Ex-EastEnders star Samantha Womack looks dramatically different from Ronnie Mitchell after ditching blonde hair

As much as it pains us to admit, the days of Ronnie Mitchell are well and truly over – especially now that former EastEnders star Samantha Womack has ditched her for good.

Sure, Samantha actually left the soap almost two years ago, but the actress has now showed off her dramatic new look that couldn’t be further from the Mitchell sister’s style.

Yes, gone are the days of Ronnie’s poker-straight blonde hair, as earlier this year Samantha switched her look up by popping to the salon and getting a dye job.

An excellent one at that, too.

Although we doubt it, there is chance that Samantha’s new look is part of her master plan to return to EastEnders as Ronnie and Roxy’s “weird Australian twin sister”.

Speaking earlier this year about her and Rita Simons’ controversial exit from the soap, Samantha admitted she “hated” the idea that she couldn’t return as the iconic character.

“I’d have loved to go back at some point,” she said. “The Mitchell family are such a huge part of that show’s culture – Peggy had gone and then the two Mitchell sisters. It’s a shame to rip out the roots of such a long-serving family.

“The last year and a half has been so exciting and a bit like a rebirth, but I hate the idea that I can’t go back – unless I come back as some weird Australian twin sister!”
