EastEnders fans were left confused by the show’s Mick Carter on Tuesday evening after he referred to “lesbian tea”.
The character, played by Danny Dyer, told wife Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) to drink the mysterious beverage during the latest episode of the BBC One soap.
He said: “You can have a nice lesbian tea, sort your nut out,” as she stressed about moving.
On Twitter, viewers reacted with confusion over the remark, which is thought to mean any non-traditional tea such as fruit-infused tea.
