EastEnders is to get an hour-long special for what is rumoured to be Samantha Womack and Rita Simons’s final episode.
The pair – who play Ronnie and Roxy Mitchell – have already had their exits from the BBC1 soap confirmed. But fans will have to wait and see if the Mitchell sisters bow out on 1st January – and whether they’ll ever be able to make a return…
Viewers have already seen Ronnie and Jack announce that they are to get married on New Year’s Day (surely a massive mistake, what with the sheer number of Walford nuptials that have gone awry on that date in the past?). But what drama will the occasion bring?
See below for a full list of when EastEnders can be seen. And, in case you’re wondering, the reason why there’s no episode on Friday 6 January is because Match of the Day Live is on instead:
New Years Day – 7:00pm (hour-long episode)
Monday 2 January – 8:00pm
Tuesday 3 January – 7:30pm
Thursday 5 January – 8:00pm (hour-long episode)
