Les Coker stunned wife and grandson in EastEnders last night when his alter-ego Christine was revealed. Many viewers took to social media to praise the acting and writing over the sensitive subject, others could not get get over how Christine looked a little like Ruth Langsford of This Morning.
Eamonn Holmes also joked:
Ruth also wrote on Twitter: "I'm flattered Les has modelled Christine on me!! x"
She added: "It's uncanny! x"
With all jokes aside, and remember it is all light-hearted, Roger Sloman and Lin Blakley who play Les and Pam Coker have done a fantastic job and viewers even praised Roger saying it has been his best acting so far in the soap. It is a very big subject to tackle and the story will be handled with the utmost sensitivity.
The future of the couple is unknown as the pair are set to be lonely this Christmas. We hope they will be back together by the new year. What do you think?
