We don't blame you, Tan...

EastEnders star Jo Joyner has admitted she hasn’t watched back the moment when she messed up her lines during a live episode of the soap.

Jo’s character Tanya Branning returned to Albert Square for pal Jane Beale’s wedding to her ex Ian Beale. But Jo accidentally called Ian by the name of the actor who plays him – Adam Woodyatt.


    Jo told the Daily Mail: “I haven’t watched it back because I don’t generally watch myself back much anyway unless I really feel like I need to – and I felt like I probably don’t need to, although I probably will do one day.

    “I don’t need to see that! And people are sending it to me on my feed anyway saying: “Look at the face – the face when you say someone’s name wrong!”

    But the actress has been able to see the funny side.

    She said: “It was a bad moment for me. But I’ve learnt I’ve got such great Twitter followers, such great support around me, such great friends and family – the cast and crew, everybody was so forgiving.

    “I’ve got a great sense of humour, I can see how that’s funny – after I’ve got over it and gone on the next night!

    “It’s EastEnders’ live anniversary, it’s not going to go away for a while is it? Thanks to my mum, I’m quite down to earth about these things.

    “I’ve got a good sense of humour and so have my Twitter followers. What they’ve sent me is funny – it’s not been cruel or harsh – I can deal with it.”
