Wadia keen for 'live' 'Enders script
EastEnders actress Nina Wadia has revealed that she is looking forward to seeing the script for the soap's live episode later this month.

The 41-year-old, who plays outspoken businesswoman and caterer Zainab Masood in the BBC serial, is due to appear in the Walford show's first ever live broadcast in a fortnight's time but has yet to discover if she has any lines.

She told DS: "I'm really looking forward to it - I like anything that gives me a bit of an adrenaline rush. I'd like an actual script at some point, though, so I know if I have a line!"

She continued: "They've said it will probably involve everyone but I don't think everyone will have lines, so I'm just waiting to see whatever it is they ask me to do and to be honest, I'll be happy with whatever it is!"

Producers are expected to distribute the top-secret scripts to those involved in the live ep at some point within the next few days.

EastEnders celebrates its 25th anniversary in a fortnight's time with a special week of episodes revolving around Ricky and Bianca's wedding.

On Friday, February 19 - the day of the silver anniversary - EastEnders will broadcast its first ever live episode from its home at Elstree Studios in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire. The screening will feature the much-anticipated reveal of Archie Mitchell's murderer. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
