EastEnders' Ronnie Branning tells her husband Jack that their baby isn't his - but he doesn't believe her
EastEnders' Ronnie Branning's husband doesn't believe her when she tries to tell him she swapped their baby with Kat Moon's son.
The troubled mum was devastated when he newborn James passed away from cot death and switched his body with that of little Tommy Moon on New Year's Eve (31.12.10) and after growing increasingly strained over the weight of her secret, she finally cracks and tells Jack (Scott Maslen) that the baby isn't his.
The matter comes to a head after Ronnie and Jack visit his brother Max in hospital and the troubled blonde is unable to cope with being in the same place where she gave birth months earlier, so she runs away, before blurting out part of her shocking secret when her husband follows her.
However, Samantha Womack, who plays Ronnie, revealed: "She blurts out that James isn't his son - but Jack doesn't believe her and thinks her depression is making her say it.
"He's really worried and insists on returning to Albert Square with her - but Ronnie drives off without him."
Ronnie is now determined to come clean about her actions and heads straight for the Queen Vic to speak with Kat (Jessie Wallace).
Samantha added to Inside Soap magazine: "All she wants to do now is the right thing. And, after telling Tommy she loves him like as her own, Ronnie walks into the Vic to bring an end to the torment and confusion she has caused."
