EastEnders star says Theo Silverston looks away


Rita Simons has revealed husband Theo Silverston doesn’t approve of her locking lips with other men on EastEnders.

The actress, who plays Roxy Mitchell, says the hairdresser will avoid tuning in so he doesn’t have to see her steamy scenes.

‘He absolutely hates it,’ Rita, 33, tells Now

‘In fact, he turns away and goes: “La la la la la!” I always try to make him watch, but he won’t even discuss it.

‘He’d also like to think I was a virgin until we met!’

Rita says her character isn’t as saucy as she’s made out to be.

‘The biggest misconception about Roxy is that she’s a slag,’ she says.

Rita and Theo got married in August 2006. They are parents to four-year-old twins Jaimee and Maiya.
