During the last nights episode (Tuesday, July 9) eagle-eyed fans noticed that Jack Brannings (Scott Maslen) daughter had been recast ahead of her dramatic storyline this week.
Amy, who was originally played by Abbie Burke, is now stared by Ellie Dadd, and fans couldnt help but notice how much she looked like her late mother, Roxy.
As a result of her sister''s death in 2017, Roxy died alongside Ronnie Mitchell (Samantha Womack) on her wedding day.
Last night, the teen troublemaker sparked a Roxy-inspired mischief in the Square after developing a crush on Howie Danes (Delroy Atkinson) son, Denzel (Jaden Ladega), after being introduced by Kim Fox (Tameka Empson).
Amy, Denzel, Lily Slater (Lillia Turner) and Tommy Moon (Sonny Kendall) bought some hamburgers from a Walford East delivery truck, but Denzel met Ravi Gulatis'' (Aaron Thiara) son, Davinder, who is now Nugget.
Amy, Denzel, and Nugget headed to Kims house, where Amy was in a pub after the couple went up on her and made disgruntled comments.
The pair slashed Amy as she was out, and the teen was slammed for earlier choking Jack for choking her for being inappropriate.
Amy''s first major plotline has seen her take center stage, whereas before she was often seen in the background of other Branning family dramas.
Amy, who has been played by Amelie Conway for the past year, is the third actress to play Amy, who had previously been promoted to Abbie in 2014.
Fans enjoyed social media to applaud the soaps'' casting choice and saw Roxy''s similarity, with one admitting that she even has her iconic mums scowl...
