The last time we saw Sam, she was jetting off to the sunshine to run a hotel, hoping to put some money in the bank for son Ricky (Frankie Day) and her future grandchild, promising to come back for the baby’s birth.
Unfortunately, Ricky was left devastated when baby Charli arrived, and his mother was nowhere to be seen.
But now, Sam Mitchell is back, and she arrives in ‘typical Sam Mitchell chaos’ according to actress Kim Medcalf.
‘Sam is thrown out of the back of a van and collides with Phil’ she revealed. ‘She tries to make a joke about it, as she always does, and tries to brush it off, but we pretty soon find out she’s in a lot of trouble. Sam’s done her usual trick of taking an easy route, and it’s all gone wrong and backfired on her.’
It is soon revealed that Sam owes a drug boss a whole load of cash, and she is quick to ask big brother Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) to help her out, much to the disgust of wife Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace).

It isn’t long before Sam runs into drug boss Camillo once more, who aggressively grabs her by the arm, as Kat watches on, concerned.
‘Sam is really scared and doesn’t know quite how to handle this – she’s completely out of her depth,’ Kim explained. ‘Camillo is not a man to be messed with, and that’s why Sam is so scared because there’s no bluffing this one out.’
Luckily for Sam, Kat is quick to act, rallying Phil and Billy (Perry Fenwick) to help Sam out.

‘She’s gobsmacked that Kat rallies around and that Phil and Billy are there so quickly. It’s that whole ‘blood is thicker than water’ thing.
‘At the end of the day, there’s a guy there about to take Kat’s sister-in-law away, and it’s just instinct for her to protect Sam.’
With his sister facing extreme danger, Phil agrees to get Camillo his money, saving Sam in the process, though Sam doesn’t feel bad about dragging him into her mess, as Kim explained.
‘I think she’s just relieved. She has such respect and belief in her brother. To Sam, Phil is made of steel. So, she thinks this isn’t such a big deal to him, although paying out that amount of money hurts.
‘After Camillo leaves, Sam doesn’t want to think about it and wants to move on. That’s how Sam gets through life – she doesn’t spend a lot of time looking back over things.’
Will Sam be able to move on, or will Camillo come back for more?
