Meghan Markle signs up to join EastEnders as Robbie Jackson’s wife in latest TV role


Albert Square has been a very dreary place since the death of little Dennis Rickman. The youngster drowned during the tragic boat crash on the River Thames in February.

His heartbroken mum Sharon Watts has been a lost soul floating silently around Bridge Street Market, Ben Mitchell is suffering from significant hearing loss and Whitney Dean is battling a murder charge after she stabbed Leo King to death.

The recent demise of Daniel Cook also saw the loss of a brilliant sense of humour, and even Bex Fowler has done a runner from all of the drama.

Latest EastEnders News

So what EastEnders really needs right now is the return of a cheery icon with an exciting new character in-tow to brighten the place up.

And now BBC bosses have confirmed Meghan Markle has joined the EastEnders cast as the new wife of Robbie Jackson.

Prince Harry and Meghan officially stepped down as senior members of the Royal Family earlier this week, and Meghan has already pursued a voice over role for a Disney production; so the soap will be her second major acting role.

EastEnders viewers last saw Robbie Jackson leave Walford around six months ago to return son Sami Jackson back to his mother Nita Mistry in India.

Robbie’s (Dean Gaffney) spectacular comeback has been widely anticipated and his shock entrance will see Meghan Markle play his stunning wife Elizabeth.

The newly married pair enjoyed a shotgun wedding after meeting in Canada where Robbie was on his latest travel expedition.

However, they are now ready to return to Robbie’s roots in the East End.

Jon Sen, Executive Producer, said: “We are so delighted to announce Meghan Markle as the newest resident in Albert Square.

“Her role as Elizabeth will bring some new glamour, sassiness and drama to the Square. She’ll be the apple of Robbie’s eye and turn heads amongst the male species of Walford causing quiet the stir between one happily married couple in particular.

“Meghan has started filming scenes in episodes due to be aired in the summer.”

We absolutely can’t wait.
