Wendy Richard tribute programme

Thursday, February 26, 2009 by

The BBC will screen a tribute to the late Wendy Richard this evening.

The programme will air at 8pm after tonight’s episode of EastEnders, the show in which she regularly appeared from 1985 to 2006.

Her fellow EastEnders cast member, Adam Woodyatt, has said: “I am so sorry to hear the very sad news about Wendy’s death. I have many fond memories of our time together at EastEnders and will remember her with affection. Knowing that she is no longer in pain and suffering is the only comfort and I hope she rests in peace. My deepest sympathies are with John, their family and friends.”

The BBC press office has published its tribute here.
