Amy Christina Margaret Mitchell (née Slater) played by Kamil Lipka-Kozanka and Natalia Lipka-Kozanka until 2010, and Amelie Conway from 2010 onwards, is the daughter of Roxy Mitchell (Rita Simons) and Jack Branning (Scott Maslen). She made her first appearance on 17 November 2008, the episode in which she is born.

For the first few weeks of her life, she is raised as the daughter of Roxy's husband Sean Slater (Robert Kazinsky) as he and Jack are unaware of Amy's true paternity. Amy is born two months premature and is put on a ventilator from birth. She is named after her presumed-dead cousin (now known as Danielle Jones (Lauren Crace), the daughter of Roxy's sister, Ronnie Mitchell (Samantha Womack). Roxy initially decides to raise Amy with her friend Christian Clarke (John Partridge), after Sean misses Amy's birth but changes her mind when she and Sean reconcile.

Jack asks Roxy for a paternity test, aware that Amy may be his daughter. It transpires that this is so on Christmas Day 2008 which leads to Sean abducting Amy. There is a fierce argument when Sean is found with Amy which leads to Sean leaving and Amy is returned to Roxy by Sean's sister Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) on New Year's Day. Jack then spends more time with Amy and Ronnie decides Amy should be Christened and Roxy agrees. Amy's godfather is Christian and her godmother is her step-grandmother Dot Branning (June Brown), although Ronnie is originally meant to be her godmother, but gets drunk and turns up late to the ceremony. Christian and his partner Syed Masood (Marc Elliot) look after Amy for a day and decide that they want a child. While Amy is being looked after by Ronnie, she draws a picture, which upsets Ronnie has Ronnie interprets it as including her son who died. Amy escapes from the house, which leads to everyone discovering Ronnie has been bailed from prison after swapping her dead baby James with Kat Moon's (Jessie Wallace) healthy son Tommy. Amy also escapes when Roxy's boyfriend Michael Moon (Steve John Shepherd) leaves the door open. Amy is almost hit by Carol Jackson's (Lindsey Coulson) car but is saved by Eddie Moon (David Essex). When Amy suffers a fall at home, Roxy thinks nothing of it. Roxy goes on a night out with friends, leaving Ben Mitchell (Joshua Pascoe) babysitting Amy. When he leaves Amy alone for a while to get a DVD from Jack's flat, Amy runs herself a bath, gets in and almost drowns. When Ben discovers her, Dr Yusef Khan (Ace Bhatti) is called and he revives her. Amy is taken to hospital in a critical condition. She recovers, but she is found to have a fracture from her previous fall, so a social worker awards temporary custody of Amy to Jack. Roxy later is allowed to see Amy, whilst a social worker evaluates Roxy's parenting skills. Jack refuses to allow Roxy to see Amy other than at arranged times. A solicitor tells Roxy to dig up as much dirt on Jack and his family as she can, but this does not work as a court grants full custody to Jack. When Roxy's cousin Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) has Jack's car crushed, Jack tells Roxy she cannot see Amy until it is replaced. Jack does not allow Roxy to give Amy her gift at Christmas, so Roxy shows Amy her puppet toy through the window, meaning Jack is forced to let Amy see Roxy. Amy starts scratching other children at nursery because of the tension between Roxy and Jack. Eventually, Roxy wins her custody case, though Jack reveals he dropped it because Roxy threatened to report him for fraud, as he forged her signature to get Amy a passport. When Roxy catches head lice, she blames Bianca Jackson's (Patsy Palmer) children, but she finds out she actually caught them from Amy.
