    Eastenders has announced it is set to air special episodes with a storyline set in Milton Keynes, as Whitney and Zack pay a visit to Bianca.

    The BBC soap has confirmed that it is set to air two special episodes following Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) and Zack (James Farrar) during their time in Milton Keynes.

    The characters left Walford in January to visit Milton Keynes, where Bianca (Patsy Palmer), now resides.

    Bianca Jackson and her family live in the city after moving from Albert Square in 2014.

    Eastenders has announced that the special episodes will see a format change for the show, with the episodes that are set in Milton Keynes, set to air in the first week of March.

    Fans will see events that have happened in the past five weeks, to bring them up to speed with the character's trip to the city.

    It has not yet been confirmed by the soap whether the scenes were filmed in Milton Keynes.

    The storyline will see Whitney's concerns grow for Britney, a child on Bianca’s estate. 

    Speaking on the storyline in a Facebook post, Chris Clenshaw, Executive Producer said: “We’re thrilled to welcome the immensely talented Lola Campbell to the cast of EastEnders as she takes on the role of Britney. The special episodes, which coincide with Patsy Palmer’s return, will showcase five weeks’ worth of storyline as we follow Whitney and Zack during their time in Milton Keynes, but it’s not long before the pair are thrust into the heart of the drama after Whitney grows concerned for Britney’s wellbeing.”
