THE EX FILES!
What are the one-time stars of soap up to now?
Could Walford murderer Chrissie Watts be released from jail? According to Tracy Ann Oberman, who played her from 2004 to 2005, it’s a possibility – and she loves that people still ask her about the character. “I think it’s humbling,” she says. “Eastenders is an incredible experience – and to have been part of murdering Dirty Den was very exciting, so I’ll take it as a compliment. It was beautifully written. It’s great to have had a character who made that much of an impact.” But would she like to return? “You never say never,” she chuckles. “She’s done more time than most actual murderers!”
