Roxy Mitchell (Rita Simons) is about to become an extremely unhappy woman in ‘EastEnders’, after discovering that her new beau Aleks Shirovs (Kristian Kiehling) has been hiding a massive secret from her… he already has a wife in Latvia.
In fact it’s Alfie (Shane Richie) and Tamwar (Himesh Patel) who discover Aleks’s shocking secret, and Roxy flies off the handle when she discovers that he’s been lying to her all along.
In scenes that will air next month, Roxy angrily confronts Aleks about his secret marriage, but predictably the feisty club owner is not going to take this lying down.
Instead, it sounds like Aleks might want to watch his back from hereon in, as Roxy’s anger quickly subsides into feelings of revenge, and it doesn’t look like she’s going to rest until she’s got her own back on Aleks for his betrayal.
Aleks arrived in Walford back in January, and ever since his soap debut the character has been very secretive about his old life in his home country of Latvia and now it’s clear why...he’s been leading a double life and hiding a secret marriage from everyone.
Soap fans can look forward to Roxy’s confrontation - and watch her beginning to plot her revenge on Aleks - when these scenes air in ‘EastEnders’ on BBC One, Thursday, 3 July.
