EastEnd Meets WestEnd/EastEnd does WestEnd was an EastEnders special that aired as part of the Children in Need 2017 live annual telethon.


A medley of songs from West End musicals including "Who Will Buy" (Oliver!), "Get Me to the Church on Time" (My Fair Lady), "On My Own" (Les Misérables), "Step in Time" (Mary Poppins), "One Day More" (Les Misérables), performed by the cast on the EastEnders set. The special was shot differently to standard episodes of EastEnders which are filmed in high definition, instead it was filmed in ultra-high definition to give a cinematic feel.
