Current Celebrity Big Brother housemate and former EastEnders star Danniella Westbrook has revealed she would love ‘nothing more’ than a return to Albert Square.

Westbrook played Sam Mitchell on and off for just under 10 years, appearing in a total of 27o episodes – before making her final appearance in September 2010.

Writing on her official Twitter account, the actress wrote: “I would love nothing more than to return to @bbceastenders, it was my home and family 4 many years and i miss it terribly 💔

The tweet was pre-written before Westbrook entered the Big Brother house and has now been posted by her representatives.


The tweet comes after the announcement Danniella’s on-screen mum would be killed off, with her on-screen brother Grant set to return for the emotional scenes.

An EastEnders spokesperson told Digital Spy: “Peggy’s final episodes are still being finalised, so it is too early to say if any other characters from the Mitchell family will be returning. We have definitely not ruled out anyone at this stage.”
