Development[ edit ] Creation and characterisation[ edit ] In AprilThe Sun reported that EastEnders would be introducing two glamorous new characters over the summer, sisters Ronnie and Roxy Mitchell. The siblings were created as an extension of the soap's existing Mitchell family, the nieces of matriarch Peggy's late husband Eric.
They were the first major signings made by executive producer Diederick Santerwho told the Daily Mirror that the sisters were intended to bring "sexy, dramatic excitement" to the show. He stated, "They may be glamorous young women, but these girls are Mitchells and have all the strength of character and unique moral code the name implies. In the documentary "The Secret Mitchell", he cited the actress' beauty, toughness and fragility as facets suitable for the character.
Ronnie is in her thirties,  and the elder of the two sisters. She commented that the sisters are loyal to each other to the point that Ronnie would kill for Roxy,  and attributed her "darker side" to her troubled childhood. She explained that she has been taught to hide her feelings and to be a survivor, which she accomplishes by controlling others, concluding that Ronnie is defined by her childhood trauma. Womack has noted that it is no coincidence that the siblings are named Ronnie and Roxy.
