The original Mitchell sister to return

Danniella Westbrook is set to make a dramatic return to Walford as Sam Mitchell, almost 20 years after she first set foot in the Square.

Although Danniella hasn't appeared in EastEnders since 2000, we last saw her character, Sam Mitchell, played by Kim Medcalf, in 2005. A suspect in Dirty Den's murder, Sam ran off to Brazil to stay with her older brother Grant.

What could possibly have convinced Sam to leave the sun and safety of Brazil when she faces possible arrest back in the UK?

How will the rest of the Mitchell clan react to her return, as well as ex-husband Ricky Butcher? Could the reappearance of Sam threaten his relationship with Bianca?
I’m really happy to be coming back, it feels just like coming home," says Daniella. "I’m really looking forward to working with Barbara, Steve, Sid and Patsy and I’m over the moon to be working with the new boss Diederick Santer. I can’t wait to get the scripts to see what Sam Mitchell has been up to since she was last in the Square.”

EastEnders Executive Producer Diederick Santer added: “With all the turmoil facing the Mitchells this year, it feels like a great time to bring back Sam, the original Mitchell sister. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Kim Medcalf for her great work playing Sam Mitchell for three years and welcome Danniella back to pick up the baton once again.”
