Ronnie originally tried to break the pair of them up after learning that Sean was a drug dealer – with it later emerging that Roxy was a former cocaine addict.
The pair were married in August 2008 after Roxy revealed that she was pregnant and Sean offered to support her – with her initially turning down his offer and returning to Ibiza where she had previously lived with Ronnie.
However Roxy returned after Sean discovered she was living in Weymouth with her dad Archie Mitchell (Larry Lamb) – and he and Ronnie persuaded her to return.
So is Amy Sean Slater’s daughter or Jack Branning’s?
Here comes the twist. Amy is actually Jack Branning’s daughter, from a drunken one-night stand Roxy had with Jack.
She told Sean he was the father, and the pair moved in together and tied the knot before Amy was born, later planning to move away to Dagenham together.
However Sean learned the truth about who Amy’s father was on Christmas Day that year – and despite attempting to then kidnap Amy pretended to forgive Roxy and carried on with plans for them to move away.
However it later turned out that he intended to kill all of them, driving himself, Roxy and Amy to a freezing lake – and nearly succeeded when Roxy rescued Amy but fell through the ice with Sean.
In the wake of it all, Sean escaped from the frozen depths, with only Roxy seeing him as he clambered out of the lake and walked away.
Speaking exclusively to metro.co.uk Rob Kazinsky revealed how important Amy still was to his character, saying: ‘You still attach – Amy was his child for a minute.
‘And he has to see Jack,’ he added. The great thing about Jack is that of all of the people in the Square apart from Roxy – the only one who understands him is Jack.
‘They both love Amy and they both lost something very important on the same day. There is an initial fear of Sean being here, the truth is that this is a man who loves Amy too.’
EastEnders airs weeknights on Mondays and Fridays at 8pm and on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7.30pm.
