The iconic EastEnders theme tune will be given a special Jubilee remix as part of this Thursday's episode.

This week's Jubilee episode of EastEnders will feature a special remixing of the soap's iconic theme tune.

To mark The Queen's remarkable 70-year stint on the throne, a special episode will air on Thursday night that will see the residents of Walford throw a big party in the Square.

Prince Charles and his wife Camilla will then have an extended cameo as they arrive to join in the celebrations - and towards the end of the episode, everyone gathers in a toast to The Queen.

A special version of the EastEnders theme tune, remixed for the occasion by original composer Simon May, will then play out over the festivities in the Square and the end credits.

EastEnders executive producer Chris Clenshaw said: "To have Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall not only visit us all in Walford, but to also appear in an episode, we felt it was only right that we marked this extremely momentous episode with a fitting tribute and what better way than to wish Their Royal Highnesses on their way from Albert Square than with a special Jubilee version of our iconic theme tune, remastered by the very talented Simon May."

The Jubilee episode of EastEnders airs Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
