Samantha Womack has revealed that she was offered several sociopathic roles after leaving EastEnders.

During her four-year stint on the Albert Square soap, Womack's character Ronnie Mitchell was revealed to be a victim of domestic abuse from evil dad Archie and became involved in a controversial baby swap storyline.

The 39-year-old told OK magazine: "All the jobs were psychopaths, or psychologically-challenged people.

"I wasn't remotely tempted to go down that road. I'm more chilled out now, and ready to go wherever the work leads me."

Womack is currently starring alongside fellow ex-EastEnders actor Alex Ferns (Trevor Morgan) in award-winning musical South Pacific.
