Troubled teen Bobby Beale’s visions of his dead sister Lucy may be creepy enough already, but EastEnders fans have an additional reason to be freaked out.
Viewers who caught Monday’s episode of the BBC1 soap thought Hetti Bywater’s body double wasn’t exactly a dead ringer for the actress – and following the broadcast, they took to Twitter to point out their observations:
What the hells going on with these visions of Lucy? The woman looks in her 50s and sounds nothing like her? #eastenders

As the latter tries to reassure Bobby (Clay Milner Russell), he continues to be plagued by Lucy’s voice. And, by Thursday, this struggle to come to terms with everything that’s happened to him leads to Bobby ending up in a very dangerous situation…
