EastEnders blunder: Did you spot this huge gaffe during Michelle Fowler’s crash scene?

Eagle-eyed viewers noticed an extra-character appearance just moments after Michelle’s fatal collision.

As the camera began panning across the scene to show the full extent of the smashed up chip shop, a man could be seen at the bottom of the screen.

Hiding behind the car and staring down the lens, the crew member appeared in full view wearing a beanie hat accompanied by a head torch.

Viewers of the BBC soap didn’t let the error go unnoticed and took to social media in their droves to share what they’d spotted, to see if anybody else had noticed.

Scriptwriters wrote in four potential deaths as Preston Cooper (Martin Anzor), Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth) and Kush Kazemi (Davood Ghadami) were all visibly caught in the path of the car.

Michelle was last seen slumped over her steering wheel as shards of glass fell onto her.

EastEnders bosses received backlash for the terrifying scene, which came less than a week after London’s terror attack.

The BBC have been contacted regarding the episode’s content.

EastEnders continues this Thursday on BBC One at 7:30pm.
