EastEnders fans claim to spot continuity gaffe as soap tackles General Election

The scene saw characters Kathy and Jane discuss who to vote for.

EastEnders viewers believe they spotted a blunder when the soap ventured into General Election territory.

The scene saw characters Kathy and Jane discuss who to vote for.

Jane, played by Laurie Brett in the BBC1 soap, asked: “So which way are you going to swing?”

“My way … the same way I voted last time”, Gillian Taylforth’s alter-ego Kathy replied.

Some fans of the Albert Square soap said that as Kathy had faked her own death, she could not have voted in the last election in 2015.

But a source denied any inconsistency, saying that Kathy had specified she would vote the same way as she did the last time she cast her ballot, not at the last general election.

“Kathy’s at an age were she will have voted many times,” the source said.

“At no point did she say she voted in the last general election, merely she claimed she would vote the same way as she did the last time she voted.”
