Daniella Westbrook is capitalising on her time in the Celebrity Big Brother house by lining up acting work.

Westbrook (42) starred in EastEnders as Sam Mitchell for twenty years before leaving the soap in 2010.

Speaking to Rylan Clarke on This Morning on Monday she revealed she will return to the soap that made her.

"They're in talks with my agent but I've been offered another soap for a longer run.  But I might go into EastEnders for a small while."

She added, "I'm an actress and as much as I love EastEnders I want to stretch myself and do other roles.  But you will probably see me in EastEnders."

Should Daniella return it would most likely be around the time of beloved character Peggy Mitchell's death.

Barbara Windsor is leaving the soap later this year and both Phil and Grant Mitchell (Ross Kemp) are believed to be playing a role in the storyline.

One of Daniella's friends tweeted a message on her behalf while she was in the CBB house.

"I would love nothing more than to return to @bbceastenders #sammmitchell.

"My heart belongs to @bbceastenders #sammitchell."
