Roxy (Rita Simons) and Ronnie Mitchell (Samantha Womack) are to return to Walford next week, the latter seeming surprisingly composed despite having fled E20 over Christmas after killing villainous Carl White.
Over last year’s festive season, viewers saw Ronnie leave the country for Ibiza after slamming Carl’s head with the boot lid of a car and sending the vehicle (with Carl’s corpse stashed inside) to the crusher. But now, Sharon (Letitia Dean) will be seen having a showdown with Ronnie where she reveals that she knows what happened with Carl. What’s more, Sharon is quick to threaten to call the police if Ronnie doesn’t leave.
Later in the week, Ronnie is caught by Phil (Steve McFadden) as she searches for incriminating evidence against her. Roxy demands to know what’s going on, but the three of them are interrupted by the sight of a police car pulling up outside. In the heat of the moment, a trapped Ronnie confesses to her sister that she killed Carl, leaving Roxy shell-shocked. Just what will the Mitchells do?
