Danniella Westbrook To Leave EastEnders

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.  

Guys, you’re not going to believe this. EastEnders star Danniella Westbrook has only just returned to the soap, and now she’s leaving it again! She’s going at he end of the year apparently.

According to an insider, the intention was only to bring her back for a set amount of time. The source said: "Danniella was brought back to EastEnders for a specific storyline and a set amount of time only. We are not going into the exact details as we don’t want to spoil the storyline for our viewers but Danniella’s contract has not been cut short – in fact it has been extended slightly. We have been thrilled with how Sam Mitchell’s return has been received with our audience and hope that they continue to enjoy her storylines over the next few months."

I don’t know what to make of this – I’m pretty sure that, at the time, the hype around her return didn’t suggest that it was temporary. But what about you? Are you happy to see her go? Share your thoughts by leaving a comment. 

That’s it for me, I’m out of here. I’m blogging Strictly Come Dancing live so join the party at the Strictly Come Dancing blog tonight at 7.30pm. I’ll be back on Monday for a full preview of the action in the soaps this week and don’t forget to try this week’s caption competition.

    ERRRM, i guess her return did twist things slightly. but i dont rly mind if she stays OR goes. This\’ll probaly be an advantage for Bianca – if Ricky stays.

  2. christina says:

    thank god she is going she is horrible she cannot act to save her life, i never know if she`s crying or laughing cause her facial expressions are all the same! good riddance i only wish her departure was sooner!i love eastenders but with her in it im going off it.

  3. margaret says:

    Good grief…….what a shocker!!!!! Who was most deluded when they thought this was a good idea? I\’m afraid Daniella bears more than a passing resemblance to the late Wendy Richards & not in a good way. Please … no more come backs.

  4. Olivia says:

    im so glad shes going coz i tort she woz a rubish actor and she looks to old for her age

  5. Mary says:

    Like something from a waxworks. Bring back the other Sam Mitchell please.Mary

  6. saibh says:

    well said mary couldnt agree more,plus real case of mutton and lamb come to mind.but what id love to know where the all sleeping in th vic i figured at mt had 3/4 bedooms with peggy,phil,ben,roxy,baby,ronnie and new bo,and the other mitchell cousin and young ladno way has it 7 bedrooms

  7. saibh says:

    role on december til shes gone cant act for peanuts,and its a real deterrant do drugs and this how ul look not even a plastic surgeon could perform miracles

  8. susan says:

    glad to see her go she cant act and never could bianca and ricky should have a fairy tale ending

  9. Joan says:

    When Danniella was in E Enders before, she looked quite a little beauty. And she could act! Some prominent actor somewhere said that she reminded him of Catherine Denueve (remember her, you oldies out there?) and I could see what they were talking about. She had a bit of presence about her then, but NOW….well, need I say more. Trouble is, Barbara Windsor likes her so much, so this is why she\’s back in it I think. Time to leave, Sam. Bring back the more feasible Sam, the one with the \’strange mouth\’ – she might be needing the dosh by now, we haven\’t heard of her for a while….

  10. Lisa says:

    I agree with all said, she is a terrible actress, and looks awful, I am sure Daniella is a lovely person, but bringing her back has just made me want to turn Eastenders over now. The show seems so desperate for story lines nowadays they will do any crap.x

  11. Irene says:

    Absolutely delighted to see her go. She is really putting me off watching Eastenders – dont know if I can stick it out till the end of the year. Her acting skills are non-existent.

  12. tamara says:

    totally agree with u all. i cant beleive how much she as aged n acting is shocking, specially when she try,s to cry, its funny

  13. bev says:

    i agree with all the other comments, but wat i dnt understand is when the producer/director called her back n saw the state of her why did they still go ahead n give her back the role. The woman is hideous to watch, cant act to save herself n yes the facial expressions r a joke cause u dnt no which one she is suppose to be doing. she is really wat u call a wahed up actress begging got work n the only place dat wld give her dst is eastenders. december cant come quick enough, maybe Bianca will get her man at last…!!

  14. shelly says:

    Daniella need to go, she cant act she is a total joke. if you was gong to bring back sam then you should of brung back the old sam she was better than this daniella….!!!

  15. Maggie says:

    The make up that is being slapped on her makes her look far worse than she is in real life. I feel sorry for her being brought back into that role even if it\’s what she wanted and like others here am put off eastenders at the moment ….well sort of watching it!

  16. Edith says:

    Thank god they only brought her back short term. I think I would have to stop watching if she was going to be a permanent fixture. At least when she was a teenager, she had an excuse for not being able to act but there\’s no excuse now!!!!!! And the make-up, Wots that all about?????

  17. david says:

    Agree with everyone else – she always looks like she\’s got a very bad smell under her nose and someone should really tell her she can\’t act!

  18. Diane says:

    I think Danniella Westbrook looks awful and should go now.

  19. Richard says:

    yea i thank she should go now too and before her nose drops off . she cant act , and she looks so fake.i dont think i will watch eastenders untill she has gone. im not the only one who thinks that.

  20. Richard says:

    SAVE EASTENDERS…………………. let danniella westbrook go now . don`t let eastenders go the same way as brookside did because of crap acters..

  21. Lesley says:

    I can\’t wait to see the back of her, she can\’t act at all and is very annoying. Thank god she\’s going.

  22. Joy says:

    glad SHE IS GOING. she HAS RUINED HERSELF and only has herself to blame. She is so false and annoying, rubbish actress and I can understand why the photographer said no way to her (tonights show) lol

  23. Alexandra says:

    Glad to hear that she is going…. OMG what acting talents she has NOT……….. She was crap back then and still is……. would u like to see that modeling top less with her fake\’s lol………. Come on eastenders u must have been mad to allow her back, Makes me want to turn off………………

  24. harjit says:

    Well what a relief she is goin back from wherever she came from, she needs a new nose, so ugly, cant act, such a waste of time to bring her back and in a shite storyline,,,,,,,,,,,,,, by sam

  25. AISHA says:

    good daniella is going but should get the other previous woman who played sam

  26. Linda says:

    Get rid. She is an appalling, unconvincing actress.

  27. david says:

    i salute dw most people would never have returned to tv after a horrid past, confidence can now be gained from playing sam again, you go girl make all these negative people eat there words and never look back………..

  28. nicole says:

    hey so who cares is is not a reli gd character anyway who likes her and her fakness i swear she is a bore and she melts me oh and i cant wait to see the back of her and she ricky and Bianca together lol so the plp who make the show hurry up and kill her out or make her leve jst hurry the f up plz

  29. wilma says:

    glad she going , terrible acting

  30. bonnie says:

    what terrible acting, get rid of her before eastenders go down hill, she looks a mess but is not no different in real life she was in a pub a month ago in essex 2 tables away from my table she looked a mess then and still does.

  31. .. says:

    What alot of negative comments on Sam i have no problems with her i think sam comeing back to Eastenders was a nice thing to see i didnt like the other actress that they used the original is always better so it was nice to see her back 🙂 wish people would stop slagging her off she aint all that bad
