The Boarding Schools' Association (BSA) are not happy with the current EastEnders storyline which implies, in their opinion, that boarding schools are "corrupt".
Ian revealed to Jane that Bobby can start school eight months early due to an apparent bribe.
The storyline has been branded "fanciful and damaging" by the company that represents around 500 independent state boarding schools in the UK.
Responding to the claims, a spokesperson for the show said: "EastEnders is a drama and although we cover real life issues, our characters are fictional.
"At no point has EastEnders ever implied that Bobby Beale received his place at boarding school through anything other than merit. His father, Ian, merely suggested that he would like to make a donation in the hope of speeding up the process."
