Will she or won’t she go back to Walford? Seems like she won’t.
On Loose Women yesterday Daniella Westbrook revealed that she was would be heading back to EastEnders at the end of the year.
But hold your horses because now she’s done a U-turn and says she has no plans to go back to the Square at all.
She makes it sound like it’s her choice and nothing to do with producers of the show.
The 43-year-old actress said on Twitter: “I have zero plans to return to @bbceastenders about they haven’t spoke to me for years I was there working last year! I want 2 do new things.”
Show producers at the BBC are apparently a bit confused by it all, wondering whether they have a say in her return.
A source said: “It’s very odd that she keeps harping on about her return to the soap because it has plainly never been discussed.”
She then responded to the knock-back by tweeting: “Best bit of news I’ve had all year onwards and upwards ..#RipSamMitchell.”
Quite why an actress would think it’s good news to be told you’ll never return to the nation’s most-watched TV drama is perhaps best left to the imagination.
Just a few hours earlier she posted a slightly scruffy message on Instagram claiming she’d never had any intention of going back to playing Sam.
She wrote: “And for the record I have no interest in going back to EastEnders I was being polite – I’m busy with new ventures and new beginnings x”
It is the exact opposite of what she ‘revealed’ on Loose Women on Thursday and her followers couldn’t understand it.
Danniella had said Sam Mitchell would be back at “the end of the year”.
Asked about ever returning to Eastenders she said: “There’s a big chance of me going back into EastEnders. I’m going to be back there at the end of the year.”
She also opened up about taking drugs during filming last year when Peggy Mitchell’s funeral scenes were being shot.
She was at a real low, understandably, after suffering a miscarriage with her then-boyfriend George Arnold.
She said: “I had a miscarriage last May and I was at work at EastEnders at the time as well so only George and I knew about it.
“It really broke my heart and at the time I was in a bad place and I used and then my psychosis went crazy.”
