Mitzeee was most recently with Warren Fox (Jamie Lomas), before her actions led to his murder arrest and subsequent departure.
On playing the character, Shenton told Newsscoop: "I love playing Mitzeee, she's a complex soul, with a million faces.
"She can be ruthless and shrewd yet insecure and vulnerable. As an actress it's a blast to play. I wouldn't change a thing about her - well, maybe I'd like her to wear more clothes!"
Speaking about working with Lomas on scenes involving Mitzeee and Warren's relationship, she said: "Jamie's great, we had such a blast filming his final scenes.
"On some of the aggressive parts, we decided the best thing to do was not hold back & just go for it, which was a little scary at times."
When asked about the future for Mitzeee, she explained: "I'm not going to say too much, all I'm saying is I'm very excited at a potential new romance for Mitzeee."
Shenton recently said that she admires Mitzeee's "ruthless" personality.
