Danniella Westbrook threatens BBC with legal action as she’s replaced on EastEnders

Danniella Westbrook has threatened to sue the BBC after she was replacing as Sam Mitchell on EastEnders. 

Kim Medcalf will again be taking on the character rather than Danniella, who originally played the fiery former lap-dancer.

The former star has now threatened to take legal action against the corporation in an angry tweet following the announcement.

The actress wrote: “Wishing Kym the best of luck at @BBCEastenders__ yet again this poor woman has to recreate a Samantha Mitchell as close to my last two recent come backs on the square go smash it darling..x oh but not to @bbceastenders my legal team will be in touch.”
