Danniella Westbrook 'To Return To Hollyoaks': Fresh Start For Former 'EastEnders' Actress?

Danniella Westbrook is to return to ‘Hollyoaks’, it has been claimed.

Back in 2013, Danniella played Trudy Ryan in the Channel 4 soap for a storyline that ran over a few months, ending in her character being arrested for human trafficking.

After two years away, The Sun have now reported that she is to reprise her role, with a source saying: “It’s a huge thing for Danniella.

“Now she’s going to be earning a good wage back on TV like the old days. Hopefully, this will really help her turn a corner.”

Although she hasn’t confirmed the rumours yet, she did tease some exciting news on her Twitter page on Thursday, claiming a “big announcement” was on the way.

We’re pleased to see things have taken a positive turn for Danniella, who it’s fair to say hasn’t exactly had the easiest year.

In August last year, she returned to rehab in America, after 13 years of sobriety, and months later admitted on Twitter that she had been made homeless and was living in sheltered housing, breaking the news herself to stop someone selling the information to a celebrity magazine.

Before landing the role in ‘Hollyoaks’, Danniella was best known for playing Sam Mitchell for 10 years in ‘EastEnders’.
