‘EastEnders’ Spoilers: Sam Mitchell To Abandon Son Richard And Leave Him With Jack Branning?

The youngest Mitchell sibling hasn't taken to being a mother.

Sam Mitchell’s return to ‘EastEnders’ may only be brief, but it set looks to have long-lasting consequences for Jack Branning.

Danniella Westbrook is reprising her role as the youngest Mitchell sibling, as the Walford family bid an emotional goodbye to their mother Peggy, in scenes to air on the BBC One soap next week.

But it soon emerges that Sam is dealing with her own problems, as she contemplates abandoning her son, Richard, with his father Jack (Scott Maslen).

It becomes apparent Sam is hiding something from her family, as they become increasingly worried about her drunken behaviour.

When Phil (Steve McFadden) confronts her, she angrily storms out, and it isn’t long before Roxy (Rita Simons) spots her with her luggage.

Jack is finding it hard having his son on the Square

Worried about her cousin, she encourages Sam to open up, but is shocked when she reveals she is struggling with motherhood and plans to leave Richard behind in Walford.

‘EastEnders’ airs these scenes on Friday (8 July) at 8pm on BBC One.
