It’s a Monday – Thursday evening, on the dot of 7:30pm, there’s only one channel that you’re tuning into!
You hear the Doof Doofs start and you’re ready for half an hour of Cockney entertainment.
13 million people tuned in to watch the first ever episode of EastEnders on 19th February 1985.
Created as a BBC rival to ITV’s Coronation Street, the show promised to dramatise the lives of working-class east end Londoners who live in Albert Square, in the fictitious Borough of Walford.

If you think you know the goings on of the Square as well as any Mitchell, Beale or Carter, Sun Bingo has a game for you!
Eyes down, it’s time for some play-along EastEnders Bingo!
How to play
To whip up a game of play-along EastEnders Bingo, you’ll need:
- A piece of paper with a 3×3 grid.
- A dabber.
- The other members of your EastEnders Fan Club.
- Snacks and drinks (to make this play-along game a real party!).
Pick eight things to write on your bingo card, leaving the middle square blank.
In the blank square, note your bingo name – there’s a bonus point for the most creative EastEnders-inspired name (e.g. “Phil in your score card” or “Are you taking the Mick?”).
If one of your chosen things happens in the show, mark it off your card with your dabber.

If you want to have multiple winners, you can award a prize for 1L and 2L (which is when a prize is given to the first player to mark off one complete line, and two complete lines).
However, if there’s only room for one East Ender on the throne, the King or Queen will be the first to get a full house (when all things on your bingo card have been marked off).
This game could be played over one episode (and the winner is the player with the most squares marked off) or your bingo game could play out over multiple episodes, until a full house winner is crowned.
Gather all the players together, get the snacks and drinks ready, and tune in to EastEnders.
