Another echoed this, writing on Twitter on Tuesday: "It was very good but I have two questions, who pulled up Jacks trousers while his hands were tied behind his back and how did Anna trace a unknown phone number? #ThePact." 

A third wrote: "No one has answered my query about the trousers being pulled up in #thepact. There has to be an answer out there."

Meanwhile, episode four continued to reveal more and more about the night of Jack's death, which saw the group of colleagues, Nancy, Anna, Cat and Louie all take part in a prank shortly before his death.

After learning it was in fact Nancy who was behind the blackmail texts, viewers were saddened to see she had done it due to financial worries, and not because she knew what really happened to Jack.

Chatting to HELLO! in an exclusive interview, she said: "She's in so much emotional turmoil and to keep that going really took a toll.

"It's funny because your body doesn't know that it's not real. Your amygdala still fires up and then it's like 'Oh my god something really bad is happening!'"
