Jo Joyner laughed off her blunder in last night's EastEnders, when she referred to Ian Beale by his real name.

Jo returned to EastEnders for Ian's wedding to Jane Beale (Laurie Brett) and in a live insert asked Jane: "How's Adam?" The look on both actresses' faces after the error is priceless and social media erupted...

WATCH the episode from 4:20.

To Jo's credit, she responded on Twitter...

And Jake Wood and the EastEnders scriptwriters immortalised the blunder by creating a brand new scene for tonight...
