Hopefully he won’t cry

Adam Woodyatt, the actor who plays Ian Beale in Eastenders, will be making an appearance at the last ever Red Leicester.

Leicester’s O2 Academy confirmed this morning that ‘Ian Beale’ will be doing a stage shout-out before meeting and greeting Leicester students.

Given the popularity of the ‘Who killed Lucy?’ storyline, Adam has recently come into the limelight and is doing a brief tour of student clubs and events to say thank you for the support of the fans.


Rebecca, a third year Geography student, said: “I’m so excited for this. We hosted an Eastenders themed party when Lucy’s killer was revealed. I knew it was Bobby.”

Mark, a Computer Science finalist, said: “Ian Beale is such a legend. The photo with him will definitely be profile picture worthy.”

We approached Adam for a comment but he is yet to respond.

Red Leicester will be making its return on June 20th at O2 Academy.

Before you get too excited, check your calendars. Happy April Fools.
