Ronnie Mitchell is set to tell her sister Roxy about how their later father Archie Mitchell raped her when she was a teenager, but the conversation is overheard by several members of her family
Ronnie Mitchell will finally tell her sister Roxy she was sexually abused by their father as a teenager.
The nightclub owner will be left distraught after catching a glimpse of an old family movie - which included footage of her late dad Archie Mitchell (Larry Lamb) - and will be moved to reveal the terrible abuse she suffered from him when she was younger.
Actress Samantha Womack - who plays Ronnie - said: "She tells Roxy what Archie did to her. She tells her that he raped her one night when she was 13. What she doesn't realise is that her mother Glenda and auntie Peggy have brought her fiance Jack back to the flat. She turns around and sees them. and they've heard every word."
Although it is not known how the group react to the news, Samantha reveals her relationship to Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) could end up in jeopardy.
She added to Inside Soap magazine: "To marry Jack and have his kids is what Ronnie's character always wanted. But she's a character who seems destined never to be happy. She's a tragic heroine. So, yes, the wedding could all go wrong."
