Back to Ours first launched in January, available exclusively on BBC iPlayer. The iPlayer exclusive involved EastEnders stars sitting down in their on-screen homes with their respective families watching back some of their most memorable moments.

Back to Ours 2 is expected to become available on iPlayer in late September.

Speaking about Back to Ours back in January, Victoria Jaye (the Head of TV Content for BBC iPlayer) said: “Commissioning ‘Back to Ours’ builds on the success of BBC iPlayer exclusive EastEnders programmes that feed audiences’ excitement around the show’s biggest story-lines and moments. It doesn’t get much bigger than the 30th Anniversary, so we’re delighted to offer the millions of fans who enjoy EastEnders on BBC iPlayer each week, this exclusive treat.”
