AN entire household was thrown into blind panic when their landline rang during an episode of Eastenders.
The Howard family, from Stevenage, immediately took cover under the dining room table after the loud, bell-like sound sent them into a state of shock.
Mr Howard explained: “It was horrible. Ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ring. Over and over again.
“My wife totally freaked out and started yelling at me, ‘who is it?’ and ‘who on earth ringing at this time?’ The kids starting screaming and tried to climb out the window.
“We desperately tried to figure out who the hell it could be – but the truth is, we had no way of knowing.
“By the time we came up with the idea of answering it, it had stopped ringing.
“So fucking weird.”
