Former EastEnder To Return?

Hello and welcome to today’s edition of A Slice Of Soap. There’s still time to enter this week’s caption competition so get scribbling and make us all laugh.   What’s going on in soapland this week? Let’s find out…

Well, there’s news circulating that a former EastEnders star may be about to return. According to The Sun, Danniella Westbrook is rumoured to be in talks about a possible comeback. The 35-year-old actress, who played Sam Mitchell before Kim Medcalf took over the role, may be the latest star to pop back to the soap that made her famous in the first place. A source told the newspaper: "The chemistry with Sid Owen as Ricky was exciting stuff. If she returns it will be the talk of soapland for months. This would hark back to the Albert Square brat pack – Ricky, Bianca, Janine and Sam."

The character of Sam Mitchell was last seen in Albert Square in 2005 when she was falsely accused for murdering Den Watts. While on bail, the prospect of prison became too much to handle and Sam supposedly escaped to Brazil. Danniella Westbrook appeared on EastEnders between 1990 and 2000, but her time was marred by drug addiction. She quit the role in 1993, was then asked back in 1995 before producers axed her a year later due to the problems with her ongoing drug habit (it was affecting her work).

In 1999, she was asked to return for a third time, before being axed again in 2000. Kim Medcalf then took over the role between 2002 and 2005. One of the last times I can remember seeing Danniella Westbrook was in 2003’s I’m A Celebrity…, but she quit to return to her family. Well if Leslie Grantham’s Dirty Den can return to the soap after being dead, anyone can really – can’t they? I reckon that if the producers get desperate enough, we may yet see the return of our hero Gus Smith!

That’s it for me, I’m out of here. Join me on Friday for more soap news and gossip. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me.

    I really hope they don\’t get Daniella back in Eastenders as I hate that woman!!! She is a junkie who took drugs during all of her pregnancies, in \’real-life\’ ie if she wasn\’t famous, she\’d probably have had her kids taken into care! I don\’t think she deserves any fame or money cos she blew her chance repeatedly on eastenders before due to her drug habit. She doesn\’t deserve any more chances! Look at the state she made of her face cos she was so busy stuffing filth up her nose she snorted her septum away. It makes me sick to think she may get back on tv and be treated like a \’celebrity\’ again!! She\’s not even a good actress! Look at the state of her in that picture, all photos now she has to stick her head down so you can\’t see the mess of her nose. She had reconstructive surgery but it\’s not the same as having your original nose! Also her fake boobs look disgusting. She is such a terrible role model for not only her own kids, but the british public. Do not let her back on Eastenders!! She would probably blow her wages on drugs anyway, once a junkie, always a junkie! She makes my skin crawl. The world would be a better place without parasites like her on it.

    God you are so cruel & unforgiving-who are you to be so judgemental?For your info-she has come through her cocaine addiction & is no longer a "junkie".I hope they bring her back-what with Bianca,Ricky & the wonderful Janine back-it would be great to have another original eastender back in the square!
