Sam Mitchell’s Dramatic Enders 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.

Are you ready for Danniella Westbrook’s dramatic EastEnders return this Friday? It’s been nearly 20 years since she first stepped into Albert Square as Sam Mitchell in 1990. Although Danniella hasn’t appeared in EastEnders since 2000, her character was last seen on screen in 2005 (played by Kim Medcalf) before she bolted off to Brazil, a suspect in Dirty Den’s murder.

The big questions are, what’s made Sam return? What will everyone make of her reappearance? How will she react when she sees Bianca’s back too? With regard to her return, Danniella said: "I’m really happy to be coming back, it feels just like coming home. I’m really looking forward to working with Barbara, Steve, Sid and Patsy and I’m over the moon to be working with the new boss Diederick Santer. I can’t wait to get the scripts to see what Sam Mitchell has been up to since she was last in the Square."

The BBC has released pictures of Danniella as Sam. I’ve gotta say, she looks overdone. She’s not aging as well as Sid Owen, is she? What do you think? Leave a comment below.

    i heard that she wasnt on since 2000 cos she was an drug and alcohol addict, is that true? Anyway, i cant wait to see her re-appearance. =)

  2. norman says:

    Has she had her septum repaired then?

  3. Saskia says:

    She looks a bit over done in these pics, but she does look lovely in person and is very sweet to deal with (I have had recent business dealings with her). Yes, she has had her nose repaired. I\’ve not watched Eastenders for years, but think I will be on Friday!

  4. Danielle says:

    her hair looks a little over done but othere than that i think it will be a good for sam to come back again

  5. john says:

    Considering what this girl has been through I think see look great and maybe harsh comments like that should be kept to yourself!.

  6. Steph says:

    Now they just need to bring back Ross Kemp!

  7. ali says:

    she\’s been done up to ott if u ask me, not even bianca looks like that, dress ur age and get rid of the make-up u can look good without it not tartie. look forward to seeing sam back need more excitiment.

  8. linda says:

    Done up like a real Mitchell!!! OTT!! Like mother like daughter!!! Should of brought Ross Kemp back instead!

  9. Daniel says:

    Well i think she looks gorgeous someone else for us guys to look at and just like someone else said "considering what she has been through she looks great." This is true shes been through alot & its nice to see that it\’s turned around for her.Maybe a lil over the top for \’enders yes, but there just publicity shots. I think it\’s good that there having her back on the show, might kick some more life back into the program & if not another bit of eye candy.

  10. Lizi says:

    She looks fabulous and is my best friends niece so i am bias. good for her i think she has done well and wish her success. Lizi in Beccles

  11. Natalie says:

    the reason she is so over done with make up is becaus her looks were destroyed hrough drug abuse (hello) are you forgetting she was a severe drug user cocaine !!!hence the dodgy nose!!!didnt she burn out her inner nose with the habbit? would of prefered to see sam n2 back a lot of teenagers watch eastenders what message are we sending them??

  12. christine says:

    I think its good shes back, but also think it wouldve been nice to see billy and hes wife get back together again

  13. evelyn says:

    how can you say shes lookin good cos shes not,put her on tv without any makeup,she looks older than she is,and someone mentioned drugs,she should not be back on tv at all after all the drugs name down the bottom of this page wat people say bout the drugs are true so why should we keep comments to ourselves.

  14. Rob says:

    people do crazy things and people make wrong choices in their life. Should we be theones to judge? no. The woman is trying to get her life back on trac after kicking the habit, so let her do it. What message does that send out to those who are yet to kick the habt or feel like if they do not they will have nothing left? She shows that no matter what problems and mess we get ourselves into, we can all bounce back. Fair play to her, time she was forgiven, live and let live, if you were her, you would grab the opportunity with both hands, so well done BBC for giving her a second chance. We could all do well to forgive and forget sometimes.

  15. Glenda says:

    Some men are easily pleased a bit of made up trash dug out from the gutter, how many second chances will she get, Ricky and Bianca should be together not Ricky and that made up clown Sam, I\’m not bitter just think she\’s horrid on and of screen in my opinion.

  16. Sarah says:

    she looks like roxxie as well

  17. Olivia says:

    she looks like ronnie but alot older

  18. Olivia says:

    yeah and her hair is a right mess

  19. Sweet says:

    Her character\’s make up is over the top- (tarty)! I think its all part of her \’comeback\’ though, and I agree she deserves another chance, just because she used drugs before that shouldn\’t limit her chances. But I do prefer the other Sam – Kim Medcalf. Why couldn\’t they bring her back instead??Anyway atleast there will some exciting things happening… Eastenders was starting to get boring…

  20. Glenda says:

    I was not just one little slip and used drugs once she had loads of chances and help to get her act together I want to see a deserved talent not one like her my opinion of course sorry if this offends, I do beleive everyone should get a second chance but to me she has had her share !!!!!!!you look at here close up she looks terrible so guess she is a good advert to how you look if you take drugs so could always be on an anti drug poster.

    This is one ugly girl back end of a bus at least she is off the cocain now
