Danniella Westbrook is reportedly in talks for a new EastEnders comeback as Sam Mitchell.
The 46-year-old has played the character - sister of Phil and Grant and daughter of Peggy - on and off since 1990 and was most recently seen in 2016 in a cameo appearance for Peggy's funeral.
Between 2002 and 2005 the character was recast as Westbrook battled a severe cocaine addiction that left her without a nasal septum, but now she is clean and sober and keen to make a Walford return.
"I think I will go back," Westbrook told the Daily Star. "Someone is talking to me at the minute about a return.
"It's my 30-year anniversary since the day I joined the show. I'm a different person today, a very different person.
"I think the show is missing people to play a matriarch. When I joined there was Pauline, Pat, Peggy - all them older characters.
"Sharon has only got so many people to play against now. You've got Sharon and Kathy - and her and Sam have a lot of history.
"I want to go back to work. I want to go back to EastEnders even if it's just for three months just to round something off for me."
