Clacton: Soap stars film on seafront

CAST members from Eastenders descended on Clacton this week to film Christmas episodes of the show.

Familiar faces from the soap were seen in the Essex seaside town on Monday as crowds of fans looked on.

Pat St. Clement, who plays Pat Butcher, was spotted wearing a fur coat as she filmed scenes for the hit show in the boiling heat.

But it wasn’t all bad news, as other cast members, including Sid Owen, who plays Ricky Butcher, and Lindsey Coulson who plays Carol Jackson, were seen relaxing and enjoying some of the late summer weather on the seafront during breaks.
