EastEnders’ biggest blunders after Ruby Allen’s legs disappear while kissing Max Branning

During Tuesday's, 4 June, instalment of EastEnders, viewers were surprised as Ruby Allen's legs disappeared during a scene.

No, this wasn't some horrific car accident or plot line involving amputation, but actually an apparent editing error.

Ruby, who is played by Louisa Lytton, leant across the table to kiss her love interest Max Branning, who is played by Jake Wood.

Fans were stunned when it suddenly appeared as if she was floating in mid air as her bottom half totally disappeared.

On Twitter, viewers were quick to air their confusion. One person wrote: "Did anyone notice ruby had lost her legs tonight?", while another added: "Did anyone notice ruby had lost her legs tonight?"

A third viewer simply commented: "Where did Ruby's legs go".

However, this isn't the only blunder that the popular soap has made over the years. There has been many moments in Albert Square that have left viewers scratching their heads

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at EastEnders’ biggest blunders of all time…

Date drama

Eagle-eyed viewers of the soap spotted an awkward blunder during a visit to Albert Square.

As Ian Beale’s phone lit up, they caught view of a text message received from Dot Cotton, and quickly spotted that the date on the phone read Thursday 19 March, when the episode was airing on Monday 23 March.

One fan wrote as a result: “I was going to berate the folk of Walford for their irresponsible socialising….. but I see that by Ian's phone the date is Thursday 19th March."

EastEnders, much like other soaps, has been forced to change its schedule of episodes in order to keep the drama on air as long as possible amid the coronavirus pandemic.

A Shakespearean slip up

It was a funny moment when viewers picked up on a Shakespearean slip up during one episode of EastEnders.

The blunder occurred between Ronnie and Roxy Mitchell, as Ronnie tried to plan a holiday with Jack Branning.

Her character was seen looking up a gorgeous Dorset-based cottage for the getaway but fans instantly spotted a problem.


Ronnie had in fact chosen the iconic Stratford-Upon-Avon house where Anne Hathaway, the wife of William Shakespeare, grew up. Awkward.

One viewer blasted the soap, saying: “Anne Hathaway's being used as a holiday cottage in Dorset, how can #EastEnders think no one would spot there error! Someone needs the chop!!”

Another joked: “Nice to see Ronnie from Eastenders trying to book Anne Hathaway's Cottage for a Christmas getaway.”

“How’s Adam?”

Who can forget “how’s Adam?” – For a bit of back story, this blunder took place during EastEnder’s live episode and, of course, that opens up the floor for a whole host of things to go wrong.

Tanya Branning was the one to make the slip up whilst referring to Ian Beale in a conversation with Jane.

Actress Jo Joyner, who plays Tanya Branning, accidentally called Ian ‘Adam’, which is the name of the actor who plays him. It was a hide-behind-your-sofa kind of awkward.

Fatal faux pas

Another live episode of the soap, which reportedly cost £700,000 to make, saw viewers picking up on a blunder as Bradley Branning slipped off a roof to his death.

The moment was ruined for some viewers as they noticed Charlie Clements, who played Bradley in the soap, moving his hand despite dying from the fall.

A Beale blunder

Fans of EastEnders were quick to point out a blunder involving Kathy Beale after she suggested she had voted in the last UK general election.

The problem was, when the last election was held she’d been in hiding after faking her own death which, viewers noted, would’ve made it extremely difficult for her to vote!

One person wrote: “How the hell did Kathy vote? She's been pretending to be dead for the last 10 years. #EastEnders”

Another added: “How does Kathy have a polling card when she's meant to have been dead since 2006 #eastenders.”

Ben forgets he’s deaf

Fans were left baffled after a scene in the soap which saw Ben Mitchell forget he was deaf.

The character confronted his captors and then appeared to reply to a question.

The ring leader of the menacing bad boy gang told Ben: “It doesn't have to be like this. You and your mate could just walk away."

Yet a defiant Ben replied: “So long as I suddenly go deaf, blind and stupid so far as you lot are concerned?"

Not only did Ben reply to the question but also insinuated that he wasn’t already deaf.

Taking to social media to voice their confusion, one confused fan wrote: "So long's I suddenly go blind, deaf, and mute, right?" Ben mate, you're supposed to be deaf already. #EastEnders".

Sonia Fowler becomes pregnant without being pregnant

EastEnders producers seemingly found it pretty hard to hide Natalie Cassidy’s pregnancy as her character Sonia was seen pregnant in the soap too.
