'EastEnders' Spoiler: Danniella Westbrook WILL Return As Sam Mitchell For Peggy Mitchell Farewell Scenes

Confirmed! Danniella WILL Return To 'EastEnders'

Danniella Westbrook is set to reprise her role as Sam Mitchell in ‘EastEnders’, it has been confirmed.


After much speculation, the actress has revealed that she’ll be back in the the Square this spring, for the family reunion that will take place when Ross Kemp and Barbara Windsor both return as Grant and Peggy Mitchell.

Danniella's profile rose again when she appeared on the most recent series of 'Celebrity Big Brother'

“Danniella is the final piece of the Mitchell jigsaw puzzle, so it will be great for viewers to see Phil, Grant and Sam all back on screen.

“Sam will only be back for a few episodes, but these scenes are bound to go down in the soap’s history.”

While little has been said about the hotly-anticipated episodes, viewers do know that they’ll need the tissues ready, as we prepare to say goodbye to soap legend Peggy for good.

The Mitchells aren’t the only familiar faces back in Walford this year though, and Jack Branning recently made a surprise return, while his brother Max, played by Jake Wood, will be returning to our screens in late 2016.
