SOAP stars and television crews have been spotted filming at a village caravan park for the second day running.

Eastenders' Jessie Wallace, Steve McFadden, and Letitia Dean shot scenes at Hutley's Caravan Park, in St Osyth, earlier today.

The trio of actors play Kat Slater, Phil Mitchell, and Sharon Watts, who are some of the long-running show's biggest characters.

They were surrounded by a sizeable team of camera operators, producers and assistants who were keen to keep the storyline under wraps.

Some residents on the site, however, believe the cast were shooting segments of the programme's highly-anticipated Christmas episodes. 

Eastenders superfan Barbie Pithers, 51, who has been staying at the park, was delighted to see the production set-up directly in front of her caravan.

She said: "It is exciting and interesting, they have a lot of people here but when you are sitting there watching it you do not think about how much goes into it.

"I knew they were filming it yesterday on the beach but I heard they would be here today, so I thought I would stay here and have a front row seat.

"I think they are filming for Christmas so I will definitely be watching it Christmas Day."

Chelmsford Weekly News:

The soap stars' appearance at Hutley's Caravan Park comes a day after they were spotted shooting on the nearby beach.

Richard Gray, from Clacton, captured a shot of the action taking place on Monday morning.

He said: "I was just out for a walk and saw all the trucks and vans on the field and wondered what was going on.

"There were a lot of people about in hi-vis and a lot of extras hanging about.

"I was even asked by a policeman to wait for a moment as they were actually filming."
