The EastEnders set is facing "demolition" under BBC plans to build a bigger version of Albert Square and make it HD-ready.

The current Albert Square, set in Elstree, North London, will "be demolished" to make way for a new and improved Walford high street, with new shops, a new underground station and even a few new houses. Plenty of room for new arrivast!

According to documents seen by The Mail on Sunday, "[The] BBC's current intention is that following completion, the existing EastEnders set will be demolished."

EastEnders executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins told the paper: "This is a really exciting project and firmly demonstrates the BBC's commitment to the future of EastEnders. We have ambitious plans for the show and the new exterior set will help bring those to life and better reflect the East End of London on screen for audiences."

So basically, they're giving the place a revamp so those super high quality cameras make the place look fab.

Reckon the Queen Vic will become a gastro-pub? A few licks of paint seems more likely...
