‘EastEnders’ fans will bid farewell to Ronnie and Roxy Mitchell this Christmas, and in order to keep the exact nature of their exit under wraps, bosses have filmed a number of different endings.
It’s already been reported that the duo will be killed off, rather than take a final drive around the Square in a black cab, but that’s all we’ll get to find out for now.
The news comes following a report in the The Sun, which claims Samantha Womack and Rita Simons have filmed scenes in a swimming pool.
A spokesperson for the soap tells the paper: “We know how much our audience hate to have future storylines spoilt, so we do not comment on speculative stories.
“However, knowing there’s huge excitement about the departure of the iconic Mitchell sisters, to keep this plot under wraps we are filming various different endings.”
The scenes will certainly be a departure from some of the soap’s ongoing storylines, which have been a little more humdrum and everyday than usual.
Recent plot twists have seen Dot Cotton find out the laundrette is being turned into a dry cleaners, while another episode ended on Kim Fox declaring that she might not take any more driving lessons.
It’s not just Samantha and Rita who are leaving though, and in recent months a grand total of 10 stars have announced that they will no longer be starring in the soap.
