Returning Eastenders star Samantha Womack has said that she is set to film her first scenes next month.

Womack used Twitter to tell her fans of her plans saying "Lots of people asking when I go back to EE. I start filming in mid-July."

She is set to reprise her role as the troubled Ronnie Mitchell who has been in jail on the soap for the abduction of Kat’s son, Tommy, after the cot-death of her own child. She is returning to the show for six months.

Digital Spy reports that the scenes are set to air on television in September.

Speaking about her return when it was announced she said "I am thrilled to be returning to the role of Ronnie for the next six months.

"Ronnie is coming out of prison and her reappearance in the Square is going to create havoc. I can't wait to be a Mitchell once again!"
