Eastside to Eastend

Anyone who saw the rip-roaring (pun intended) finale to Eastenders on Friday will be familiar with the questions; what’s going to happen to the Queen Vic? (it’s burnt down) and who the hell will replace Peggy Mitchell? (she walked out). Well, two words people....50 and Cent.

While we have to take this with a little pinch of salt, The Mirror are reporting an exciting little story that none other than 50 Cent is to make a one-off cameo in the BBC1 prime-time telly soap. And if you think this sounds like a load of tabloid balls, they’ve quoted Fiddy himself: ‘I really wanted Peggy to throw me out of her pub, but I didn't get it organised quick enough and it's too late now. I've performed with Eminem and Justin Timberlake, acted with De Niro and Pacino, had a guest spot on The Simpsons - in the US a sign you've made it to the very top, but I can't fulfil my biggest showbiz dream.’

You couldn’t make this stuff up - or could you? We shall see.
