The mistaken subtitles contained commentary like, "Look, if you ain't seen Sasha, just do one, yeah? No-one wants you here,” and, "So it was him in your room,” as well as, "You can't come here outside of contact, or Mum will get into trouble. Is that what you want? Or for her and Kev to be a family? With you and Murphy and the baby. And me."

BBC quickly corrected the problem but some commented that they preferred the error.
