Emmerdale fans spot massive blunder as Jacob Gallagher’s birthday moves forward a month
EMMERDALE viewers have been left scratching their heads after spotting a massive blunder.
IT’s been revealed that tonight Jacob Gallagher will be celebrating his 16th birthday – but eagle-eyed fans have spotted his actual birthday is at the end of March.
The character, played by Joe-Warren Plant, is currently at the centre of a major plot and being groomed by evil schoolteacher Maya Stepney (Louisa Clein).
The storyline continues tonight as Maya suggests they spend time alone on his birthday.
Jacob and his loved ones also gather for his birthday party at the cafe.
But some viewers, however, have pointed out that Jacob’s birthday was previously on March 31.
Fans immediately took to Twitter to point out this lapse in continuity in his caharcter.
One said: “I thought Jacob’s birthday was the 31st of March? Maybe I dreamt it?”
While another said: “@emmerdale I thought Jacob’s birthday was the 31st of March ? Maybe I dreamt it ?”
Meanwhile, last night Emmerdale fans said they “couldn’t watch” as paedophile Maya kissed a topless Jacob after persuading him to have sex with her.
Yesterday the sick teacher stopped herself from bedding the 15-year-old schoolboy, but only after the pair stripped off in his room.
Maya – who is dating his dad – spotted a picture of Jacob and David on the teenager’s shelf and suddenly changed her mind.
But later, as his family discussed plans for his 16th birthday party, she whispered to him that they will try again.

She told him in the Woolpack pub: “Building up to it is the best bit. I’m not going to let this pizza and pop party be the highlight of your birthday. Let me give you a night to remember.”
Viewers were left outraged by the uncomfortable scenes and took to Twitter in their droves to complain.
Watch Emmerdale tonight at 7pm on ITV to see what happens
