Danniella Westbrook returns to soap

Danniella Westbrook is returning to EastEnders to play feisty Sam Mitchell.

The character, who sent to prison earlier this year for her role in Dirty Den Watts' death, makes her comeback in the summer.

Show bosses said the bubbly jailbird will be harbouring "a lot of grudges and a big secret" on her return.

Executive producer Bryan Kirkwood explained: "When Sam Mitchell is in Albert Square trouble is never far behind. We last saw her heading for a stretch in prison and estranged by her family."

He went on: "When she returns on her release it's with a lot of grudges and a big secret. Danniella brings a lot of fun and mischief to the role of Sam and I'm looking forward to having her back where she belongs."

Actress Danniella first appeared in EastEnders in 1990, and has had several stints in the show.

After her most recent exit, she took part in Dancing On Ice, where she finished third.
