Fans of the BBC's miserable soap drama, EastEnders were left terrified, with some unable to get to sleep, after Friday's episode in which Leo spies on Whitney from her loft, unbeknown to her.
Leo is obsessed with Whitney, and is determined to be close to her at all times, and at all costs.
EastEnders fans, however, were, as usual, thinking at a tangent, and cluttered social media with their inane questions:
"How is he surviving up there without food?"
"What does he do when he needs to go to the loo?"
"Doesn't he have a change of clothing? Even underpants?"
"What about all the spiders?"
But BBC producer, Bob Crass, said:
"We wouldn't want viewers to worry unnecessarily, so we think it's only right that we tell everyone that EastEnders isn't real. It's a fictional drama portraying characters in a fictional London suburb in the East End. Nothing that happens in the show is real. All the people you see are actors. A man called Leo is not in Whitney's loft. It's just made up."
EastEnders enthusiast, Jenny Walford, who changed her name as a tribute to her fandom, said:
"That would explain a lot of things. I never understood how Max Branning could survive being buried alive, and how Ian bounces back after Phil keeps shoving his head down the toilet."
