image for Eastenders To Be Made In India
The replacement Dot Cotton bears an uncanny likeness.

Classic British soap Eastenders is to be made in India as a cost-cutting measure by the BBC.

The drama, which is set in the East End of old London town, will now be made on the outskirts of Dehli, where shanty towns similar to Mile End and Stepney Green are, literally, ten a penny.

Cast members unhappy with the move have been told that Indian actors are lining up for the chance to step in and have been rehearsing mockney accents for months.

Ian Beale and Bianca Jackson are on board and have started rehearsing scenes as part of a new storyline involving curry smuggling.

Both have agreed to pay cuts which will see them accept their six figure annual salaries converted to the equivalent in rupees.

Make Dingwall Johnson's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
