Tina Carter’s ex-girlfriend is due to turn up in Albert Square and cause some trouble, it has been revealed.

Rebecca Scroggs has been cast in EastEnders as firefighter Fiona ‘Tosh’ Mackintosh in the BBC soap.

Tosh is described as a “troublesome ex” who arrives in Walford to try and get back together with Tina (Luisa Bradshaw-White).

She is described as strong, feisty and bright, and is set to clash with Tina’s sister Shirley Carter (Linda Henry).

Rebecca said: “I’m very excited to be joining EastEnders in my first major television role. I grew up watching the show and it feels amazing to actually be a part of it now!

“I’m really going to enjoy working with the Carter family, they’ve brought such great energy to the Square.”

Rebecca – who has previously appeared in Death In Paradise – will appear on screen later this month.
