EastEnders spoilers: Sam Mitchell returns to soap – but who’s …

This is a big one in terms of EastEnders spoilers. Sam Mitchell is returning to EastEnders, but she won’t be played by Danniella Westbrook.

Danniella was last seen in the role of Phil and Grant’s younger sister in 2016.

However, actress Kim Medcalfe, 48, is set to reprise the role.

Who played Sam in EastEnders – and when?

In 2002, Kim took over as Sam from Danniella.

The actor played the part until 2005. Danniella was playing Sam when she returned in 2009.

Sam attended the funeral of her mother Peggy during her last stint before abandoning her son Ricky with his father Jack Branning.

She returned to Spain on her own.

And now she’s on her way back for him, backed by a slew of explosive storylines.

EastEnders spoilers: How will she return?

BBC soap bosses have been in talks with Kim since last autumn, according to The Sun.

“Sam’s return has been on the cards for some time,” a source told the newspaper. They thought she’d be a good fit for this version of Sam. It’s not that Danniella is a bad person; she made a name for herself as the character.

“However, as is common in soap operas, the executives wanted to recast Sam and take him in a different direction. Kim will start filming in two weeks, and everyone is ecstatic.”

In a statement Kim said: “When the BBC approached me last year to reprise the role of Sam I was thrilled.

“She’s a brilliant character and I can’t wait to get back in the Square and work with the amazing cast.”

BBC head of continuing drama Kate Oates added: “I have long wanted to bring Sam back into the family fold.

“Her return is guaranteed to be explosive.”

Sam’s return will coincide with her brother Phil’s decision to spend the rest of his life in prison or as a police informant.

He’s been accused of the murder of Vincent Hubbard and has been offered the job of turning grass.

So far, he’s been adamant in his refusal to even consider it.

Will his sister’s arrival, however, influence his decision?
