EASTENDERS viewers saw the moment Ronnie and Roxy Mitchell lost their lives in a dramatic New Year's Day episode of the BBC soap.
For the past few months, speculation has been rife about how the sisters would bow out of the show.
While the rumours about the sisters drowning turned out to be true, no one was prepared with how it would happen.
Despite a minor setback earlier on in the day when Roxy refused to be a part of Ronnie and Jack's wedding because she was scared of ruining it, the sisters managed to sort it out in the end and the day went on without a hitch.
However, tragedy struck when the sisters decided to take a dip in the hotel pool.
As Roxy jumped in first, Ronnie was going to jump in straight after but trouble with her wedding dress meant that she didn't.
After noticing that her sister wasn't saying anything, Ronnie turned around to see Roxy lying at the bottom of the pool.
