Veronica Elizabeth “Ronnie” Mitchell (also Branning), is a fictional character from the BBC soap opera EastEnders, played by Samantha Womack. She and her sister Roxy (played by Rita Simons) were introduced by executive producer Diederick Santer in July 2007. Ronnie is the “ice” to Roxy’s “fire”. As an extension to the already established Mitchell family, Ronnie quickly became a prominent character, taking over the nightclub. Not long after that, she formed a relationship with her business partner, Jack Branning (Scott Maslen). Michael Moon (Steve John Shepherd) and Sharon Rickman (Letitia Dean) describe her as a psychopath. Womack made her last appearance on 7 July 2011. In 2013 it was announced Womack had reprised the role and Ronnie returned to screens on 9 September.
