will be here at the

:00:37.:00:42.

end of the week. Want me to do this one? Let me give it a go. If you are

:00:43.:00:48.

an east Enders fan stated as we have a special surprise for one woman who

:00:49.:00:52.

used to live in the real life Albert Square. It is no coincidence because

:00:53.:00:57.

our guest used to be the landlord of the Queen Vic and now he's back on

:00:58.:01:06.

the stage and only finished in panto yesterday. Oh no, I didn't! Are you

:01:07.:01:09.

still wearing the green tights, Shane? It's Shane Richie! Funny you

:01:10.:01:16.

should say that, underneath these tight jeans I am still wearing green

:01:17.:01:23.

tights. Goodlad. What a strange experience, of course I wore green

:01:24.:01:26.

tights but they were more like Belvedere. They looked quite good.

:01:27.:01:33.

Any ladders? Liverpool am still shaping a bit. Was sentimental

:01:34.:01:40.

parting with them? Who had a good season. We were there for three

:01:41.:01:47.

weeks, if anyone familiar with the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton

:01:48.:01:51.

Jessie and I played Robin Hood and Marion. It was a musical

:01:52.:01:55.

extravaganza, we played 2/60 5000 people the weeks. We were talking

:01:56.:02:01.

about how panto is getting bigger and bigger every year. The success

:02:02.:02:05.

of Cinderella at the Palladium, I think panto is bigger every year and

:02:06.:02:08.

it is great fun. I finished last night. You are a trooper. Later on

:02:09.:02:14.

we will talk about the fact that even though you're finished

:02:15.:02:18.

yesterday you are rejoicing today for a new play, and your new leading

:02:19.:02:24.

lady is from Strictly, Laura Whitmore. We will talk about this

:02:25.:02:26.

new play. Today Prime Minister Theresa May

:02:27.:02:29.

made a speech laying out her plans to tackle the stigma

:02:30.:02:32.

of mental health - with a particular emphasis

:02:33.:02:34.

on helping children and young people Amongst her proposals

:02:35.:02:37.

she said that by 2021, no child will be sent away

:02:38.:02:40.

from their local area to receive treatment for mental health issues -

:02:41.:02:43.

a promise which has come too late Adele Hanlon and her family have

:02:44.:02:58.

made the journey from Bristol to Newcastle to see her 17-year-old

:02:59.:03:03.

son, Eddie. Because Eddie has severe mental health issues. Two years ago

:03:04.:03:07.

he was sent to live in a specialist hospital here. So every month

:03:08.:03:13.

without fail Adele and her family couch planes trains and automobiles

:03:14.:03:18.

to make the 600 mile round trip to see Eddie. Today I am joining them.

:03:19.:03:24.

Nice to meet you, how are you doing? How was your journey? Looking

:03:25.:03:31.

forward to seeing Eddie? Yeah. According to figures obtained by

:03:32.:03:38.

Community Does zine every month one seriously ill child is sent 200

:03:39.:03:44.

miles from home to get the care they need, Adele expected Eddie to be

:03:45.:03:48.

away for nine months but three and a half years later he is still here.

:03:49.:03:52.

What do you feel you have missed out on, with himself are away? Silly

:03:53.:03:57.

things like he had his first shave. Everything. I came away from the

:03:58.:04:02.

visit sobbing because I had missed such a rite of passage, as a young

:04:03.:04:11.

man. It tears you apart. Eddie has lived in the medium secure unit at

:04:12.:04:15.

Saint Nicholas Hospital since it was 13. He has a range of complex

:04:16.:04:20.

difficulties including autism, dyspraxia and a learning disability.

:04:21.:04:25.

Growing up, he went to a couple of different schools because they could

:04:26.:04:29.

not meet his needs. He was regularly asked to stay home because he was

:04:30.:04:34.

not coping. He felt a lot of rejection to constantly move from

:04:35.:04:37.

school to school, it was quite unsettling and the more he was at

:04:38.:04:40.

home the more he became unsettled, became really violent could not

:04:41.:04:47.

control himself and we were told, we need to section him. Being so far

:04:48.:04:51.

from home is a massive barrier. If he had a bad day and we went to see

:04:52.:04:55.

him, if he was in Bristol we could go back the next day. Logistically

:04:56.:05:02.

it is hard. Eddie's commission has since greatly improved and Adele is

:05:03.:05:06.

determined to bring him closer hum, she's launched a campaign to get

:05:07.:05:10.

better NHS facilities in her area that can accommodate Eddie and other

:05:11.:05:16.

children like him. Her online petition has already amassed almost

:05:17.:05:21.

