There have been many characters who have come and gone from EastEnders over the years.
While some have been major characters, others only had a few lines.
You can probably guess which characters fall under these categories, but there are a couple you may not have noticed.
Do the characters Ricky Mitchell and Pearl Fox ring any bells? (you’re probably having that ‘oh yeah’ moment).
The pair have not been in a single episode of the soap at all since this year began according to a character appearance count published in a forum by Digital Spy.
Tameka Empson who plays Kimberley Fox and whose on-screen daughter is Pearl returned to the soap from maternity leave late last year in 2020.
However, it appears that Pearl herself is no-where to be seen.
Kim is now in a storyline that will see her desperately look for her missing husband who vanished from Walford in an unexplained manner according to spoilers.
