Former EastEnders star Danniella Westbrook to appear on Hollyoaks
Former EastEnders actress Danniella Westbrook is set to appear on Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks.
The star, 39, who is best known for her role as Sam Mitchell in EastEnders will feature in an upcoming plot-line involving the McQueen family.
Daniella will appear in February as a character called Trudy who is already known by Jacqui McQueen, played by Claire Cooper, as they were once in prison together.
Jacqui ends up working for Trudy as she hires her and Theresa McQueen, played by Jorgie Porter, as cleaners for her strip club.
And Danniella should feel at home on the set of Hollyoaks as she is already friends with some of the cast and appeared on Dancing on Ice with the soap’s actor Kieron Richardson.
A source told the Daily Mirror: “She’s already been to the set and met a lot of the cast.
“Danniella is great friends with Kieron Richardson, who plays Ste Hay, and he has been introducing her to all of his mates.
“She’s been made to feel very at home by everyone.”