66,000 signatures. How much does that petition mean to you and what

:05:22.:05:25.

your mum is doing for you and other families? Near him and it means a

:05:26.:05:31.

lot. It is important. It made me happy when I first heard it, mum

:05:32.:05:36.

phoned the water to tell me and it made me happy. We are going to get

:05:37.:05:45.

you closer to home. - Mum phoned the ward. I can't wait, thank you for

:05:46.:05:50.

this. He knows we desperately trying to get him home, he knows that the

:05:51.:06:00.

lack of provision... The lack of provision for children like him in

:06:01.:06:03.

the south-west, there is nothing and we need to find out why and how we

:06:04.:06:09.

can change that. In Bristol, Adele is moving further campaign forward,

:06:10.:06:13.

she is meeting the clinical commissioning group and local

:06:14.:06:16.

authority to see if they can create a plan to get Eddie cared for closer

:06:17.:06:21.

to home. She hopes he could become a model for other youngsters in the

:06:22.:06:25.

south-west. Carol Watson oversees mental-health care for young people

:06:26.:06:31.

for Bristol health Council. What we want is to develop something

:06:32.:06:35.

personalised for eddies we are bringing together all the different

:06:36.:06:38.

people who need to support him and make sure there's plenty of time for

:06:39.:06:42.

whoever provides that service to get know Eddie really well so that we

:06:43.:06:47.

can carefully bring him back to Bristol at the right point for him.

:06:48.:06:52.

A really, really positive meeting. Everything has been put together

:06:53.:06:58.

now. It's exciting. It is new for them and for us. Really positive.

:06:59.:07:04.

Adele does not know when she will have things in place to bring Eddie

:07:05.:07:07.

home although she hopes it might be by the end of June. Once this is in

:07:08.:07:12.

place for Eddie this can help other people in the same position, so

:07:13.:07:23.

knowing this help others it's really positive, it's brilliant. Until then

:07:24.:07:25.

the 600 mile round trips will continue each and every month. In a

:07:26.:07:28.

way you grieve for the child who is not uncommon you grieve for the

:07:29.:07:32.

child you want to be, it's horrible. He amazes me. I don't know how he

:07:33.:07:38.

lives how he lives and is still cheerful. He is just lovely. 600

:07:39.:07:45.

mile round trip. Is shocking. We plan to revisit Adele in six

:07:46.:07:48.

months for an update You filmed last year with Eddie and

:07:49.:08:01.

Adele, what is the plan? And delighted to tell you that the

:08:02.:08:05.

future is looking brighter. Eddie turns 18 in August and his family

:08:06.:08:09.

are delighted with their local NHS services and authorities because

:08:10.:08:12.

they are looking at housing options and they are on course for Eddie to

:08:13.:08:15.

be back in his home area of Bristol by the middle of the year, in his

:08:16.:08:20.

own house or a flat with a full time carer, it means that he will be

:08:21.:08:22.

closer to the family be a proper family again and

:08:23.:08:37.

give him the support and love he needs. They hope that in that more

:08:38.:08:40.

relaxed environment he can have more access to education and maybe get a

:08:41.:08:43.

job. His mum says they just want him happy, home and healthy and after

:08:44.:08:45.

all those years of doing that 600 mile round trip once a month it

:08:46.:08:48.

looks like it is on the cards. His mum says she's lost a big chunk of

:08:49.:08:51.

his childhood because of this. We heard from Theresa May that she

:08:52.:08:54.

wants to see the back of these at a very placements for young people,

:08:55.:08:59.

what else has she said? She announced a few initiatives. One was

:09:00.:09:04.

that about one in three secondary schools will get mental health first

:09:05.:09:06.

aid training with a plan to roll that staff and teachers will be

:09:07.:09:24.

trained to spot the signs of mental health issues, flag it up and

:09:25.:09:27.

hopefully get the children the support and help they need. She also

:09:28.:09:33.

announced an extra several million pounds for community projects and

:09:34.:09:39.

she's redirecting some of NHS funding for online services so if

:09:40.:09:42.

you feel you have a mental health issue and you are on a waiting list

:09:43.:09:45.

to see your GP there will be more help available online. Some positive

:09:46.:09:51.

initial steps. You spoke to Adele today. What are her thoughts? It was

:09:52.:09:58.

