EastEnders’ Roxy and Ronnie Mitchell had a surprise reunion on today’s Loose Women.
Former EastEnders star Samantha Womack burst into tears when on-screen sister Rita Simons made a shock appearance in the studio.
Two years after their characters were killed off on New Year’s Day, the pair were reunited live on air.
Collapsing on the desk in shock, Samantha asked: "What are you doing here?"
After sharing a big hug, she added: "She’s the only person in the world, when I look at her she makes me cry immediately."
The on-screen sisters admitted that they were not happy with being killed off and were willing to act together again.
Samantha said: "We have talked about a few things. There’s been a couple of things offered but they have been too obvious."
Rita, who appeared on last year’s I’m A Celebrity, did not dismiss Andrea McLean’s suggestion of a spin-off.
After watching a montage of their best bits, she said: "It’s been two years. People to this day, we still get it fresh as they day we died, it’s like they’ve just been killed. It’s bizarre.
"There’s been quite a lot of talk about us getting together. But we want to wait for the right thing."
Samantha admitted that she was "sad" about their exit and got "territorial" over her character.
Earlier in the show, Samantha revealed that there could be some way back for Ronnie – but it would be tricky.
She said: "Pat came back as a ghost for one episode.
"You saw the body so I think that makes it slightly harder. It was tough killing that character for me."
Loose Women viewers were also left in tears as they watched the on-screen reunion.
One viewer said: "Ahhhhh Roxy and Ronnie are reunited omg"
Another added: "Omg I’m crying, Sam and Rita together again"
A third said: "Ronnie & Roxy reunited on #LooseWomen and yep, you bet I’m crying right now!"
*Loose Women airs weekdays on ITV at 12.30pm
