EastEnders tried to appeal to a younger generation last night – but failed completely. The long-running BBC soap is trying hard to court a new audience, and in their attempt to do so in the latest episode they messed up big time.
Viewers saw Louise Mitchell try and Snapchat a photo to Shakil Kazemi – except eagle-eyed fans noticed she wasn’t actually using the app. What’s worse is that Louise wasn’t even recording a video. One viewer rushed to Twitter, saying: “Did she just ask Shakil to snapchat her back via video” while another said: “Snap chat and camera roll not the same thing just saying”.
Another added: “Did this girl just tell a man to ‘snap back’ when she was recording on regular camera??” Other Twitter users just took the opportunity to poke fun at the soap’s “lame attempt” to appear trendy.
