Eagle eyed viewers were quick to spot something fishy with one of the election day scenes.

As with many TV programmes that aired yesterday, Eastenders couldn't get through an episode without acknowledging the election and rightly so!

But they made a bit of a gaffe in one of their election scenes which didn't go unnoticed. 

Viewers of the soap dubbed a scene between Kathy and Jane as "cringeworthy" when they discussed the upcoming election and their trip to the polls.

In the awkward scene Kathy picks up her polling card and Jane asks "So which way are you going to swing?" to which she replies "My way, the same way I voted last time, same for you is it?"

This might seem like a normal conversation to some as many don't like to discuss who they are planning to vote for, except long-time fans of the show will remember that Kathy faked her death. 

She has supposedly been 'dead' for the past ten years and therefore wasn't around to vote in the 2015 election, this has left many asking how she is able to vote this time around?

Fans agreed it was fishy and took to Twitter to share their thoughts...

Eek, looks like the Eastenders scriptwriters suffered from a bit of an oversight there! Unless Kathy can't vote at all and just wants to get into the election spirit so is pretending to?

It seems unlikely! But in a programme that's suffered from It's fair share of blunders in the past we can safely say the awkward encounter will all be forgotten by tonight's episode!
