There was another phone-related EastEnders blunder in Thursday night’s episode

Did you spot this?


Yet again, here we are talking about another EastEnders blunder.

In recent days, we’ve seen eagle-eyed viewers jump on the show for a couple of mistakes that many of us would have quite easily missed.

First, viewers claimed the show’s producers had  accidentally given away a major ‘whodunnit’ plot line. After that, it was pointed out that the dream Dorset holiday cottage that Ronnie Mitchell was booking for her family over the Christmas period was actually the one-time Stratford-upon-Avon residence of Anne Hathaway (William Shakespeare’s other half, not the American actress).

Not even a week on from that, the Radio Times have spotted another continuity error on Thursday night’s episode.

If you tuned in, you may recall that Billy received a call from Honey during the show. Honey’s number was clearly shown as being 07516 844447.

Minutes later, Phil – who had been dying a slow death of liver failure – fired over a text to his mate Tony from his hospital bed.

As the RT point out, the number used by Tony is exactly the same one used by Honey.

This isn’t the first time such a thing has happened in EastEnders, either. In November, viewers noticed that Billy and Zainab appeared to have the same number too.
