Eastenders blunder as characters look at renting Anne Hathaway's Cottage

Laura Kearns 15th Dec, 2016

EAGLE-eyed Eastenders fans spotted a blunder in a recent episode – that characters were looking at renting Anne Hathaway’s Cottage.

Of course, the 600 year-old home is not up for rental and is in fact the former home of Shakespeare’s wife.

Viewers watching the show saw Ronnie Mitchell planning a Christmas getaway with her fiance Jack Branning.

And while looking for a break in Dorset, the website shown on screen was for ‘Moonfleet Cottage’ but had a picture of the Shakespearian home.

Fan Claire Prosser wrote on Twitter: “Another blunder Eastenders looking at cottages in Dorset? The picture is Anne Hathaway’s cottage in Stratford upon Avon! Ohhh dear EE!”

Another user wrote: “Anne Hathaway’s being used as a holiday cottage in Dorset, how can Eastenders think no one would spot their error.”
