Eastenders Stormzy Reference

One Twitter user described the scene as "potentially the worst thing I've ever seen”.

Eastenders viewers are describing a scene on Monday night's episode as 'cringey' after characters referenced Stormzy.

During the show, high school student Travis Law-Hughes is seen challenging fellow pupil Keegan Bakert to recite Shakespeare in front of a group of their peers.

"What do you know about Stormzy?" Keegan questions, before Travis says: "Well, I do know that you're getting way too big for your boots," in a clear reference to the Grime MC's chart-topping track.

The crowd surrounding the students proceeds to break into a rendition of 'Big For You Boots', much to the embarrassment of viewers at home.

Stormzy fans immediately flocked to social media to mock the British soap.

"...all of my organs are cringing at that Stormzy scene in Eastenders." said one Twitter user.

"After seeing this stormzy thing on eastenders I've come to the sad conclusion I no longer wish to live." said another.

Stormzy is yet to comment on the scene.

In related news, the rapper took to the stage at Capital's Summertime Ball last weekend.

The show saw Stormzy perform his breakthrough hit 'Shut Up' to the 80,000 strong crowd, as well as this year's 'Big For Your Boots'.
