After admitting she'd 'love nothing more' than a return to EastEnders, Danniella Westbrook confirmed it's likely she'll get her wish!

The actress has only just left our screens after finishing fifth place in the Celebrity Big Brother final on Friday, but from the sounds of it we'll be seeing a lot more of her.

In an interview on This Morning, Danniella revealed she has been approached by EastEnders and will "probably" return to the soap.

She told Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby that as well as the potential reappearance of Sam Mitchell in Walford, she's also been offered a longer stint on another soap!

Danniella explained: "They're in talks with my agent, but I've been offered another soap for a longer run. But I might go into EastEnders for a small while.

"I'm an actress and as much as I love EastEnders, I want to stretch myself and do other roles. But you will probably see me in EastEnders."

During her time on CBB, Danniella made clear her desire to return to the soap through pre-written tweets uploaded by her management while she was staying in the house.

They 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."

Danniella's announcement follows the news that Ross Kemp, who starred in Enders as Grant Mitchell, is also set to make a comeback to Albert Square this Spring.

Looking forward to this?!
