It’s been a hectic week for the cast of ‘EastEnders’, and on Friday night, the long-awaited live episode of the show was aired.

The episode picked up exactly where Thursday’s left off, as Ian Beale attempted to cope following Jane’s admission that she killed Lucy.

While the whole cast and crew have received praise on Twitter, there are two stars who really deserve a pat on the back, Eliot Carrington and Mimi Keene, who are just 12 and 16 years old, respectively.

The actors play Bobby and Cindy Beale, and they each had a number of important scenes in Friday’s show.

Viewers saw Bobby struggle to cope as his family argued, while Mimi was charged with the task of delivering the final speech, reading out a letter left by Lucy just before she died.

Both stars have been praised by fans on Twitter, who were seriously impressed with the duo’s live acting.

Live week has been a huge hit with fans, and Thursday’s big reveal, when fans found out who killed Lucy, was seen by over 10 million viewers.

Away from the Beale family, there was plenty of drama, and Mick and Nancy Cater were frantically on the hunt for Dean Wicks, who went missing after trying to set fire to the Vic.
