EastEnders star Danniella Westbrook has confirmed her new boyfriend is in prison.
Danniella – who played Sam Mitchell on the BBC One soap opera – took to social media to deny rumors she was dating businessman Terry Andrews and revealed information about her real partner.
The actress wrote on Twitter: “This is not my boyfriend. It was a working lunch. My friend is in prison!!!’.
“Never heard of that Towie person in my life? And I was at a working lunch and went later that day to look at fabric and furniture samples for a possible advertising project, which I turned down.’
Daniella played in various EastEnders stations between 1990 and 2016 and more recently Sam strike the long-running series drama after it was confirmed that Kim Medcalf was selected to reprise the role.
The 48-year-old explained the EastEnders would be hearing from their “legal team” and hinted at future revelations which she has “never shared” in her forthcoming book.
Taking to the social media platform, she wrote: “Wishing Kym the best of luck at @BBCEastenders.”
She added: “Once again this poor woman has to recreate a Samantha Mitchell so close to my last two recent comebacks on the court that she smashes it darling..x
“But not @bbceeastenders, my legal team will be in touch with you…”
She continued in a second tweet, “@bbceastenders to know why when I had the… @bbceeastenders contract the last two times as well the character would bounce in and out on an evaluation or stint.
“For the record, I’ve never been fired or fired and have seen both contracts, one of which even got episode extensions.”
The BBC declined to comment when contacted by Metro.co.uk back then.
Between 2002 and 2005, Sam starred in a number of major storylines, most notably the Den Watts murder case, in which she teamed up with Chrissie Watts and Zoe Slater.
After Kim’s departure, Danniella returned to the role, appearing sporadically until her final appearance at Peggy’s funeral in 2016.
