Actress and Celebrity Big Brother star Danniella Westbrook has taken to Instagram to say that she thinks her EastEnders character should be given a permanent return to Albert Square.


Dani’s set to appear as Sam Mitchell on-screen in the near future as she returns to Walford for the funeral of mum, Peggy.

Sam will be appearing for four episodes, but it seems that Dani wants a whole lot more.

She told her followers on the photo-sharing site: “It’s such a shame I won’t be going back to the show as I think people would of loved to see Sam as a mum and with a different take on the character… But I don’t write the show I just do what they tell me.

She added: “And they’ve done what they always do use Sam when she’s needed & then send her off in a black cab.

“I wish @bbceastenders would listen to the public more. But either way I’m grateful of the 4 episodes I got to film.”

Danniella spoke out back in March about her desire to return to the hit soap ful-time. She told Loose Women: “It’s a one-off at the moment, because our boss Dominic is leaving and we’ve got a new boss stepping in.

“Hopefully the new boss will take me on the mantle as a full-time character. I’d like to go back.”


What do you think? Would Sam be welcome back on the Square or should new boss, Sean O’Connor, focus on bringing in new character?
