“If Hollywood wants to call, I’m here!” she said at the National Television Awards in October.

“I’ve been for some talks and I’d love to go to LA for pilot season.”

Speaking to the Mirror, Danielle said filming the emotional scenes can be hard, but reckons that if she can help to raise more awareness about brain tumours, and the thousands of people living with them, it will all be worth it.

“It’s hard and emotional, but good to film,” Danielle said. “I just want to get it right.

“You’re putting yourself through what you think that person is feeling – which is nothing compared to what they’re actually going through – but it takes its toll. It’s draining.

“I’m whacked after work. Once I finish for the day, I take a minute to appreciate my own life – and realise how lucky I am.”

Danielle also worked losely with Brain Tumour Research and Macmillan Cancer Support on the storyline.

“I’ve done tonnes of research and met so many families,” she said. “They’ve been crucial.

“When news of the storyline came out, I had so many people get in contact with me. I didn’t realise how many people it affects.

“It’s not spoken about much so that’s why I’m so glad we’re doing this story, to raise awareness."

Elsewhere on the soap, a flashforward to Christmas Day was aired on Monday.

In the shocking moment, six female characters are stood watching over a dead body on the floor - while the identity of the murder victim is not known.

It's been suggested that all six women - Stacey Slater, Kathy Beale, Suki Panesar, Denise Fox, Linda Carter and Sharon Watts - are suspects, and that one of them has killed the mystery man.
