Shane Richie as Alfie Moon

Shane Richie has confessed he once had an awkward moment on the set of 'EastEnders' when he took an anti-impotence Viagra pill but was then made to film scenes for the show.

Shane Richie took Viagra on the 'EastEnders' set.

The 50-year-old actor - who plays long-running soap star Shane Richie - revealed he and his co-stars once took the anti-impotence medication while on set as a joke, but then had an awkward moment as they were called to film a scene and didn't want their protruding members to be caught on camera.

Recalling the hilarious incident on the 'EastEnders' special of 'The Graham Norton Show' which airs on Monday (16.02.15), he admitted: "It was when Viagra had just come out and we all took one - we were told they would take 20 minutes to work so I popped a pill at the end of the day. Just as I was on my way out the director said, 'We need to shoot a scene again.' All the men filmed the scene pressed very close to the bar."

The comical admission was made on the chat show as the cast gear up to celebrate the London-based soap's 30th anniversary next week, during which they will air a series of live episodes, which some cast members are feeling anxious about.

Kellie Bright who plays Linda Carter confessed although she is looking forward to the challenge, she is scared she might burst out laughing while filming serious scenes.

She said: "I'm more worried about nervous twinkling [laughter]. That would be worse than forgetting our lines."
