"She’s a normal girl with everyday concerns, like what’s the state of her love life. What’s even cooler is, she can leap from building to building if she needs to."
Why we love Michelle Ryan
How sad were we when Michelle Ryan left Eastenders in 2005, sending statuesque market-trader hottie Zoe Slater off on a never-to-return trip to Ibiza? Well, put it this way: we smashed our telly to pieces in a fit of grief, then pulled ourselves together, leapt in our car and high-tailed it off to the airport in a last-ditch attempt to get Zoe to change her mind and stay in Albert Square. Alas, when we arrived at Gatwick, she was nowhere to be seen. She must’ve flown from Heathrow. Or possibly Stansted.
Anyway, you can imagine how happy we were to find Zoe – sorry, Michelle – back on our screens in the likes of Merlin, Doctor Who and Cockneys Vs. Zombies. Don’t ever go AWOL again, young lady, or we’ll send Big Mo to come and hunt you down.
