Eastenders and Star Wars: Here are the best backgrounds for your video chats

Published at 4:38pm 19th May 2020.

Many of us are finding ourselves making video calls to friends, loved ones and work colleagues more than we ever imagined.

And while it can be nice to catch up or work without leaving the house, sometimes we don't want to be showing off how messy our homes are.

Or maybe you want to just impress your mates with a cool virtual green screen.

Whatever your motivation, we've compiled a list of our favourite backgrounds for your video chats - whether that's in Zoom, Teams or anything else that can accept a replacement image.

Star Wars

The official Star Wars website released a huge number of images from the films. So you can send a transmission from the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon or within the Death Star.

BBC TV sets

The Beeb has done an amazing job of offering up high-res versions of stills from a huge number of its shows - from Hancock's Half Hour in 1961 up to more modern productions of Eastenders, Doctor Who, Top of The Pops, Strictly Come Dancing, Match Of The Day and more.
