THE mountainous cost of rebuilding a set of EastEnders has been slammed by MPs.
The BBC was indicted of handling a plan badly after it shot millions of pounds over budget.
The set changes are partial of a intrigue called E20, that will now cost looseness price payers £27million some-more than creatively expected.
The project, now costing £87million, is approaching to be finish in May 2023 — scarcely 5 years after than initial planned.
MPs listened a renouned soap’s set, built in 1984, is “no longer fit for purpose”.
Landmarks such as Albert Square and a Queen Vic are being rebuilt though being done to seem old.
The Public Accounts Committee pronounced it was unhappy by a BBC’s “complacency” in handling a project, quite in a early stages.
It supposed costs partly rose due to inflation in a building attention though pronounced a BBC underestimated a scale and complexity of a project.
E20 also includes work during BBC Elstree Centre, Herts.
A BBC mouthpiece said: “We strongly reject a idea that there has been any relief in handling this project.”
