Fans were quick to point out the odd costume detail, with one person writing in the comments section: "Why two watches?? That's what I want to know. Or is that top-secret," while another questioned: "Do you wear two watches?"

This isn't the first time fans have noticed Ralf's double accessory as in a previous video, one person commented: "Why two watches Ralf… just curious and nosey," while another formed their own theory, writing: "I'm guessing one's Ralf's own and the other he wears as Neville and possibly doesn't work."

The Neville Parker actor's latest video comes just days after he confirmed the return of fan favourite star Élizabeth Bourgine to the set. 

The 63-year-old French actress, who has played the role of beloved matriarch Mayoress Catherine Bordey ever since the drama began back in 2011, could be seen on Ralf's Instagram back in costume as her character.

Fans were delighted with the news, with many taking to the comments section to express their joy. One person wrote: "She's so amazing! I love her!" while another added: "Yessss, I love her and her character."
