On live television anything can happen, as Jo Joyner found out during a live segment of last night’s EastEnders.
After 10 long months fans of the soap will finally find out who killed Lucy Beale tonight. But last night there was a more important question on everyone’s mind: “How’s Adam?”
Actress Jo Joyner returned to EastEnders as Tanya Branning to attend Ian and Jane’s wedding and during a live scene with Laurie Brett (Jane) she appeared to momentarily forget she was being watched by millions on live TV. “How’s Adam?” she asked Laurie, as if they were having a chat in their dressing room. Of course her line was “How’s Ian?” but she referred to the character, played by Adam Woodyatt, by his real name.
Cue the most awkward three seconds of live TV we’ve seen in a long time:

Joyner later took to Twitter to acknowledge her mistake and reveal how “gutted” she was. On the up side she did find out how Adam was.
@dollyjoyner Thanks for asking, I'm fine.
