EastEnders managed to slip a controversial last-minute politics scene tonight that revealed who some of the characters voted for.
Just hours after the Conservative Party gained a landslide majority – the clever clogs at EastEnders filmed a quick scene to insert into the middle of Friday's episode.
When asked if she was coming to Ian Beale's campaign launch, Karen Taylor claimed she would "rather eat a box of washing powder" than listen to more politics.
It came as no surprise that Kathy revealed Ian was pleased with the election result – but viewers were stunned that she was a strong Brexiteer.
She said: "I just think people voted for something three years ago and they want that to happen. Everyone is sick of being stuck. Going nowhere."
Karen claimed she would give Ian a sign and a mop to put on his head.
She confessed: "I haven’t even heard of half these places that have voted Tory."
Hitting back, Kathy said: "That's half the problem. Londoners forget half the country exists."
Giving his two cents, young Bobby Beale said: "I just hope the country isn’t broken by the time I get to vote."
Karen then made a cheeky dig at Boris Johnson over the fridge scandal.
As she left, Karen said: "Well I’m going to hide…in the fridge."
EastEnders viewers took to Twitter after watching the hilarious scene.
One fan said: "Hahaha politics and #Eastenders is a match made in heaven #ImGonnaGoRaidTheFridge who is the genius that put that line in.. I bow down"
"Hahaha love how Karen mentioned the fridge when it come to politics," added another.
A third said: "EASTENDERS EVEN MENTIONED BORIS JOHNSON HIDING IN THE FRIDGE"
There was also a lot of controversy over Kathy's remarks about Brexit .
"Kathy Beale a Tory????? Say it ain't so," asked one viewer.
Another added: "Kathy Beale is a massive tory"
"Why are viewers shocked at Kathy defending Conservatives? She & Ian are business class," argued a third.
