It comes after it was revealed Three of June Brown’s children will appear on the show for her character Dot Cotton’s funeral.
According to The Sun, show boss Chris Kershaw told how June’s children Sophie, Nim and Billy asked to be in the emotional scene.
The special episode, which is extended to 37 minutes and reportedly features a slightly altered theme tune, airs on Monday December 12.
June, who died in April of this year at the age of 95, was also mother to daughters Louise and Chloe with her husband Richard Arnold who died in 2003.
In her final scenes on the BBC series, Dot left a voicemail to say she was going to Ireland to visit her grandson Charlie.
Chris, who is EastEnders’ executive producer, told the publication that while she was alive, June did not want Dot to be killed off.
He said: ‘She did of course know that when she did leave us, it was the right thing to do.
‘After some time, we couldn’t put it off much longer. We spoke to June’s family who knew it was what she would have wanted.’
He added: ‘June’s children Nim, Sophie and Billy knew what EastEnders meant to their mother, so much so they requested to attend Dot’s funeral to say their goodbyes.’
Actress Milly Zero, who plays Dot’s granddaugher Dotty, previously told the publication that while filming the scenes the cast cried ‘real tears’ as they came together for the incredible funeral episode.
She said: ‘It was such an emotional day. We cried real tears during filming because it really is such a beautiful tribute to her. There’s elements of the episode that will make you laugh.
‘June was always a bit mischievous on set and would often change the words of the script but that was just her.
‘She would have loved seeing us all come together for the episode. I feel so proud to play her granddaughter it really is a dream role. We will always miss her.’
