Actress Rita Simons much-loved Roxy Mitchell is set for a dramatic departure from Walford. She’ll join onscreen sister Ronnie (Samantha Womack) in an unmissable exit from the show.

Having joined the show in 2007, Rita immediately won the hearts of the audience in the role of Roxy Mitchell and between her and Samantha Womack they created one of the most iconic duos EastEnders has ever seen.

Alongside Samantha, Rita was recently offered to take part in the same big storyline that will see the Mitchell sisters depart Walford. We’re keeping details of what’s in store firmly under wraps for now, but there are still lots of twists to come before they leave our screens.
