Since Cindy Beale’s resurrection a few months ago, Cindy Junior has hardly been mentioned on EastEnders. Where is she now, and will she be back on the BBC soap opera?
Cindy Junior, Michelle Collins’ daughter of Cindy Beale, has not been in the public eye since her mother’s unexpected return to EastEnders. Although Cindy Beale was under witness protection in Spain, where she met George Knight and gave birth to her two daughters, Anna and Gina, she was believed to be dead. But she left them when she felt safe enough to be unprotected.
The Knight family, oblivious to ‘Rose’s’ past, found themselves in Walford, much to their surprise. They appeared to be living contentedly together now, which surprised Cindy when she saw them there. Although Cindy has made her way back to Gina, Anna, and Peter Beale, Cindy Junior hasn’t been on the BBC show since 2015 and hasn’t received much attention.
So where is Mimi Keene’s character Cindy Junior these days? She was born during Cindy’s incarceration for her plot to kill Ian Beale, her former partner. Cindy Jr. moved in with her grandmother Bev and aunt Gina when everyone assumed Cindy had passed away.
It’s unknown where Cindy Junior is right now and whether or not she is aware that her mother is still alive. According to Peter, Cindy Junior broke up with her boyfriend Liam amicably in September and then made the decision to travel.
Nick Holland, the father of Cindy Junior, broke off all contact with Cindy Williams’ mother upon learning that she had attempted to kill her former husband Ian Beale. Peter and Lucy, Cindy Jr.’s half-siblings, are also fathered by Ian.
Dominic Taylor’s character Nick was only present in the Square from 1997 to 1998. In Italy, Cindy was hiding when they first met. They are thought to have met since then, even though Nick hasn’t gone back to see his daughter.
There are currently no plans for Cindy Junior to make a comeback to the BBC soap opera. Ella Wortley in 1998 and 1999, Cyndey Parker the following year, Eva Sayer in 2007, and most recently Mimi Keene in 2013 and 2015 are the four actresses who have portrayed her.
In her final moments, she was seen moving from Walford to Germany to be with her partner Liam. Their current whereabouts and activities are unknown, but they shared a home with Liam’s father, Ricky Butcher.
Mimi Keene is also well-known for her roles as Nathalie in the movie After Everything and Ruby Matthews in the Netflix comedy-drama series S*x Education.
