Danniella Westbrook would rather land a role on 'Emmerdale' than stay on 'EastEnders'.
The 42-year-old actress is reprising her role as Sam Mitchell on the BBC One soap for two weeks to be part of the Peggy Mitchell cancer storyline.
Although she has enjoyed being back on Albert Square, Daniella's dream acting job would be on the ITV soap and she would love to have a romance with a member of the Dingle family.
Speaking on 'Good Morning Britain', she said: "I guess I would sort of like to go back to 'EastEnders' - but my dream would be 'Emmerdale'. I would love to join and have an affair with one of the Dingles."
The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' star's 'EastEnders' return was only ever going to be a short-term thing for "two weeks" as the Mitchells, including Grant Mitchell (Ross Kemp), return for the death of family matriarch Peggy (Dame Barbara Windsor).
One disappointment for Daniella - who will feature in four episodes in the coming weeks - is that she never got to shoot a scene with all the Mitchell family together.
She said: "I expected to work alongside them but I didn't do a single scene with them. I thought it would be nice for us all to do something together but it didn't happen."
