Soap bosses have recently confirmed that EastEnders legend Rita Simons is joining Hollyoaks but are yet to reveal who she will be playing.

This has led fans to believe that the actress could be about to take over Sarah Jayne as Mandy.

Taking to social media, One person wrote: "I dunno why its such a secret. With it being a secret I'm leaning more towards a Mandy Richardson recast. If not then again a bit strange."

Another penned: "I'm surprised it hasn't leaked yet on who Rita is going to be playing. I really thought we'd have heard something by now."

"I definitely think this is going to be a Mandy recast too," said a third fan.

Rita, who played Roxy Mitchell in EastEnders, confirmed she's joining rival soap Hollyoaks earlier this year

Taking to X, formally known as Twitter, Rita told fans: "Well! The news is out! So excited to be joining the fabulous cast of @Hollyoaks later this year!

"Can't tell you who I'm playing but I can tell you she's gonna be trouble! Massive shout to my gorgeous agents @MelanieBlakeUK @NGMManagement @ABA_Agent #MyGirls."

Rita will make her debut this autumn when she begins filming and it's set to be an explosive debut.
