Footage also shows them in the Minute Mart and cafe on the soap’s Elstree Studios set in Borehamwood, Herts.

A source said: “They realised that the set would be largely empty because of lockdown so they thought they’d try their luck.

“They had the freedom of the place, filming inside the shop, pub and wandering around the square.

“But the soap’s security team clocked them and led them out of the site not long after. They jumped the perimeter barriers and made a run for it before the police arrived.”
