EMMERDALE viewers have pointed out a “ludicrous” costume blunder that occurred as Meena Jutla continued to torture Andrea Tate in dramatic cat and mouse scenes.
The Yorkshire-based soap kicked off immediately from Wednesday night’s tense cliffhanger, with Meena giving chase to a petrified Andrea.
However, while the nail-biting episode left some viewers on the edge of their seats, other eagle-eyed fans were distracted by one small flaw.
During the lengthy fight scenes between the pair, neither character chose to take off their adventure helmets, leading to overwhelming scrutiny from fans on Twitter.
One dismayed viewer questioned: “Why is she chasing her with a stupid when they’ve both got helmets on?”
Echoing their comments, another fan added: “You would take your helmet off for a scrap, wouldn’t you?”
Someone else said: “I’m sorry, but I can’t help smiling at how ludicrous two characters with what looks like kids helmets on trying to act a scene calling for drama, but produces sniggers instead.”
While Andrea managed to get the better of Meena on several occasions, it was the killer nurse who, ultimately, had the last laugh.

Following Andrea’s fall, Meena approached her and finally removed her helmet, all while keeping her own on her head.
She then callously dragged Andrea from view, leaving her unconscious while a fire caused by a misfired flare began to spread around the maze.
