James explained: ''I like to watch the show and see what they're doing with her character. Purely because Rita is one of my best friends."

However, the 34-year-old admitted that he has a tendency of dipping in and out of the show.

''I find that EastEnders is one of those shows that I can't watch for three months," he added. "Then suddenly I'll catch a single episode and get right back into it again.''

Simons's alter ego Roxy has recently fallen for Queen Vic landlord Alfie Moon in a storyline which coincides with Jessie Wallace's return to Walford as Kat Slater.
