EastEnders’ Sharon Mitchell emotional scene marred by awkward editing fail

During Friday night's episode of EastEnders, a grieving Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean) headed to the Queen Vic to drown her sorrows.

There, she had a chat with Shirley Carter (Linda Henry), but fans noticed there was something rather strange happening with Sharon's glass.

Shirley brought a drink over or Sharon and there was already a half empty one by her too, as well as a bottle of beer.

The duo toasted to Sharon's dead son Denny Rickman Jr (Bleu Landau) and Sharon picked up the half empty glass, though when she put it to her mouth it had seemingly magically filled itself up.

Naturally, eagle-eyed EastEnders viewers noticed straight away and rushed to Twitter to share their finding.

One said: "Funny how Sharon picked up a half empty glass and then drunk out of a full glass."

Another tweeted: "Anyone else noticed Sharon picked up an empty glass and it was full when she drank? I need one of those kind of glasses myself."

A third wrote: "Why did Sharon pick up the nearly empty glass to toast and then drink from the nearly full one?"

And someone else joked: "Miracles do happen."

Sharon couldn't hold back the tears as Shirley paid tribute to teenage Denny, with the often stone-faced bar lady showing a softer side with the grieving mother.

Shirley said: "The whole of that boy's life you put him first. You even went without for him – and he was a real credit to you."

Her kind words sent Sharon over the edge, with her breaking down in heavy sobs as she cried: "He's dead, Shirley."

What Sharon doesn't know, though, is that she has even more heartbreak to come if she finds out how Denny died – and who was responsible.

Viewers know that her good friend Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) had locked Denny in a room on the boat and struggled to get him out in time.

Eventually, he and Denny were dragged out of the water but Denny didn't survive.

Denny left his mum a voice message explaining that Ian had locked him in and left him, but, as of yet, Sharon hasn't heard it.

How will she react if she ever does?
