Special footage on Snapchat shows a different outcome to last night’s (1 January) dramatic episode.

What DID air: Ronnie (Samantha Womack) and Jack Branning’s (Scott Maslen) wedding venue played host to a water-related demise for the Mitchell sisters. A tragic accident unfolded after the inebriated pair found themselves by the hotel’s deserted pool after-hours.

Roxy (Rita Simons) failed to resurface after diving into the water while Ronnie’s attempts to rescue her sister proved futile thanks to her wedding dress getting in the way, the sodden lacy gown eventually causing her own death. 

Ronnie and Roxy submerged in the broadcast ending

What COULD have aired: Ronnie appears to get a stay of execution in the different outcome released by the beeb as she finds her lifeless sister slumped over a pool table likely from a drug overdose.

EastEnders airs Monday and Friday at 8.00pm and Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC One.
