Former EastEnders star Rita Simons fuels hopes that Roxy could return


Former EastEnders star Rita Simmons has added fuel to fans’ hopes that her character Roxy Mitchell could potentially return to the show.

Rumours have been circulating like wildfire on Twitter after the actress responded to a tweet containing a side-by-side image of her character on the show with Amy, her on-screen daughter, who is played by Ellie Dadd.

She responded to the tweet by saying: “Is this my offspring?”

Upon seeing the tweet, one fan responded by saying: “Hopefully you get to share the screen with her one day,” with a praying-hands emoji.

However, another fan was quick to crush their dreams, responding: “Roxy died,” with an awkward grimacing-face emoji.

But that fan couldn’t rain on their parade for too long because Rita herself then replied, fuelling speculation that her character might indeed return to the show.

“So did Cathy. And Den. And Bobby Ewing,” she said, adding a devil emoji.

In EastEnders, Roxy’s daughter Amy, whose dad is Jack Branning, has been at the forefront of a self harming storyline recently. Things got so bad for the teen that earlier this month she was rushed to hospital.

After telling her brother Ricky that she “went too far” and that the bleeding wouldn’t stop, Ricky called an ambulance.

Last month, Sam Mitchell caught Amy self-harming, and, in emotional scenes asked the teen if she was missing her mum.

Roxy tragically died on New Year’s Day in 2017 alongside her sister Ronnie after they both drowned in a swimming pool. It would be difficult for the characters to come back from that, but this is soapland and anything is possible.

EastEnders airs on Mondays – Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer.
