EastEnders stars Shane Richie and Jessie Wallace were all smiles this afternoon as they posed outside the BBC building in London.

The pair were pictured leaving the BBC Studios after a meeting earlier today (23 June) and we're guessing it's got something to do with their upcoming spin-off show.

Last month, viewers saw Kat and Alfie Moon leave Albert Square behind for a new life in Spain. Their exit paves the way for their spin-off drama, which will be aired next year.

Executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins said at the time: "Now is the perfect time to take two of EastEnders' most beloved and enduring characters out of their comfort zone as they head to Ireland to search for answers to some very big questions."

Last month, Shane was forced to clear up rumours that he was quitting EastEnders for good.

The spin-off drama will be six hour-long episodes and filming will start this autumn.
