EastEnders viewers stunned by Robbie's insensitive comment to Donna

It was all a bit cringe!

It was a Valentine's Day to remember for Walford's Donnie Yates and Robbie Jackson in last night's EastEnders - in more ways than one.

But sadly all the viewers will remember is yet another gaffe when Robbie told Donna - who uses a wheelchair - to run!

Cash-strapped Donna had done her best to make some wonga from Albert Square's hapless chaps, by spray-painting white flowers red and selling them as top-price roses for Valentine's Day.

At first the plan seemed to work.

But later, as Robbie wooed Donna with a real red rose, a hoard of disgruntled customers arrived - marching towards Donna brandishing their flowers angrily.

So Robbie just told Donna who's in a wheelchair to RUN. I am howling with laughter.

"They don't look happy," Robbie said.

"No they don't, let's get out of here," Donna agreed.

And that's when Robbie said: "RUN!"
