Finally, we get the answer many of you have been asking, Danniella Westbrook WILL return to EastEnders and reprise the role of Samantha Mitchell.

The Big Brother finalist spoke about the excitement of having all three of Peggy Mitchell's children on screen to say their goodbye's.

"I'm really excited to be going back to ­EastEnders," the actress told Talk TV  Daily Mirror,
"It feels right the Mitchells are all back for Peggy's funeral, and I can't wait to work alongside everyone again. "

Executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins said: "It is only right that all of Peggy Mitchell's children would be at her funeral.

"Danniella is the final piece of the Mitchell jigsaw puzzle, so it will be great for viewers to see Phil, Grant and Sam all back on screen.

"Sam will only be back for a few episodes, but these scenes are bound to go down in the soap's history."

The beloved Barbara Windsor appeared on screen earlier this year as Peggy Mitchell to reveal to her son Phil that she has terminal cancer. It will mean so much to the character to have all of her children by her side when she breathes her last breath.

The scenes are due to air in the spring.
