FILMING for the much-loved TV show Eastenders has continued in Southend today, with scenes being shot along the seafront. 

A number of stars of the hit soap have been spotted in the city this week, with filming already taking place near the arcades and at Adventure Island. 

The attraction's boss, Philip Miller, has revealed filming has been taking place close to The Three Shells cafe today. 

Some scenes are also being shot on the beach itself and by the water's edge. 

Mr Miller said: "Bit more excitement today filming and transforming the iconic Three Shells."

Yesterday, photos emerged of character Jean Slater, played by actress Gillian Wright, wearing a wedding dress and riding on one of the Adventure Island rollercoasters. 

Mr Miller revealed earlier this week that some of the staff at Adventure Island had acted as extras during filming. 

Characters Martin (James Bye) and Stacey (Lacey Turner) have also featured during filming.
