Top 10 EastEnders Characters of All Time

Notch up your favorite EastEnders characters who were ever in the show.

The Top Ten

1 Phil Mitchell
2 Ronnie Mitchell Ronnie Mitchell Veronica Elizabeth "Ronnie" Branning is a fictional character from the BBC soap opera, EastEnders, played by Samantha Womack.

Great actress and needed a happy ending

The fact that Joey is above some of the best is dispicable.

3 Den Watts

The true Eastender Icon who managed to put Phil in his place without breaking sweat! Even death could not stop him returning to wreck more havoc. The "weak" bosse's who fired him in 2005 really messed up bad - his continuing feuds with the fat "right said fred" look-a-likes would have been legendary - shame!

4 Peggy Mitchell
5 Grant Mitchell

Phil and Sharon are right up there but their character was never better than when interacting Grant. Grant always brings so much life and excitement in every episode he is in!

6 Lauren Branning


Shes cute

7 Pat Evans

Pat is literally my all time favourite character followed closely by den watts I think she is brilliant she is different from when she started but not many characters can change their character and pull it off, she also has amazing earrings

8 Stacey Slater

She is the best and an amazing and inspiring actor. I love her bipolar storyline that taught me that bipolar can get that bad. Her family is nice and she drew my eyes to EastEnders ever since she came to EastEnders way back in 2004

By a mile the best actress in the show

Stacey is the best character in eastenders. due to her adapted role to bipolar disorder or to her many storylines she concorred she should be proud

9 Roxy Mitchell
10 Ian Beale

The Contenders

11 Tanya Branning

I am voting because I really love this actor and she is such a nice lady and she has been my favorite actor since I started watching this soap

She is a good character but not worthy enough to be in top ten let alone too five

12 Sharon Rickman
13 Joey Branning

Pathetic,waste of space character doesn't deserve to be on any list

14 Anthony Moon
15 Peter Beale
16 Kat Slater

In my opinion the 2000's would be nothing without the slaters and the slater's would be nothing without Kat

17 Zoe Slater
18 Sharon Watts
19 Pauline Fowler
20 Janine Butcher

Best baddie on ee

Their has been a lot of bitches in eastenders but by far she is my favourite I love her relationship with pat and her family. I also love Charlie brooks is amazing and I loved her in the jungle

21 Alfie Moon

How can you not love him he's cheeky, funny and a bit an idiot but in a nice way he also completes kat and do you really think it's a coincidence that kat goes on about her man in the moon and Alfie's name I'd Alfie MOON

22 Michael Moon
23 Dennis Rickman

He is just gorgeous so sad they decided to kill him off would of been great to see him back with Sharon and maybe keep his son Denny under control

I must have forgotten to rank him when I originally made this. He's my 2nd or 3rd favourite EastEnders character. He was only in it for two years so had a shirt run but it truly was an entertaining two years, every scene he was in was good. Superb and complex character. - JamesNicholls

Good character in EastEnders, back when it was watchable!

Yeah he was great
