The EastEnders New Year’s Day special looks set to be nothing short of explosive as troubled sisters Ronnie and Roxy Mitchell prepare to bid Albert Square farewell for good. It’s already been revealed that actresses Samantha Womack (Ronnie) and Rita Simons (Roxy) will be departing the soap and it seems viewers are in for a drama-filled ride – SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH.
“It’s the end of an era,” Roxy says as the clip begins, seemingly foreshadowing the end of their nine-year run on the show. The clip fast-forwards to Ronnie’s wedding day, with a tearful Roxy telling her: “You’re lying to him [Jack]. And it’s because of me.”
As things starts to unravel, Ronnie then begs Jack not to force her to choose between him and her sister. But things seem set to reach a tragic end as the actresses were pictured filming dark scenes that showed them boozing whilst balancing on a wall over a bridge. When Ronnie goes for more champagne, she is met by a hellish scenario upon her return.
