Taking to Twitter after the announcement, Danniella claimed EastEnders would hear from their “legal team” and also hinted at future revelations, which she “never shared” in her upcoming book.

Danniella began her tirade with a cryptic tweet that read, “Well who knew [laughing emojis] All I can say is thanks, looks like I dodged a bullet.”

The TV star wished Kim well as she reprises the role both actresses have played over the years and suggested Kim needed to play it similarly to her version of Sam.

She wrote: “I wish Kym the best of luck at @BBCEastEnders this poor woman has to recreate yet another Samantha Mitchell so close to my last two recent comebacks on the court, smash it darling..x.”

Danniella added: “Oh but not to @BBCEastEnders, my legal team will be in touch with you to find out why when I did the…

‘@bbceeastenders contract also the last two times the character jumped in and out of 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. It’s great 2 C the same level of standards of care and loyalty 2

“@bbceeastenders you talk about having both new and old cast members and giving still goes as strong as ever… not just me as Sam who needs replacing, I would look closer to the front of the show and cut.” This dead wood is all about development.’

“I bet you all can’t wait for my new book now can you… oh it’s going to go way back to the things I never told #beafraidpeople #itsallgood”.

Days later, Danniella told The Sun that she was “shocked” not to have been informed of the casting decision before it was made public.

She said: “I’ve been known as Sam Mitchell for 32 years. But nobody at EastEnders has contacted me to say they’ve recast Kim in the role. There wasn’t even an email to my agent. I was shocked because they have a responsibility to tell me and someone should do it.

The star added, “The bosses have seen me go through addiction and they have no idea where I am today.

“Luckily I’m fine. But if it hadn’t been me, the consequences could have been very serious.’

The daughter of Peggy Mitchell made her debut in Walford in 1990, originally played by Danniella, but was replaced by Kim in 2002 while battling her publicized cocaine addiction.
