Danniella Westbrook outlines her plans to return to EastEnders as Sam Mitchell for a sixth time.

Danniella Westbrook has said that she is keen to reprise her role as Sam Mitchell in EastEnders for a sixth time.

The 46-year-old has played the younger sibling of Phil and Grant on and off since 1990, most recently appearing in a few episodes in 2016 for her mother Peggy's funeral.

In the soap, iconic boozer the Queen Vic is currently up for sale after Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) decided to give up the pub trade because of his wife Linda's (Kellie Bright) alcoholism.

Sam's brother Phil (Steve McFadden) has already agreed to buy the Vic in an attempt to win back Sharon (Letitia Dean), but Westbrook has other ideas on how the storyline should go.

"I'd like to go back and take the Queen Vic over, I'd love to," she told Paul Danan's podcast. "I think Sam should buy it behind Phil's back.

"Her and Sharon don't get on anyway. She can give Sharon some hell, sleep with a few people - that's what she always does."

EastEnders continues Mondays and Tuesdays on BBC One.
