EastEnders star Rita Simons visits Sandridge play centre

SANDRIDGE: EastEnders star Rita Simons caused a stir when she visited an indoor play centre last weekend.

The 31 year old, who plays feisty Roxy Mitchell in the long-running BBC soap, brought her twin girls to DJ’s Jungle Adventure, on St Albans Road, for a birthday party.

DJ’s owner and big EastEnders fan, Helen Whittington (pictured above left with Rita), said: “As to be expected there was the usual buzz at DJ’s that day, but Rita seemed comfortable and was happy to oblige with a photo and autograph.”
