EastEnders delights fans with special tribute to the Lionesses

EastEnders joined the rest of England in paying tribute to the Lionesses who beat Germany on Sunday night to be crowned Euro 2022 champions.

Their 2-1 win at Wembley finally brought football home and the celebrations didn’t stop.

Everyone from the Queen to the Spice Girls ran out to congratulate the team.

Who was in the EastEnders Lionesses scene?

EastEnders was the latest show to pay tribute to the ladies by cramming a specially filmed scene last night (Monday 1st August).

The scene showed Kim Fox raising a glass of bubbly with landlady Linda Carter and Lola Pearce at the Queen Vic.

‘Buddy, it’s finally come home!’ Kim (Tameka Empsom) squealed with excitement.

“I never failed you as a football fan,” retorted Kellie Bright’s Linda as a line of delighted fans hopped by in the background.

The BBC One soap also took the opportunity to spread a bit of feminism too, with Kim adding: “When we talk about strong, winning women, I’m there. I’m one of them.”

She added: “It changed everything.

“The game. Women in sports everywhere. Pearl watched it and loved it. Every single one of them is a role model, I’m telling you. If you can see it, you can be!”

Walford’s own three Lionesses also included some mansplainings from Rocky (Brian Connelly), who claimed he played a major role in John Barnes’ legendary England rap from New Order’s 1990 hit World in Motion.

Lola looked on in disbelief before joking, “Wait, we’re partying women here and you’re doing it with you and another guy?”

What did EastEnders fans think?

Predictably, the last minute scene was an absolute treat with the fans.

They flocked to Twitter to share their joy. And celebrate the lionesses once again.
