The BBC's project to build a brand new, HD-ready Albert Square and expand the external EastEnders set will now cost £27m more than originally planned.
The original 2015 forecast for the scheme was £59.7m, but the revised budget is now £86.7m, the National Audit Office (NAO) has revealed.
The new set was originally due to open in 2018, but won't be ready until 2023.
If we're being kind, it could be argued that the current Eastenders set was only meant to last two years and its lasted thirty, so there's been very good value from that, but what a hell of a lot of money to spend on such a dreary show, long past its best.
Perhaps Phil Mitchell will come and blow it all up.
