Who is Gina's mother in Eastenders?

Gina's mother in the BBC's longest running soap is Cindy Beale, but Gina, her siblings and her father George knew Cindy by her alias, Rose Knight — Cindy used this identity because she was under witness protection for being a police informer after sharing a prison pen with a dangerous cell mate.

Cindy left the Knight family in 2014 without saying anything or contacting them for years to come, which led to George developing a drinking problem, leaving Gina having to care for her sister Anna.

The disappearance of his wife also led George to stop eating, and so Gina and Anna also had to force their father to eat.

Strong-willed Gina grew to resent her mother following her disappearance and vowed to have nothing to do with her.

Are Gina and Anna Twins in Eastenders?

No, Gina and Anna are not twins.

Although they are around the same age, Gina was somewhat of a motherly figure to Anna after the disappearance of their mum.

Molly Rainford, who plays Anna in the show, told Digital Spy: "Gina, for a long time, has stepped into that maternal role even though she's not that much older than Anna.

"She's always felt that burden of her mum leaving, more than Anna realises, so Gina's doing this because she wants to protect Anna.

"I think Anna appreciates that but I don't think she feels it's fair as she wants to know more about her mum. I think that's the thing that overrides it and persuades her to reach out to the investigator."
