An easy mistake?

Actress Jane Danson, who plays Leanne Battersby in the Manchester soap didn't appreciate being listed as an EastEnders star by the RTE Guide.

On Wednesday the magazine tweeted a plug from this week's issue which features Jane Danson saying: "We chat to @bbceastenders star @RealJaneDanson as she tells us what's in store when Leanne Battersby announces her pregnancy!"

Oh dear...

The two shows are the biggest soap rivals in TV land so, you know, it's understandable she'd want to correct that unfortunate error.

Taking to Twitter, she addressed the magazine: "Erm I think you mean coronation street!!! I mean I  have only been there for 20 years!!!"

She added a crying lauging emoji so she wasn't too cut up about the issue.

Danson followed up her initial tweet by saying: "They had one job".

The RTE Guide took it well and blamed the mistake on "baby brain".

It's far from The Queen Vic she was raised.
