EastEnders star Rita Simmons has revealed fans send her scripts that detail lots of ways Roxy Mitchell could return from the dead – and it seems she's convinced.
The 46-year-old actress first set foot in Albert Square as Roxy back in 2007 – alongside her sister and bestie Ronnie.
But the nation was left devastated when show bosses axed the two sisters and killed them off in a tragic episode that aired in 2017.

In one of the long-running soap’s most controversial episodes ever, the sisters met their untimely deaths by drowning together on Ronnie’s wedding day.
And it seems fans still have not gotten over Rita’s exit – and as a result have come up with a plethora of ways her character could return from the dead.
Rita told the Radio Times : “To this day, I will get – whether it’s tweets, whether it’s someone in the street, whether it’s someone on Instagram, whether it’s a parent of a school – not that I go to school anymore: ‘Why did they kill you? Why did they kill you? I stopped watching. Come back, come back.'”
“I get it every day. I get scripts sent to me of ideas of how to come back from fans.”
Rita went on: “Fans send me scripts that they’ve written. It has not stopped in six years.”
Those scripts appear to be good enough as Rita even admitted she’s convinced by the stories.
“If you see some of the scripts I’ve seen, I mean, who knows? The whole cliché of ‘never say never’, I don’t know,” she said, when asked if she would return to the BBC soap.
It comes after earlier his year, Rita revealed that she had a hysterectomy.
The soap star had the op after suffering from “debilitating” periods, which she said affected her ability to work and had an impact on her Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and anxiety.
Speaking exclusively to OK! magazine, she said that “health comes first” but that the procedure had taken away her chance to have more children.
Rita, who is mum to 16-year-old twins Jaimee and Maiya, said: “As a woman, we often take for granted that you can get pregnant and then when you are not able to and the choice is taken away.
