Eastenders actress Rita Simons has spoken of her distress at being written out of the soap.
Her character, Roxy Mitchell, was killed off in a brutal double drowning alongside sister Ronnie, played by Samantha Womack, on New Year’s Day.
Rita said: “I was already thinking about leaving. But did I want to die?
“No. And it wasn’t because I can’t now come back. Sam and I were devastated for other reasons.
“We really loved those characters. We both found watching our death scene really distressing.
“It’s horribly strange to see yourself and your best friend floating dead in a pool.” There’s no holiday for Holliday Grainger as the actress appears in not one but TWO new series.
As well as starring in the hit BBC detective drama Strike: The Silkworm, written by JK Rowling, the actress also stars in Channel 4’s new and unusual sci-fi Electric Dreams, alongside Richard Madden (pictured), which starts tonight.
Based on books by Philip K Dick, who wrote futuristic classics which inspired the films Minority Report, Blade Runner and Total Recall, viewers can expect to be taken on a journey of the imagination as they visit a different world in each of the 10 stand-alone episodes. Strictly contestant Charlotte Hawkins is in for some ribbing on the sofa tomorrow morning from Good Morning Britain co-presenter Piers Morgan. He who was quick to point out a recent magazine shoot with Charlotte left little to the imagination. Piers tweeted: “Crikey Hawkins... I said it’s all about the EYES not THIGHS!”
