Troublemaker: Lauren Branning was known for testing her father Max’s limits on the show

In January 2018 fans were left baffled by a supposed ‘gaffe’ in the show when it appeared as though a picture of ‘old Lauren Branning’ was mistakenly used in a family photo, rather than a snap of Jacqueline Jossa.

Viewers believed the photo clearly showed Madeleine, who played the role until Jacqueline took over from her in 2010.

But a source told MailOnline at the time this wasn’t the case – and it was actually a picture of Jacqueline.

Big role: Madeline’s character was involved with a dramatic plot over Christmas 2007 which saw Max and Stacey’s affair revealed. Also pictured is Stacey [Lacey Turner] and Bradley [Charlie Clements]

Taking delight in the surprise appearance, one viewer wrote: ‘The pic max just stuck to the wall of the Brannings was of the OLD Lauren lol (sic).’

Another added: ‘Was that ‘other Lauren’ in the photo on EastEnders?’

Meanwhile, some onlookers questioned why the producers chose to include the picture.

One user said: ‘How are they going to have the old cast of Lauren in a family photo? Should have cut that photo part out.’
