Leave it to one of the weirdest and most iconic families in modern pop culture to unite (ahem) one of the weirdest and most iconic families in modern pop culture.

Yes, thanks to the Addams family, EastEnders fans have now got that Roxy and Ronnie Mitchell reunion they've been waiting for since producers killed off the sisters in a grisly swimming pool accident over the new year.

Actors Rita Simons and Samantha Womack reunited for a showing of the new Addams Family musical last night, which Womack is currently starring in.

Taking to social media this morning (August 12), Rita - who will next appear as Paulette in the touring version of Legally Blonde at the end of this year - shared an adorable snap of the pair.

You guys!

"Having a sleepover with my Ronald," she wrote. "Just seen Addams Family, you all frickin rocked!"

Despite previously expressing her devastation at leaving EastEnders in a huge cast shake-up, Womack reached out to producer Sean O'Connor who quit the soap last month following accusations of bullying on set.

"My heart goes out to [Sean] and everyone struggling in the show," she told The Mirror.

"I'm always wary of making one single person a scapegoat. Ideas are brought to him too. It's easy to pin the blame on one person, I don't think it's helpful."

Ahh. Exactly what Ronnie would say, we reckon.

EastEnders airs weekdays on BBC One.
