Danni: I was not scared by EastEn­ders

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

TROU­BLED actress Dan­niella West­brook has hit back at claims she was “fired” from EastEn­ders.

The 42-year-old star re­cently re­turned to reprise her role as Samantha Mitchell on the top BBC soap.

She re­acted to news­pa­per re­ports al­leg­ing she was “sacked or axed”, telling Piers Mor­gan and Su­sanna Reid on Good Morn­ing Bri­tain that she was only ever con­tracted to re­turn to Al­bert Square for two weeks.

She said: “I did ex­actly my con­tract.”

Com­ment­ing on re­ports about her al­legedly be­ing late for work re­peat­edly, she said she had only been late once – af­ter her car broke down.

She also re­vealed that while she would like to have stayed on longer in EastEn­ders, her dream was to land a part in ITV’s ri­val soap Em­merdale.

Dan­niella said: “I’d love to be in Em­merdale, I’m a coun­try girl.

“I’d quite like to go and do some­thing new and be a dif­fer­ent char­ac­ter.” A FISH Called Wanda is the only movie with a recorded death by laugh­ter
