'EastEnders' newcomer Rebecca Scroggs says the romance between Tina Carter and Tosh is "real"
EastEnders' Tosh and Tina Carter have a "real love".
Tina's rekindled relationship with the firefighter - played by Rebecca Scroggs - has caused concern among her family members, as Tosh has been abusive to her in the past, but Rebecca insists their romance is the real deal.
She told Inside Soap magazine: "The love that Tosh and Tina share is very real. Their relationship is stormy and there's been a suggestion of violence in the past.
"But there's something about Tina that Tosh is really drawn to. It's Tina's family that have put Tosh out, and that's where the pressure in their relationship lies."
The Walford newcomer has already shared scenes with Linda Henry, who plays Tina's fiery sister Shirley Carter, but Rebecca says she wasn't worried about working with the popular actress.
She explained: "The first time we met Tosh, she publicly humiliated Shirley by hosing her down at the fire station.
"Everyone I knew who'd worked with Linda had told me how lovely she was, so I wasn't nervous about meeting her.
"My first scene was where Shirley and Tosh have their showdown at the fire station, and Linda really looked after me - so I felt really bad about having to soak her!"
