'Eastenders' Rose Cotton to leave the show later this year?

A newspaper report has today claimed that Eastenders character Rose Cotton is set to leave the BBC1 soap later this year.

According to an interview in The Sun with Rose's on-screen sister June Brown who stars as Walford legend Dot Cotton, Polly Perkins who plays the character has already left the show.

Speaking to Matt Bendoris, June said: ''Then Polly Perkins came into it to play my sister Rose. Now she’s away too. So I have no idea if I will go back. I really don’t know. No one is indispensable.”
