Eastenders fans stunned by early evening 'sex scene' broadcast

A 'sex scene' on Eastenders last night got some of the soap's fans hot under the collar.

The scene, featuring Lee Carter (Danny-Boy Hatchard) and new wife Whitney (Shona McGarty) in bed, showed the pair on top of each other briefly before Lee rolled away.

Whitney says "It happens to a lot of men" in reference to Lee's bedroom struggles, before adding "look we can just cuddle if you want." 

While most viewers joked about the awkward scene, there were some complaints about such a scene being broadcast before the 9pm watershed.

Despite numerous attempts by Whitney, the couple's intimacy issues have been a theme since they got married and we wonder where all this is headed.

We've seen Lee fail to cope with pressure well before so we wonder if Whitney's tactics might be the wrong approach right now.
