The tweets from her management read: "Before entering @bbuk Danniella requested we post this next tweet so the next tweet was pre written by @westbrookdanni.

"I would love nothing more than to return to @bbceastenders, it was my home and family for many years and I miss it terribly #alwaysamitchell."

A following tweet said: "My heart belongs to @bbceastenders #sammitchell."

News of Danniella coming back to EastEnders as Sam Mitchell has been doing the rounds following major Mitchell news this week.

The soap announced that Dame Barbara Windsor will bow out of the soap for good as Peggy Mitchell in an upcoming soap storyline, and that Ross Kemp will briefly reprise his role as Peggy's son Grant Mitchell for her exit scenes.

A rep for EastEnders said this week: "Peggy's final episodes are still being finalised, so it is too early to say if any other characters from the Mitchell family will be returning. We have definitely not ruled out anyone at this stage."
