Fans of both Neighbours and EastEnders joked that Sheila is in the wrong soap and said she stole the line from Peggy.

One fan asked if the line could be a nod to Dame Barbara Windsor, who played Peggy in EastEnders, who died in December 2020.

EastEnders: Peggy Mitchell ‘Get outta my pub’

Barbara played Peggy on and off from 1994 until her character’s death in 2016.

In 2000, Peggy discovered her husband Frank was planning to leave her and run away with his ex-wife Pat.

She decided to shame them by reading out a love letter Frank wrote for her, detailing their plan to flee.

Peggy proceeded to slap both Pat and Frank.

However just a short time later, Pat came back into The Queen Vic, which was owned and run by Peggy at the time.

Pat walked in and ordered a gin and tonic. Peggy insisted she served her, so she got her the drink and chucked it over her before yelling: “Get outta my pub.”
