Derek on EastEnders after Barbara

EastEnders star Derek Martin thinks the soap will be able to soldier on without Barbara Windsor.

Derek, who plays family man Charlie Slater, denied suggestions that the Walford show won't be the same without Barbara, who leaves her role as Peggy Mitchell later this year.

He said: "People said that when Dirty Den and Angie left, they say that about all the characters but soaps go on."

He added: "Look at when Ena Sharples left Corrie. Soap goes on."

Meanwhile, Derek is feeling confident about the soap's live episode on Friday, February 19, which marks its 25th anniversary.

"I did lots of live stuff years ago," he said.

"Some of the youngsters might be a bit nervous but to me it's just doing what we do. We're professionals and we'll do it."