Adele's first visit to Eddie today after Christmas so she was making

:09:59.:10:03.

the 600 mile round trip as Theresa May was speaking. When she says it

:10:04.:10:07.

is her dream but by 2021 no family has to go through what she does and

:10:08.:10:10.

that people can be treated in their local area. Yet there are caveats.

:10:11.:10:16.

What does the local area mean, the town, the county? Where will the

:10:17.:10:26.

funding come from? And she says she really worries that the government

:10:27.:10:28.

has underestimated how many children like Eddie there are, being treated

:10:29.:10:30.

in different parts of the country. She welcomes the ?15 million yet

:10:31.:10:33.

says you must bear in mind that it will be divided among 100 places, so

:10:34.:10:38.

?50 million sounds a good headline figure but how much will it help?

:10:39.:10:43.

She has welcomed the schools initiative yet says that long-term

:10:44.:10:46.

she would like it rolled out in primary schools because Eddie was

:10:47.:10:50.

only four when his problems started. In the main she was thrilled that

:10:51.:10:54.

Theresa May is talking about taking the stigma away from mental health,

:10:55.:10:59.

seems to be doing something and sparing other families from the

:11:00.:11:02.

heartache that they have gone through. And that our Prime Minister

:11:03.:11:06.

is talking about it. Thank you for that.

:11:07.:11:09.

Now - it's time to visit a square to the East of London with some

:11:10.:11:13.

colourful residents and a real sense of community.

:11:14.:11:15.

Does this sound familiar, Shane? I haven't got a clue what you are on

:11:16.:11:20.

about! EASTENDERS THEME TUNE PLAYS

:11:21.:11:28.

EastEnders, a roller-coaster of plotlines from young love to arson

:11:29.:11:32.

and even murder. OK, so that much drama in one small community cannot

:11:33.:11:37.

be real. But what about Albert Square itself? Well, that is not

:11:38.:11:43.

entirely fictional. In fact the inspiration for Albert Square came

:11:44.:11:47.

from a real east End community in a real place right in the heart

:11:48.:11:51.

factly. And this is it. Fasset Square. It does seem strangely

:11:52.:12:00.

familiar. Not surprising. East Enders's first producer, Tony

:12:01.:12:03.

Holland, lived nearby and drew inspiration from the places around

:12:04.:12:06.

him. There is a local pub with a launderette next door. There is a

:12:07.:12:14.

bustling street market. There are even businesses under the railway

:12:15.:12:20.

arches, including Mitchell motors. And of course a square of Victorian

:12:21.:12:25.

houses surrounding a garden complete with those famous iron railings. One

:12:26.:12:35.

Show fewer who lived here as a child, after watching a feature we

:12:36.:12:39.

did on the 30th birthday of Eastenders, had an idea. Could we

:12:40.:12:43.

track down the real East and children that she grew up with that

:12:44.:12:48.

hasn't seen for 60 years? It was a nice place to live because it was a

:12:49.:12:52.

really friendly community. We all played together in the square. Along

:12:53.:13:00.

here? Yes, we would play hopscotch. You sent me a wonderful photo that

:13:01.:13:05.

I've had printed out with all the children. That was the street party

:13:06.:13:12.

for the coronation. 1953. Where are you? That's me, I'd have been ten.

:13:13.:13:17.

And that is Rosalind's brother, Charlie. And this boy was Freddie.

:13:18.:13:24.

But those gardens behind the railings you could not access them.

:13:25.:13:27.

They were completely overgrown and the gates were locked. We used to go

:13:28.:13:36.

around collecting ladybirds of the leaves. Frannie is hopeful she can

:13:37.:13:40.

meet her old pals again and reminisce about days gone by in

:13:41.:13:47.

Fasset Square. So we put The One Show's people finding expert on the

:13:48.:13:52.

case. Could this be her hardest challenge yet? Normally I am asked

:13:53.:13:59.

to trace just one or to people. The photograph is a great place to stop

:14:00.:14:03.

because it gives me the names of the children, they would not have been

:14:04.:14:06.

old enough to vote but the electoral register provides the names of their

:14:07.:14:10.

parents so I can begin to create family trees in the hope of finding

:14:11.:14:16.

as many people as possible. After months of research Kat makes a

:14:17.:14:20.

breakthrough. She has found Freddie, one of the old friends pictured in

:14:21.:14:24.

that photograph. And he's back in the square with his wife after 25

:14:25.:14:29.

years. We are back here, Carol, after a long time. At number 41 was

:14:30.:14:36.

