Dating is hard at any age, let alone for a teenager with a murder conviction under his belt after killing his own sister.
But Bobby Beale (Clay Milner Russell) appears to be a reformed character since he shockingly ended the life of sibling Lucy back in 2014.
The youngest child of Ian Beale is now all grown-up and looking for love after being inspired by brother Peter to hit the dating scene.
During Thursday’s EastEnders episode (March 12) Bobby matched with a blonde teen on an online dating platform.
Meeting his potential new love interest at Ruby’s, he nervously told Jade: “So. The top looks nice. Not that. The material. The colour. Erm. I’m not looking at your…”

Jade laughed and said: “Okay, so are you from around here?”
Bobby looked awkward and replied: “No, well yes. Sometimes. Well, yeah mainly I’m from around here, but I just lived somewhere for a while. Yeah, quite a while.”
Just as Bobby was starting to relax, however, Vinny came over and broke the news about Karen’s disastrous date with serial killer Lucas.
Jade then said: “I lived with my dad for a while, lasted about three weeks. Would have been more fun being in prison.”
With little confidence and the mention of prison, Bobby lost his bottle halfway through his date and made a run for the door.
Eagle-eyed viewers spotted Bobby, who is actually 17, seemingly lie about his age on his dating profile which stated he is 20.
One fan on Twitter wrote: “Bobby putting his age as 20 on that app when he’s only 17. Same. #EastEnders.”
A second questioned: “Have they changed Bobby’s age or has he just changed it for the profile #EastEnders.”
A third wrote: “I’m guessing they changed Bobby’s age to 20 because you have to be 18 to use most dating app and he’s only 17 #EastEnders.”
During a Tweet, another viewer wrote: “Also has Bobby’s age changed or was he lying?.”
“For those questioning Bobby’s age, his birthday is 22 July 2003…he lied on his profile about being 20, that’s why him and his date were drinking orange juice and Lemonade #EastEnders”, said another.
EastEnders continues every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday on BBC One.
