In a twist typical of EastEnders' dramatic flair, Olly's appearance in the Square isn't the only surprise on the horizon. As the celebratory atmosphere envelops Walford, one resident is inspired to take a significant leap and propose, though the identity of the couple and the all-important answer remain shrouded in mystery.

Expressing his delight at being part of the iconic soap opera, Olly Alexander said: “I'm thrilled to be making my first appearance on EastEnders and in the most iconic pub in the UK. I'm so happy I got to meet some true screen legends and spend time on set with the brilliant cast and crew. I wanted to surprise my mum as it’s her favorite show but I guess the cat is out of the bag now, she's gonna love it!”

Chris Clenshaw, executive producer of EastEnders, added: “When we discovered that Olly Alexander was a huge fan of the show and an opportunity arose in one of our stories, it was the perfect moment for us to invite him to Albert Square to appear. We hope the audience enjoy Olly's special guest-appearance as much as everyone at EastEnders enjoyed having him in Walford.”

According to producers, the singer filmed his scenes back in March.