Ethel and Charlie. We were at number 28. That's right. The family tree of

:14:37.:14:43.

Fasset Square is building up and Kat has found even more of the childhood

:14:44.:14:49.

friends. Ross and Charlie Sykes lived at number 31. We were good

:14:50.:14:52.

friends with Frances, it would be lovely to catch up with her again.

:14:53.:14:58.

The old neighbours start gathering, Fran has no idea what is in store,

:14:59.:15:02.

surprises and shocks from the real-life EastEnders later in the

:15:03.:15:06.

show. It's a special treat, we are going to go in, have a surprise, and

:15:07.:15:09.

a The good thing about the One Show,

:15:10.:15:19.

you don't have to wait until tomorrow for the cliffhanger! That's

:15:20.:15:24.

coming up. Did you know about Fassett Square? Watching your face

:15:25.:15:29.

was brilliant! I was thinking, what's Albert Square, what's Fassett

:15:30.:15:34.

Square? In 2002 when I started the show, I was shown a picture of what

:15:35.:15:39.

Albert Square was based on, but seeing it come to live is

:15:40.:15:43.

incredible. We have a picture of you as a child with your friends. You

:15:44.:15:49.

haven't... With your colourful little top on. My tank top! Have you

:15:50.:15:56.

thought about having a reunion with people in that photo? One of them's

:15:57.:16:04.

my brother, so I see him... Was it the local crew? We look like the

:16:05.:16:15.

cast of Fagin's gang. Look at us. A council house area, a winter 's

:16:16.:16:22.

refuge where people would stay. I grew up surrounded by children at

:16:23.:16:27.

the women'srefuge and I loved it. I still keep in touch with some of my

:16:28.:16:31.

schoolmates, but it's a long time ago, isn't it? Great memories. You

:16:32.:16:38.

are still looking good, Shane. Back off, I am married! You were off the

:16:39.:16:46.

stage in Robin Hood, and now it's gone all dark. The play, Not Dead

:16:47.:16:54.

Enough. Peter James Harris sold over 60 million copies of the book world

:16:55.:16:58.

wide and it's a real dark story. -- has sold. I play detective Roy

:16:59.:17:08.

Grace. There are three suspects and no proof. Myself and Jessie did a

:17:09.:17:17.

play last year, A Perfect Murder, but this deals with a serial killer

:17:18.:17:21.

in the Brighton area. Today I saw the stage for the first time, it was

:17:22.:17:26.

all laid out. The cast around me is the cream of British theatre. And

:17:27.:17:31.

Laura Whitmore plays my girlfriend. The lovely Laura. Your first day of

:17:32.:17:39.

rehearsals today? The cast have been together a week, they are off the

:17:40.:17:44.

book, I am going, what am I saying? But reading the story and getting

:17:45.:17:47.

into character, I'm hoping people come and see it, but nothing like

:17:48.:17:52.

this has been done on stage before. Really dark and at times quite

:17:53.:17:56.

harrowing. I am scaring myself talking about it. Your character is

:17:57.:18:03.

based on a real person. I met him last year, David. I will be spending

:18:04.:18:08.

time with him. He is a detected in Brighton. I wanted to go out with

:18:09.:18:12.

him one night on patrol and talk me through some of the procedures that

:18:13.:18:15.

I need to know to play this character. Reading the script, guys,

:18:16.:18:20.

I'm going, really? Are we going to get away with this onstage? We are,

:18:21.:18:27.

and we will. How have you found the transition from the musical... Not

:18:28.:18:34.

quite yet. Boys and girls! No, as soon as I finished last night, 12

:18:35.:18:39.

shows on the bounce, we got the kids home and they were crying this

:18:40.:18:42.

morning because it was the school run and I had to come to London to

:18:43.:18:46.

start rehearsing. But that's finished now and my head is totally

:18:47.:18:50.

into this play. I love a good whodunnit. Your chosen subject on

:18:51.:18:59.

mastermind was Columbo. Was it really? You think you know who has

:19:00.:19:03.

done it at the beginning. The whole audience is convinced you have got

:19:04.:19:08.

the guy, but my character says, no, it might not be the right guy.

:19:09.:19:14.

