Ronnie's Recap

Post categories:

Guest Insider | 14:01 UK time, Monday, 4 July 2011

It's certainly going to be a big week for Ronnie as her trial finally heads to court, but the big question on everyone's lips is, *Insert best cockney accent* will she be goin' dahhhn?

Ronnie arrived with younger sister Roxy back in 2007, swapping the sun of Ibiza for the glitz and glam of Walford. Since then her time on the square has been non stop drama, including run-ins with estranged father Archie, long-lost daughter Danielle, smooth talking Jack, and fiery sister Roxy.

She immediately formed a close bond with 'Auntie Peg' and helped run the Vic as well as owning the sought after Eastend club, R&R. Ronnie also broke a few hearts in her time, with the on-again off-again relationship between her and Jack, which *finally* ended in marriage late 2010.

To help celebrate all this drama we have made a special 60 second recap video, looking back on Ronnie's time in the Square. Why not check it out and let us know what *your* favourite Ronnie moment has been...

    What has been your favourite Ronnie moment @Sheryl?

  • Comment number 3.

    well i liked when she found out that danielle was her daughter , and i liked the bond between her and her sister Roxy and also peggy! and i love her and jack together.

    I so so so hope Ronnie returns some day. EastEnders just isn't going to be the same without her! Samantha Womack is such a amazing actress. I definitely prefer the moments where Ronnie is happy and moments with Roxy & Jack. It's such a shame she wasn't allowed some happier moments during her time on the square. I have loved some of the moments with her last week. The talk she had with Roxy last week about going to prison was heart breaking. My wish for Ronnie would be that one day she returns to the square and is finally allowed a child with Jack! But I wish Sam all the best in the future - she'll definitely be missed. ♥

    i hope she doesnt get sent down with everything thats happened to her i hope she can go off into the sun-set with the full length eastenders tune!. and my fav moment is when she found out that danielle was her daughter it was such an awfuly good moment

  • Comment number 6.

    My favourite storylines are the happier ones... her wedding to Jack and the great relationship with Roxy. I think Samantha Womack is one of our best actresses and I hope we see her on TV again very soon. She is so good in drama and comedy.

    I will really miss Ronnie, she has had so many great storylines both fun and sad. I love the chemistry she has with Jack, Roxy and also the chemistry she had with Peggy, and I also the episodes where she was involved with Dot. My favourite storylines involving Ronnie are, the Vic fire aftermath and where she opened up to peggy about being pregnant, the wedding, and most definately the Danielle storyline. Samantha Womack is an amazing actress, and I will miss her not being in Eastenders, she is my fav character, and glad I have been able to meet her. And I think Samantha did an amazing job with the baby swap storyline, she was fantastic. x

    Loved every single storyline that Ronnie has had, especially whne she found out that Danielle was her daughter, although it didn't end happily, hopefully her exit will. Good Luck Samantha.
    You and Roxy are my fav charcters on Eastenders, well after the slater girls. After they had left i had loved the chemsitry that you had with Roxy.

    I think they really ruined Ronnie's character! She was brougt in with sister, Roxy, to liven up the square, bringing her parties in Ibiza with her! Fair enough, the whole story with Archie was entertaining (leading up to his murder) but she has become the most depressing woman to ever be screened on TV!
    Shame as I really liked her at first but now she does gives cold glares out of the window and is soo morbid.

  • Comment number 11.

    Ronnie Mitchell was my favorite character on the show and now that she has left i actually no longer see apoint in watching it. Her storylines were only what did ever keep me hooked i hate to see her leave I loved her and Jacks Rocky relastionship, I Love her Bond with Roxy! Its a right Let down she leaving! hope she returns back to the square till then my eastenders addiction shall be put on pause as none of the other storylines amuse me.

  • Comment number 12.

    Eastenders is not going to be the same without Ronnie Mitchell and EVERYBODY knows it! Eastenders ruined Ronnies character and for that I hate them and anyone who's reading this, YOU should hate them as well! Ronnie was the only entertaining character left in Walford and I've been following her storylines hoping for something promising but it's all been rubbish for her. I hope Ronnie leaves Walford and lives a happy life. BUT after Ronnies gone I'm not watching Eastenders ever again and I believe any TRUE Eastenders fan will join me in a strike from Eastenders the minute Ronnies gone!

  • Comment number 13.

    if you go on characters then go on ronnie's and click on watch video clips part where all her dates have been it says July 7 2011 gets sentenced to 3 years in prizon but gets forgived by kat in a nick of time, so she is not getting a happy ending she is going to jail fr 3 years! :( :( :(

    i don't want her to go to prizon!!! :( :( ee will be very boring without her!

  • Comment number 14.

    There's a lot of love for Ronnie on here which is nice :o) The storyline with Danielle certainly was a dramatic one and who can forget her rollercoaster relationship with Jack! So many great moments

    brilliant actress.

    Yeh, and while her trial heads to court there's gotta be another storyline in the court heading the other way?

    Ronnie Mitchell is the best character of this decade and for me personally the best character ever.
    She is complex and a joy to watch.
    I think the baby swap was a big mistake though. EE shouldn’t have over done the tragedy on Ronnie. She deserved a break.
    She is the most endearing character and Sam is amazing.
    I am considering switching off after Ronnie’s final episode.

    Hopefully she will return and EE will allow her to be happy with Jack. I really miss the strong, independent, intelligent and stunning woman that arrived in EE in 2007. Ronnie and Roxy uplifted the show at a time when it was really needed.

