Iconic ‘Allo ‘Allo! actress Vicki Michelle is set to make her mark on Albert Square soon and join EastEnders. The star will be taking on the role of Rocky Cotton’s wife, Jo, for two episodes next month.

Rocky (Brian Conley) is the son of bigamist Charlie Cotton, the husband of legendary Dot Branning and half brother of her delinquent children Nick and Andrew Cotton.

Michelle said about her short stint in the BBC soap: “I’m so excited to be in EastEnders and everyone has been so lovely.

“Jo Cotton is a great character and it is such a great story. I can’t wait for the audience to meet her.”

Chris Clenshaw, executive producer, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome the immensely talented Vicki to the EastEnders family, as she brings to life the character of Jo Cotton.

“Vicki is the perfect fit to take on the elusive character of Rocky’s wife that we know very little about.

“Brash, quick-witted, and extremely glamorous, Jo is akin to her long-lost husband, Rocky, and as you would expect she is immediately thrown into the heart of the drama when she arrives in Walford.”
