Sugar’s Niece Joins Enders

Published on May 26, 2007 with No Comments

Rita SimonsThe niece of loudmouth electronics tycoon Sir Alan Sugar – currently firing people in the latest series of The Apprentice – is set to star as a feisty relative of the Mitchell family in long-running soap EastEnders.

Rita Simons – whose previous claim to fame was starring in soccer soap Dream Team (which also featured fellow EastEnder Robert Kazinsky), will join the cast as Roxy Mitchell later this summer.

The 29-year-old – who was once romantically linked to Robbie Williams – said: “I’ve always watched EastEnders and it’s been my dream to become part of the Mitchell family.”
