EastEnders viewers were left stunned during Monday night's episode when show bosses appeared to make use of a toy doll rather than a live baby in a hilarious blunder.
Soap fans watched as Chelsea dramatically went into labour at just 24 weeks after her abuser husband Gray Atkins launched a verbal assault on her.
Viewers recently saw Chelsea attempting to flee the UK after discovering Gray had murdered his ex-wife Chantelle.
However, her efforts fell short, and she was brought back to him by Mitch despite her desperate pleas for help.
Then on Monday night, fans watched as murderer Gray began to verbally lay into Chelsea for trying to leave him.
And the stress of the abuse ultimately proved too much for Chelsea who began to feel pains in her stomach before her water broke, leaving Gray to call for an ambulance.
And while viewers were caught up in the drama of Chelsea's intense labour, other fans couldn't help noticing the Albert Square resident had given birth to a doll.
Viewers were in hysterics as they joked that it looked like the doll from the horror movie Annabelle and branded it "the worst fake baby doll" they've ever seen.
One fan commented: "Did Chelsea just give birth to an Annabelle doll?"
A tickled viewer excitedly penned: "CANT COPE WITH THE ANNABELLE DOLL ON #eastenders, ITS SENT ME INTO ORBIT"(sic).
"That is the worst fake baby doll I've ever seen," culture writer Jason Okundaye remarked. "Looks like one of them alien toys you grew in an egg."
A fourth fumed: "Sure I saw that doll in the X Files 20 years ago."
"When you're properly engrossed in the episode then the sh****t fake baby makes you rupture something from laughing. That was shocking," a viewer quipped.
Another added: "Why did #EastEnders even bother showing Chelsea's baby?? The baby looked ridiculously fake, even Baby Born looked more real".
