The biggest newsmaker this week was of course Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts. The fam service was our gateway to return to the world of wizards and the apple of our teenage eye, Daniel Radcliffe. The cast and crew including Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Helena Bonham Carter and more alongside Dan walked through the hallways of Hogwarts again and reminisced the good old days. But turns out the makers of the reunion episode also goofed up at one point.

Her involvement was the maximum as compared to everyone else. While the special discussed her childhood and growing up with the franchise, is where the goof-up happened and the makers were confused between Emma Watson and Emma Roberts. Want to know how?
