EastEnders fans have ripped into the soap for 'copying' Corrie
This has to have been a mistake, right?
If you're a long-time soap obsessive (this is a judgement-free space, by the way), you might have picked up on something odd in last night's episode of EastEnders.
Poor Stacey Fowler has been through the ringer lately, having had a seizure last week and gone into early labour.
She's recovering in hospital with her newborn daughter, though the baby was put on a respirator after being born premature during an emergency C-section.
As she worried that she couldn't bond with the child, her husband Martin her to talk about choosing a name for the little girl.
They settled on the name Hope - the same name that Fiz Stape gave her premature baby girl in Coronation Street in 2010.
Viewers pointed out that the name - and reason behind it - felt a little familiar.

Eh I'm not a big fan of Stacey calling her daughter Hope. It's a bit too close to the same idea behind Hope in Corrie #EastEnders

Others criticised the show for opting for a rather obvious name.
