ACTRESS Danniella Westbrook (pictured) is set to make a shock return to Eastenders - nine years after her cocaine addiction destroyed her nose.

The 35-year-old star, from Higham, confirmed rumours that she planning a return to the show on Monday.

She last appeared on television in 2003 in ITV's I'm a Celebrity Get Me out of Here, having left Eastenders in 2000 as shocking pictures of her damaged septum emerged.

Since then she has kept a low-profile and made a brief public appearance in April 2004 to open a new £250,000 classroom pavilion at Gad's Hill School, Higham - where her child goes to school.

On Monday she said: "I'm really happy - it really feels just like coming home. I'm looking forward to working with the others and I can't wait to get the scripts to see what Sam has been up to since she was last in the Square."

Eastenders executive producer Diederick Santer added: "It feels like a great time to bring Sam back."

Danniella is due to start filming this summer.

She married businessman Kevin Jenkins in 2001 and has a six-year-old daughter called Jody B.
