EastEnders fans can now buy Pat Butcher's earrings and honestly, take our money
It’s almost Comic Relief time again, and for this year’s Red Nose Day coming on March 17 the BBC is offering up some treasures from its vault in a free Telly Treasures Giveaway – with the prizes including earrings worn by EastEnders legend Pat Butcher (Pam St Clement).
Described as the ‘proverbial kitchen sink of vintage glam,’ there are three pairs of earrings on offer, all actually worn by Pam St Clement in the show, ranging from a multicoloured bejewelled pair to a slightly more tasteful set of faux pearls.
A trail fronted by Sharon Horgan and Lenny Rush revealed the covetable objects on offer, highlighting the ‘irreplaceable icons’ that were Pat’s earrings.
Between 1986 and 2016 Pat Butcher was a mainstay on EastEnders and was at the heart of some huge storylines. She was firmly embedded in the heart and soul of the Albert Square community and her rivalry/friendship with Peggy Mitchell (Barbara Windsor) and her relationship with stepdaughter Janine Butcher (Charlie Brooks) gave the show some of its most unforgettable scenes.
Throughout it all, Pat was never seen without a pair of gaudy, glitzy bad-taste earrings, a fashion accessory which became her trademark.
Viewers who want to own a piece of telly (and fashion) history can enter the draw free here, with the option to add a donation to Comic Relief, which will help to make a life-changing difference to people facing the toughest times of their lives.
With other prizes including scrubs, stethoscope and name badge worn and used by beloved character Ethan Hardy in Casualty and a school uniform from Waterloo Road, there are plenty of opportunities to get your hands on some seriously impressive BBC memorabilia. There’s even Craig Revel Horwood’s 10 paddle from Strictly Come Dancing – obviously only lightly used as he doesn’t give out 10s that easily.
Katie Taylor, Commissioning Editor, BBC Entertainment, said, ‘This is a fantastic chance for Telly Treasure hunters to win and own a bit of BBC TV magic and to help raise awareness of Comic Relief which changes the lives of people for the better.’
