There has been upset reported among the EastEnders cast, as it has been revealed that two characters will be killed off.
Initial thoughts were that when Ronnie and Roxy Mitchell walk away from Walford, the story will be left open for them to return.
The cast are unhappy that Rita Simons and Samantha Womack will not get a chance to return in the future.
The Sun has reported that the pair will depart for good in an explosive New Years Eve special.
Apparently, the reason why this has caused so much angst among the cast, was because it was a surprise.
The fact that they hadn’t been consulted has angered many and some are allegedly shocked by the decision.
A source told The Sun on Sunday: “Everyone’s in shock. The cast are really upset as it’s come out of the blue.”
This seems to be the latest round of cuts by new producer Sean O’Connor, that has seen over a dozen characters written out of the BBC soap.
The source continued: “People are worried who’s going to be next.
“The script for Roxy and Ronnie’s deaths has been written, but none of the actors know what’s going to happen.”
An EastEnders spokesman hit back at the claims.
They said: “We know how much our audience hate to have any future storylines spoilt so we will not comment on speculative stories.
“At no point have we received any concerns from cast about any of our future storylines.”
What is for certain is that there will be more changes in the future, as soap bosses plot a path for the future.
