EastEnders ambulance crash gaffe fest – did you spot these?

NOTHING gets past these eagle-eyed EastEnders fans.


A gas explosion rocked Albert Square last week that and in the wake of mass devastation, Walford residents were hit with a shooting, restaurant fire, car crash and and two deaths.

While the characters struggled to put overcome the chaos, audiences struggled to get their heads round one scene in particular – the car crash.

Johnny Carter – who was almost fatally shot by new neighbour Ted Murray in the aftermath of the epic blast – was travelling with him mum Linda Carter to hospital when disaster struck, and the ambulance they were travelling in was taken off the road in one fowl swoop when a lorry careered into it.

DISASTER: The ambulance carrying Linda and Johnny collided with a lorry

The driver of the ambulance, Johnny and Linda all managed to survive the crash, but nothing was said for the paramedic in the back of the vehicle and the people in the lorry.

While Jack Branning rushed to help Linda and Johnny, none of the characters paid any attention to the medical worker who lied lifeless just inches away.

And naturally, attentive viewers picked up on this blunder and had no problem in pointing out the blunder on Twitter.

One person tweeted: “What happened to the other paramedic in the back of the ambulance on Eastenders? Was he OK?”

“I hope that other paramedic is ok as no one really acknowledged him or cared,” observed another.

It wasn’t just the potentially dead worker that was a cause for concern as fans also noticed that the fate of the lorry driver wasn’t mentioned whatsoever either.

“So what happened to that lorry driver?” asked one.

Another slammed: “What happened to lorry that hit ambulance? So many things wrong with this!”

If that wasn’t enough, questions were also raised when viewers also spotted another gaffe that aired during Friday’s episode.

FORGOTTEN: The paramedic and the driver of the lorry weren’t mentioned

Jack – who arrived on the scene to help break Linda and Johnny out of the ambulance and to assist in nursing a dying Johnny – was wearing a crisp white t-shirt.

After performing some lifesaving treatment attention on a blood-soaked Johnny, Jack’s shirt remained completely spotless – and fans weren’t having any of it.

One person wrote: “Jack’s t shirt still white throughout all the carnage,” with an eye-rolling emoji.

CLEAN: Jack’s shirt was spotless despite breaking into an ambulance and giving medical help

“So Jack has attended the crash scene, and had to perform a medical task and his shirt is still clean and white?!” said another.

Aside from the epic car crash finds, viewers also got their knickers in a twist when Steven Beale died following a cardiac arrest.