Brilliant. Write to the last page. It's gone all quiet now! You are off

:19:15.:19:20.

on tour all over the country with it. Not Dead Enough, you start in

:19:21.:19:26.

Dartford on January 25th. All around the country. Really excited. You are

:19:27.:19:35.

into your high-tech gadgets. You got one of these at Christmas. Yes. It

:19:36.:19:42.

replicates things you can do on the internet by voice command? It's the

:19:43.:19:46.

most bizarre thing, it was bought for me by Father Christmas, by my

:19:47.:19:53.

wife, and my kids talk to it. You have to call it Alexa. Is it

:19:54.:19:59.

working? I don't know. You have to be careful. Have you heard what

:20:00.:20:02.

happens if you say the sentence? Someone told me today! It happened

:20:03.:20:09.

on telly in America. This girl went to order a Wendy house. $70. There

:20:10.:20:18.

she is. So cute. And she ordered some cookies as well. She did it

:20:19.:20:23.

without telling her parents, and the biscuits arrived. And it made the

:20:24.:20:27.

local news, and the news Carter said the sentence that she said, and

:20:28.:20:32.

everyone watching who had one of them, they then had a Wendy house

:20:33.:20:36.

delivered to their house. You have to be so careful! Let's stop talking

:20:37.:20:44.

about Wendy houses! My kids say, Alexa, can you play little mix? My

:20:45.:20:51.

kids this morning, who is Shane Richie? Shane Richie is a stand-up

:20:52.:20:55.

comedian, actor... It's the most bizarre thing, brilliant. You can

:20:56.:20:59.

link it to the house and say, Alexa, can you put the telly on? Can we

:21:00.:21:06.

watch the One Show? Careful! We wondered if devices like this could

:21:07.:21:09.

have a more valuable role. There are so much we can be thankful

:21:10.:21:21.

for when it comes to technology, making things quicker and easier,

:21:22.:21:25.

and replacing jobs we used to do ourselves. How far can it go when

:21:26.:21:30.

substituting that most precious things, human interaction? Bob lost

:21:31.:21:33.

his wife five years ago and has found adjusting to life on his own

:21:34.:21:39.

difficult. I do suffer from loneliness at times, particularly

:21:40.:21:43.

weekends. Amazon Echo is the latest voice control technology to hit the

:21:44.:21:48.

market. Alexa, tell me about the Amazon Echo. It is designed around

:21:49.:21:54.

your voice and can provide music, information, weather and more. Can

:21:55.:22:01.

this help Bob with his loneliness? I am alone now. I know it's true.

:22:02.:22:08.

There was a time when we were two. Those were the days when we would

:22:09.:22:12.

chat and do little jobs, like this and that. The rooms were empty.

:22:13.:22:19.

There's not a sound. And I feel quite lost as I wander around, to

:22:20.:22:23.

look for jobs that I can do. To bring back those days, when we were

:22:24.:22:30.

two. Bob, in modern life, do you think there is a place for

:22:31.:22:32.

technology to help with the loneliness? For the existing lonely

:22:33.:22:39.

elderly people, in their 80s or 90s, I don't think technology has got a

:22:40.:22:43.

lot for them. So you are a bit sceptical? I'm afraid I am. I bought

:22:44.:22:50.

Bob this device to use for the weekend, but will it be smart enough

:22:51.:22:55.

to change his get kisses? It is called Alexa. I will give you an

:22:56.:23:00.

example. -- to change his scepticism? What is the weather? 60

:23:01.:23:07.

degrees with mostly cloudy skies. Let me try. Alexa, can you play

:23:08.:23:11.

Glenn Miller's Moonlight Serenade, please?

:23:12.:23:20.

Moonlight Serenade Plays. Stop, Alexa. See what it does to me?

:23:21.:23:34.

Sorry. What would make you smile? Tommy Cooper singing, Don't jump off

:23:35.:23:43.

the roof. I have left Bob with Alexa to see how they get on. I am back to

:23:44.:23:48.

see how Bob got on this weekend with his new toy. How much is the price

:23:49.:23:54.

of petrol? I have come to the conclusion that the technical

:23:55.:23:58.

capabilities are more aligned to the younger generation. It is far too

:23:59.:24:01.

advanced, and it takes away from me the necessity of writing in a diary.

:24:02.:24:09.

