West Ham United fans who tune into the BBC's special edition of Eastenders may recognise some of the locations as Hammers fan Billy Mitchell contemplates life as an Olympic Torchbearer.

Billy, played by real-life West Ham fan Perry Fenwick, visited the Boleyn Ground back in May to film the scenes as the trodden-upon character is joined by some Olympic heroes as he prepares for his big day carry the Olympic Torch. The special light-hearted show acts as a teaser to a live Eastenders episode on Monday 23 July, where Billy will be carrying the torch through Walford.

The special episode will be available on the BBC red button from around 8.30pm on Monday. To see a sneak trailer, click here. West Ham TV will also be bringing you an exclusive behind the scenes shoot from the day of filming later this week.
