Danniella recently hit out at EastEnders for reportedly not informing her that her role as Sam Mitchell had been recast.
Kim Medcalf has been chosen to reprise the role over her.
Speaking to The Sun, Danniella said she was ‘shocked’ not to have been told about the casting decision prior to it being made public.
She said: ‘I’ve been known as Sam Mitchell for 32 years. But nobody at EastEnders contacted me to let me know they had recast Kim in the role. There wasn’t even an email to my agent. I was shocked because they do have a responsibility to tell me and someone should have.’
The star – who has struggled with drug addiction since the age of 14 – added: ‘The bosses have seen me go through addiction and they have no idea where I am today.
‘Thankfully I’m OK. But if I hadn’t been it could have had very serious consequences for me.’
