EastEnders' Sam Womack quits the UK for new life in Spain with boyfriend Oli after breast cancer battle | The Sun

EASTENDERS star Sam Womack is quitting the UK and leaving for Spain – telling fans she's heading for the mountains of Valencia.

It comes after the actress, known to millions for playing Ronnie Mitchell on EastEnders, revealed back in August she had been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Sam, 50, last night posed with her Coronation Street actor boyfriend Oliver Farnworth, 50, and their bulging removal van after packing up all their belongings for their new life abroad.

The star captioned her post: "The truck is PACKED!

"Valencia mountains here we come……..Home 2 Home Spain- Thank you sooooooo much. You were so incredible."

As well as thanking their removal company, Sam paid tribute to her other half.

Sam underwent her lumpectomy last year to remove the cancer – but shockingly told how she couldn't feel the lump.

The actress spoke about her health and recovery in an interview on This Morning.

Appearing on This Morning, Samantha gave Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield a health update.

She said: “I’m really good. I was diagnosed three, four months ago with breast cancer.”

The star explained that she didn’t have a lump and just randomly tested.

“It was really incredible because I didn’t find a lump, I didn’t feel unwell.

 “There had been a lot of illness around our friends and family and I just thought I’d get a random check and I had an ultrasound, and it showed a little shadow – at that point it could be anything, a cyst… then I had further investigations and then that diagnosis.

“I was lucky, it was less than two centimetres. I had a lumpectomy, which is just a piece of tissue removed and five lymph nodes. 

“The mad thing about cancer, when you have it, you understand there are so many different roads, different diagnoses, it is a terrifying world. It’s terrifying at the beginning but if there was ever a time to have it, there are so many new treatments now that are changing the face of cancer, it’s amazing.”

Despite her surgeon advising her not to get back to work to soon, Samantha was soon back to nine show weeks.

She said: "I think its my Nordic, Viking genes that helped get me back in quite soon after the surgery.”

Sam shares two children, Lili-Rose, 18, and Benjamin, 22, with her ex-husband, Emmerdale star Mark Womack.
