Mayor Of London Appears on EastEnders

Hello and welcome to today’s edition of A Slice Of Soap. There’s still time to enter this week’s caption competition so get scribbling and make us all laugh.  

Hey soapsters, did any of you see Boris Johnson on EastEnders last night? If you blinked (or happened to dose off, cos EastEnders was a bit dreary) then you might have missed him.

It all seemed to happen so quickly.  Anyway, BoJo’s much anticipated cameo was watched by nearly 8 million viewers. In his brief, but historic, appearance, the larger-than-life politician appeared in the Queen Vic after having punctured his bicycle tyre.

The Mayor asked Peggy to call him "Boris" instead of "Mister Mayor" and  took out a business card, saying: "If you have any ideas how I could help Walford, here is my card".

Not everyone was happy with BoJo’s achievement of being the first politician on the soap. Apparently Ken Livingstone accused the BBC of picking "favourites", complaining that he twice approached producers to appear on EastEnders, but was refused on the grounds that his appearance would be ‘too political.’

Speaking about The Mayor’s appearance on EastEnders last night, a BBC spokesman said: "His appearance is compatible both with BBC editorial guidelines and the principle of due impartiality."  

Boris Johnson can now add: ‘drank pint in Queen Vic and exchanged pleasantries with Peggy Mitchell’ to his CV. I wonder who’ll be next? Let’s just hope that Gordon Brown doesn’t get any funny ideas. 

Anyway soapsters, what did you think of BoJo’s appearance on EastEnders last night? Was it worth writing home about, or was a big fuss made about nothing? Let us know your views by leaving a comment.  In case you missed The Mayor’s historic visit to Albert Square here it is again….

    Do we have to be bombarded by this tory buffon every 5 minutes. The tories are pulling everything out of the hat with their policies that they will never fulfil and we al remember their disgusting trillion years in parliament with god knows how many ending up in jail Lords of the realm etc etc. rubbing our noses in it. Now it looks like their back and they are never of the telly. How Londoners voted for this a…….e to be Mayor has me beat. The man is a twit and our country is about to be governed by a whole load of snobby twits again. So please BBC keep them off light entertainment programmes as they have no place in them all they are tring to do is get votes that goes for all politcians J.G EDINBURGH
