Who is Thomas Cotton and why does he pretend to be Sonia’s father?

In the EastEnders tonight (Tuesday, September 21), a massive twist revealed that Rocky’s real name is Thomas Cotton.

Terry Cant, nicknamed Rocky, appeared in Walford earlier this year to look for his “daughter” Sonia.

However, not everything seems to be what it seems …

In the scenes that aired tonight, Sonia suggested investing in Rocky’s warehouse development idea.

Soon Sonia’s date from the other night that Rocky caught up with another woman turned up to apologize, but she turned him down.

Rocky later closed Ethan’s car but was caught by two police officers. He was taken to the police station and Dotty looked visibly annoyed.

However, it was later revealed why Dotty was upset … Rocky is actually related to her!

EastEnders Spoiler: Who Is Thomas Cotton?

At the station, the police asked Rocky’s name and it wasn’t Terry Cant. He told the officers his name was Thomas Cotton.

When he was released, Dotty waited and scolded him for nearly ruining her plan.

When Rocky stated that he hated seeing Sonia with someone like Ethan, Dotty was upset that he wasn’t Sonia’s father but her uncle and that he should put Dotty first.

She makes it clear that they have to keep an eye on the price – get Sonia’s inheritance money, or both of them have nothing.

Why is Thomas from Sonia’s father doing this?

Actor Brian Conley, who plays Thomas aka Rocky, explained why Thomas pretends to be Sonia’s father.

He revealed, “He pretends to be Sonia’s father because he was brought in by Dotty, who gave him the full backstory to lock up Sonia, who is her father, in order to get her money off Dot . “

He pretends to be Sonia’s father because Dotty fetched him.

“Dot gave the house to Dotty, and Sonia feels that Dotty is not old enough to take responsibility for owning this house.

“So they convinced her – yes, this is her father and enough for her to have the confidence to listen to what he says.

“However, he feels more and more that this is his world now and he doesn’t want to give it up.

“He went in with his bravery and thought, yes I can handle this, let’s get all the money. But as the weeks and months go by, it becomes very clear to him now that this is his home, this is his family.

“It’s very well written, I’m very happy that people are seeing it.”

Brian also confirmed that Rocky is related to Dotty’s villain father, Nick Cotton.
