Ian Beale must be a pretty big Arsenal fan.

Eastenders mainstay Adam Woodyatt – who plays Walford's hapless entrepreneur – couldn't hide his delight at meeting Thierry Henry during last night's National Television Awards.

Ian Beale should try and make it as professional footballer.

Thierry Henry should probably get used to getting this sort of acclaim at TV events. Arsenal's record goalscorer and 1998 World Cup winner made his punditry debut for Sky Sports last weekend, which means we'll be seeing a lot more of him on the small screen.

It turns out that Adam Woodyatt is a massive Liverpool fan – who knows what would have happened if Robbie Fowler showed up.
