EastEnders fans were left scratching their heads over a bizarre voiceover 'blunder' in a tense scene involving Karen Taylor.
In tonight's tense episode, 7 December, Phil Mitchell continued to accuse her of being involved in the kidnapping of Sharon's son Albie, reports the Daily Mirror. Despite Karen covering for her son Keanu in The Queen Vic pub and claiming it was all her idea amid dramatic scenes, viewers were more distracted by a voiceover blunder.
As Karen nervously scanned the room, Elaine could be heard shouting: "Filth, that's what you are – filth!" in what was clearly a voiceover, rather than being recorded at the time of filming on the set.
Fans quickly noticed the error, with one writing: "Obsessed with voiceover Elaine calling Karen filth # EastEnders," while another added: "One negative from tonight's #EastEnders – Elaine's voiceover in the pub. It sounded like a voiceover."
"Elaine's voiceover was annoying," another fan wrote, while a fourth viewer said: "That was so odd, they didn't try to blend her voice in at all." A fifth took to social media to comment: "That voiceover! A mistake there."
Karen Taylor's exit from EastEnders is likely to be a big one, after actress Lorraine Stanley was asked to leave the show – fans have been speculating for weeks over how she may leave.
Speaking about her departure, as she broke the silence on her exit, she said: "I was sad, it was a mix of emotions, it's sad but it's exciting as now I can go and do what I want. I just want people to remember her as the best mum on the square, a heart of gold, she'd give you her last fiver and would do anything for her kids – a bit like myself."
Lorraine also took to Instagram to thank her fans for their kind words after the news came out. She wrote: "Hey everyone! I'm so grateful for all of your lovely messages this past week. Thank you to Daran Little for creating the Taylors and to the BBC for giving me the opportunity to play such a fabulous character, I'll be sad to be saying goodbye to Karen Taylor and will miss all the cast and crew at EastEnders," she explained of her impending exit.
"However I'm looking forward to my next chapter and excited about being a jobbing Actor again and starting new ventures. Again your kind words of support have been amazing!!! I'm going to miss my Taylor/Baker famalam Clair Norris, Danny Walters, Roger Griffiths and Matthew Morrison. Much love."
