Opening up about her EastEnders role, Martha said at the time: "I have watched EastEnders since it began and I'm beyond excited to join such an iconic show and having a great time playing Sandy."
Sandy's previous alcohol problems led her to a fleeting relationship with nasty Nick Cotton (John Altman), in which she became pregnant with Dotty and originally kept her secret.
The character had previously been seen in 2010 when Dotty was a child but was then played by actress Caroline Pegg.
