EastEnders fans spot blunder as the Minute Mart sells chocs from Tesco – The Sun

EASTENDERS fans were quick to spot another hilarious blunder on the BBC One soap last night as it was revealed the Minute Mart's chocolates are actually from Tesco.

Loyal shoppers spotted the branding on the chocolates when Jean Slater stumbled around the shop after being drugged by Kush and Shirley.

An EastEnders fan page on Twitter even identified the flavour, sharing photos of the Dark Chocolate Mint Thins box alongside Tesco's slogan.

They joked in their post: "Omg 😂🙄 #EastEnders #EveryLittleHelps"

But some fans didn't notice the accidental product placement as they were more focused on Jean, who was in trouble after Kush gave the cleaner an overdose of prescription pills.

Jean's friends and family have been growing increasingly concerned about her erratic outbursts in recent days – convinced that she's binned her medication.

In a bid to get her back on balance, Kush and Shirley crushed up the medication and snuck it into her food.

But the harrowing storyline has led fans to worry that Jean is going to die on the BBC One soap.

One fan tweeted: "Kush and Shirley about to murder Jean with all that oh my god #EastEnders"

Another added: "Omg kush could kill Jean #EastEnders."

It's not known if Jean is going to die, but actress Gillian Wright may well be back on set soon after the Government said TV and film crews could head back to work amid the coronavirus crisis.

Studios are in talks about reopening if they can stick to the social distancing rules and stay two metres apart, ministers said.

The move has sparked hopes filming of hit soaps such as EastEnders and Coronation Street could be up and running again.

BBC has currently suspended production of EastEnders and slashed the number of episodes it shows each week from four to two, to try and ration out storylines it had already filmed.

ITV has also halted filming of Corrie and Emmerdale – reducing the number of episodes per week.

And all movie production was put on hold after the country went into lockdown on March 23.

But Downing Street’s roadmap to ease the tough coronavirus restrictions could soon clear the sector to head back to work.

A Department for Culture spokesman said: “The Government is working closely with the screen sector to understand how different types of productions can comply with social distancing guidelines, and give confidence to people in the TV and film industries that there are safe ways in which they can return to work.”

It is believed the first to head back will be technicians involved in editing shows and films to help get them back on screen.
