EastEnders praised for last minutes Euros scene after England final07/14/2021
EastEnders fans have praised BBC bosses for a last-minute additional scene during Monday night's episode.
Despite being pre-recorded weeks ago, producers quickly filmed a new scene to kick off the episode.
During the segment Billy, Kim and Bobby were seen in the square talking about the final of the Euros.
Looking glum, Billy walked through Albert Square draped in an England flag.
Talking to Bobby, the gutted local said: "You know, I was seven when we won the World Cup.
"I just hope I am about long enough to see us win something else.
"I thought that with Harry [Redknapp] turning up here on Friday, I thought that was a sign. Like it is fate."
Walking past, Kim added: "We should have brought on another attacker and killed them off when we were at 1-0.
"I had to put on Love Island in the end. It got too much. It was too emotional.
"I am glad that I did because to see [Bukayo] Saka crying live on TV would have broken my heart."
In a tongue in cheek gag, Kim continued: "It is going to be a long time until I have spaghetti bolognese or chicken arrabbiata I can tell you that.

Another added: "Well played #EastEnders. That was a smart little last-minute scene to reference the Euros."
A third chimed in: "Loved that scene with Billy, Bobby and Kim about #EURO2020. #Eastenders."