What did you find it good for? I asked it how to boil an egg. The

:24:10.:24:16.

boil an egg, put a pinhole in the round end to avoid cracking, and

:24:17.:24:22.

boil in water. OK, that's fine. I want to cook a pork chop. Sorry, I

:24:23.:24:28.

didn't understand the question. As far as I am concerned, cooking

:24:29.:24:32.

questions, I'm going to have a problem. What about people who have

:24:33.:24:37.

no one to talk to? Would they like the interaction? I don't think so.

:24:38.:24:42.

You can ask questions and get answers, but there is no warmth, the

:24:43.:24:48.

tones of a real person. BAA Alexa, you will hurt her feelings! Well,

:24:49.:24:56.

tough, she is making a good living. Good on you, Bob. That is just one

:24:57.:25:00.

example of many devices that will be in our houses over the next few

:25:01.:25:06.

years. The mind boggles. It is scary. We have the lovely Shane. You

:25:07.:25:11.

left east Enders were good but you have not left the character of Alfie

:25:12.:25:16.

behind totally, because you and Jessie Wallace are standing in a

:25:17.:25:19.

stand-alone drama in Ireland called Redwater. Which we filmed in five

:25:20.:25:26.

months, hopefully on the BBC around March or April, and hopefully me and

:25:27.:25:30.

Jessie welcome here to talk about it. An exclusive trail. Bring on

:25:31.:25:38.

with you! Six on ours for the BBC, very excited. -- one alleys. Time to

:25:39.:25:47.

go back to the true inspiration of Albert Square. And as ever, there is

:25:48.:25:54.

about to be a dramatic surprise. Fassett Square in Hackney is the

:25:55.:25:58.

real-life location on which East Enders' Albert Square is based. One

:25:59.:26:03.

Show viewer Fran Shepherd used to live here and she asked us to help

:26:04.:26:06.

trace some of her old friends that she hasn't seen for almost 60 years.

:26:07.:26:13.

I am about to take Fran into the square's central garden. She wasn't

:26:14.:26:17.

allowed in here as a child. Today she thinks she is getting a tour.

:26:18.:26:21.

What she doesn't realise is that her childhood friends will be waiting to

:26:22.:26:28.

meet her. So, come on in. It's really lovely, isn't it? Gorgeous,

:26:29.:26:35.

clearly been done up. Finally after all these years, here you are. We do

:26:36.:26:40.

have another surprise for you. What's that? You showed me this

:26:41.:26:46.

photograph. I think it might be time for a slightly updated version. It

:26:47.:26:50.

is looking a bit old. It is, definitely. I wonder if there is a

:26:51.:26:57.

few people you might recognise. Oh, wow!

:26:58.:27:02.

This calls for a street party, just like on Coronation Day in 1953. The

:27:03.:27:20.

friends are soon reminiscing about times gone by. There are so many

:27:21.:27:24.

stories to tell about the real east end. There was a party down the road

:27:25.:27:30.

so we used to really down the road and take it there. And Fassett

:27:31.:27:35.

Square also had plenty of real-life drama. My older brother clambered

:27:36.:27:40.

over that gate and got his leg in pale on the gate. My mum had to get

:27:41.:27:47.

a chair at and lift him off. Just like the Queen Vic in East Enders,

:27:48.:27:51.

the local boozer was a centre for wheeling and dealing. People from

:27:52.:27:56.

Billingsgate, a box of fish left over from sales. You would buy them

:27:57.:28:03.

a pint... There was a little of that going on, but it was all legal as

:28:04.:28:09.

far as I recall! Nothing like Eastenders, the show! It was!

:28:10.:28:17.

Whether it was or wasn't maybe open to debate, but one thing 's for

:28:18.:28:24.

sure, Fran and her Fassett Square pals need that black and white photo

:28:25.:28:29.

updating. Three, two, one, East Enders! You kept that secret!

:28:30.:28:36.

It was so nice to see everybody. A big surprise for me, actually. I

:28:37.:28:43.

wasn't expecting this. Thank you very much.

:28:44.:28:48.

What a lovely image. Those devices all over Britain are going nuts

:28:49.:28:57.

after the conversation we had! Alexa, turn off! Thank you for

:28:58.:29:04.

joining us, Shane Richie! Not Dead Enough starts on January 25th. We

:29:05.:29:11.

will be back tomorrow with musical impresario Cameron Mackintosh and a

:29:12.:29:15.

performance from the cast of Half A Sixpence. Hope you enjoyed the show.

:29:16.:29:19.

Goodbye!

:29:20.:29:20.
