  Queen meets EastEnders cast
Updated 28 November 2001, 19.52
The Queen visits EastEnders
The Queen popped into Albert Square to meet the stars of EastEnders.

Her Majesty was treated to a walk around the market, a peak inside the houses and even went behind the bar at the Queen Vic - named after her great great grandmother.

Stars Barbara Windsor, who plays Peggy Mitchell, and Wendy Richard, who plays Pauline Fowler, showed the Queen and Prince Philip around the set.

They also met other cast members, including Steve McFadden (Phil Mitchell), June Brown (Dot Cotton), Jack Ryder (Jamie Mitchell) and James Alexandrou (Martin Fowler).

The Queen then went to the Blue Peter studios and met old and new presenters.

Presenter Simon Thomas gave her a gold Blue Peter badge, and the Queen said: "How splendid!"

He then made the Queen laugh by saying she could now get into all the London attractions for free.

Afterwards, Simon said he was relieved the Queen had laughed so he didn't look too silly.
