EastEnders fans were left confused by a character's age appearing to change during tonight's episode.
Ian Beale's son, Bobby Beale, who is 17-years-old in the BBC One popular soap, was seen on the episode tonight making himself a dating profile.
But eagle-eyed fans were quick to clock that the teenager appeared to lie about his age on his profile.
Bobby, who killed his sister Lucy Beale when he was a child and later went to a child's detention centre for his horrific and controversial crime, put his age as 20 on his profile.
The episode then showed the character going on a date with a blonde teen – which many fans commented on Twitter looked like his deceased sister Lucy.
However, riddled with his anxiety, Bobby was extremely nervous before going on his date with the girl he met on the app.
And Bobby couldn't hack the date after she made a joke about prison before heading to the bathroom.
The girl joked: "I live with my dad but it could be worse I could be in prison!"
While in the bathroom, the character began panicking that his date and so did a runner himself.

Tragically the girl then came out of the bathroom to be greet by the fact her date Bobby had done a runner when he didn't need to.
Fans couldn't stop thinking about the fact Bobby's age had changed and questioned if it was a mistake by bosses, Bobby just lying or if producers have simply just aged his character as they sometimes do.
Taking to Twitter, one fan tweeted: "I’m guessing they changed Bobby’s age to 20 because you have to be 18 to use most dating app and he’s only 17 #EastEnders."
Another said: "Bobby putting his age as 20 on that app when he’s only 17. Same. #eastenders."
"have they changed bobby’s age or has he just changed it for the profile #eastenders," asked one fan.
"The profile pic! Also, since when is Bobby 20? #EastEnders," tweeted one.