    Good luck Sam! Love you. I hope to see you back. Such a brilliant actress and a huge loss to EE.

    I think she should go in prison for a long time after what she did to Kat, and even though he's not the father, Alfie. She has had some rough times though and i think if she gets out of prison and returns to the show, they should give her a baby to keep.

  • Comment number 19.

    why does everyone love her??! she is depressing and moody... i think the show would be lucky to get rid of her because they really let themselves down with her character after the danielle and archie storyline!!!

  • Comment number 20.

    @Love u Stacey - Come on, this is just a soap. It is not nice what they did to Ronnie's character but to ask us to hate EE for that reason - no. Come on!

  • Comment number 21.

    Im really going to miss Ronnie,she has definately been my fave character. Her storylines have been really good. I really enjoyed the Danielle storyline even though it wasnt the outcome I wanted. I really hope she doesnt go to jail and I hope she comes back some day.

  • Comment number 22.

    Ronnie is EE for me. With her gone the show won't be the same. Great character played by a fantastic actress.
    Good luck Sam! Hope to see you soon.

  • Comment number 23.

    Ronnie will certainly be missed! How do you think Roxy and Jack will cope?

  • Comment number 24.

    i love Ronnie i don't want her to leave

  • Comment number 25.

    I'm going to really miss Ronnie too, she has been a great charactor. I do wish though she could have had some luck. too many bad things happened to her when she married Jack I was so hoping things would be good for Ronnie, but I suppose it is Eastenders. Do hope to see Ronnie again but best of luck to samantha I think she is a great actress.

  • Comment number 26.

    i love ronnie so sad if she would leave :( kat's a bitch changing her statement poor ronnie :(

  • Comment number 27.

    She shouldn't have to go, she is only human and blocked her pain. She should get help but not put away, where as Kat should be locked away. Keep strong Ronnie.

  • Comment number 28.

    Ronnine, is the best. I personally will miss her.

  • Comment number 29.

    I totally agree with random123!! Bring back Stacey Slater :)

  • Comment number 30.

    The sqaure will never be the same again without Ronnie!

  • Comment number 31.

    Jack will miss her dearly

    I hope Ronnie will back to EastEnders may next year

    I really felt sorry for Ronnie.

    I fancy Ronnie since her first appearance.

    I described Ronnie as:

    1 Sexy
    2 Attractive
    3 Beautiful
    4 Cute
    5 Lovely

    I hope Jack will ruin Michael Moon's Life as a Revenge for what he did to Ronnie

    Ronnie has been the very best character in EastEnders.

    EastEnders will Never Be The Same Again without Ronnie.

    Ronnie Does NOT deserve to go Prison.

    It DOES NOT matter what She did to kat.

    I Hated Michael Moon Since his first appearance, because I describe him as:

    1 Idiot
    2 Mental
    3 Coward
    4 manipulative
    5 Cheat
    6 Dirty
    7 The Ladies Now hate him
    8 Disgusting
    9 Low Life
    10 Rude
    11 Horrible
    12 he use women for SEX Not LOVE
    13 NOT Respective to His Father
    14 Sick Man
    15 Demon
    16 EVIL

    Michael Moon is MY WORST Enemy on Earth

    Michael Moon is Exactly same as Archie Mitchell (Both ARE EVIL DEMONS)

    I Won't rest until Michael Moon leaves EastEnders for Good.

    I'm 13 years old and have been watching EastEnders for as long as i can remember,(mainly my mom's fault as she has been an addict ever since the first screening in 1985) anywayz, Ronnie has been the best character i have seen on the soap and one of the best actresses if not the best. When her and Roxy first arrived on the square i didn't warm to her straight away like i did to Roxy. Roxy seemed upbeat and my type of character, whereas Ronnie was more hidden and in the shadow of Roxy i think. But when you saw her go to see her dad my opinion completely changed and i know it sounds stupid but i almost felt bad for not liking her. Every storyline she been given has received criticism, alot of it. I understand why Sam's leavin, i wouldn't wanna go to work everyday knowing i'll be crying for the majority of it. I hope she does something else. More comedy. I love 'Game On' !! Have every series on dvd, (just thought i'd add it in like.) EastEnders has lost its best character and i'll strongly be relying on Roxy to keep the spirit of the Mitchells up! Their a dying race! Anyway, good luck

    Samantha Womack is such a great actress. Her best time was when she first arrived in Walford. Despite the appallingly bad baby swap storyline & poor scripts she shone as one of the best actors that EE has ever had. Ronnie should never have gone to prison. The whole trial was a farce & unrealistic. Ronnie should have had a happy ending. Good luck Samantha.

  • Comment number 34.

    Im sad that Ronnie is leaving EastEnders im glad that her and Kat have shortened their differences and have accepted the consequences and i will miss her goodbye Ronnie i will miss you

  • Comment number 35.

    Kat was selfish and not understanding at all, yes it was wrong for her baby to be taken but if she put herself in Ronnies shoes, as she did for a while when thinking her baby was dead, she would have known how much the cot death would tear any mother apart, I think they portrayed Kat as selfish and a liar in court, and she would make a crap mother anyway, Jessie Wallace, just shouts, as me and other colleagues say all you hear is shouting not acting from her and alfie, boring boring, bring back ronni, she bought so much life to EE.

  • Comment number 36.

    Would have been great to have a twist to the storyline, Ronnie left pregnant and will come back with Jacks kid in the future.

  • Comment number 37.

    I miss you so much, Ronnie.
