Womack agent denies 'Enders plot rows
Thursday, January 6 2011, 15:13 GMT
By Daniel Kilkelly, Soaps Editor


Samantha Womack's agent has dismissed suggestions that the actress's decision to leave EastEnders was influenced by her current baby swap storyline.

Earlier today, a newspaper reported that the star had resigned in protest last November upon receiving the initial script for the plot, which has seen her character Ronnie Branning switch her dead son with Kat Moon's (Jessie Wallace) newborn baby.

However, Womack's representative Michael Wiggs has insisted that that the current speculation surrounding her decision is untrue.

In a statement, Wiggs explained: "There's no truth whatsoever in any suggestion that Sam is 'quitting' EastEnders over the current storyline. Sam's contract comes to a natural end later this year and she will be taking a break from the show - this has been agreed with the producers for several months.


"Sam has had an incredibly happy and fulfilling time on EastEnders over the last few years. She has huge respect for the show, writers and producers and has thoroughly enjoyed playing such a complex role that has been involved in so many tough and challenging storylines."

John Yorke, Controller of BBC Drama, added: "Sam is a much loved member of the cast, who has consistently given truthful and brilliant performances as Ronnie Branning. When she leaves at the end of this storyline, she'll be much missed - and the door will be open for her return."

Meanwhile, an EastEnders spokesperson said: "The current storyline allows an exit for Ronnie Branning. Samantha Womack has been a major part of the show's success in recent years and she will continue to work with us until her departure later this year."

Sadly I doubt this will change the minds of those who have put all this together as some huge moral atrocity forced onto her by the evil Bryan Kirkwood. I doubt she would do anything that she did not feel comfortable with, and she probably wouldn't have gone along with this statement being released either - she seems to me like someone who is more than capable of standing up for themselves.

The good thing is that the show is filled with great actors/characters so it doesn't bother me as much.

I really hate this stupid protest! I'm back in August which for me means being a couple of WEEKS behind! I'm determined to catch up! Does anyone have any old material about the reaction to Sue and Ali's baby dying in 1985? I know there was no baby switch but the people squawking about this don't seem to realize this would be in character for a woman who's lost a baby, the daughter she thought was dead, that daughter's baby( Danielle's abortion) and has been a survivor of childhood incest/ rape! I think Ronnie has suffered enough and "resting" her is a good idea!

Plus, her slut sister and cousin having her husband's baby when she couldn't and I think she had a miscarriage too.

Perhaps they can put the focus on Denise now, since Sam/Ronnie is departing. I missed the whole "Denise dies" story, so I really want to see Diane Parish get some meaty material.

You know, they could still potentially continue the baby switch plot with Womack out of the picture. Ronnie could lose her marbles, get sectioned, thus leaving Jack all alone to raise James. Perhaps have another woman enter the picture, and eventually have a bitter Ronnie return and spill the beans that James is really Tommy.
