Reacting to the new trailer giving fans have been given a glimpse about what to expect on New Year’s Day, Rita, who plays the role of Roxy Mitchell, tweeted: “I love you @Sam_Womack,” next to an emoji of a broken heart and the clip.”
Touched by the message, Sam, who plays Ronnie, wrote back: “Please don’t @OfficialRita I’m in tears. Love you.”
After a relatively happy Christmas Day in Walford when Max Branning returned to the Square and Phil Mitchell was given a new liver, it appears things are going to take a turn for the worse.
A new trailer has teased that Ronnie may possibly have to choose between Roxy who has recently started going off the rails or her beau Jack Branning on her wedding day.

“It’s the end of an era,” Roxy can be heard saying over a montage of the sisters in tears before she is seen standing by Ronnie who is dressed in her wedding dress and saying: “You’re lying to him and it’s because of me!”
What is the secret?
Not wanting to give up on her younger sister, Ronnie assures her: “I need you. You’re my sister.”
But it doesn’t look like Roxy will stay.
After pleading to Jack to not make her choose between him and Roxy, Ronnie can be seen standing by Roxy’s car when she declares: “Go back in there.
“You get on with the rest of your life.”
While it has been alleged that the pair will die when Roxy accidentally falls into a pool and Ronnie goes in to save her, Rita and Sam recently teased that multiple endings have been filmed.
