Due to the Coronavirus outbreak lots of events and filming schedules have been delayed, postponed, and even cancelled. So for EastEnders fans, the sad fact that filming has been suspended might not be the most shocking of news stories. The BBC has announced that filming of EastEnders, Holby City, Casualty, and Doctors are to be suspended. However, in the vain of "you gotta laugh", Tweets about EastEnders' filming being suspended are sure to lighten your mood.
Try not to wet yourself darling, there's a loo roll shortage. The BBC also revealed that the shows that have already been recorded will still be broadcast, but only two days a week.

EastEnders fans reacted in precisely the way one ought to during crisis, with a sense of humour about it all while quietly getting on with everything. Some of the show's stars past and present added their own two cents to the proceedings which is pretty good of them considering we all know there's nothing funny about missing a pay cheque.
