Samantha Womack rushed to hopsital

Samantha Womack was rushed to hospital after getting pizza stuck in her throat.

The 'EastEnders' actress - who plays Ronnie Mitchell in the soap - got the tasty treat lodged in her throat and had to receive medical attention to ensure her airways were ''fully clear'' and she was able to breathe.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''It was terrifying for her.

''Once doctors had removed the food they put a camera down her throat to ensure the airway was fully clear.''

The blonde beauty was left ''deeply embarrassed'' following the incident.

Meanwhile, Samantha's alter-ego has been showing a dark side to her since her return to Albert Square last year.

Viewers saw Ronnie murder the nefarious Carl White (Daniel Coonan) - who had been wooing her sister Roxy Mitchell (Rita Simons) - and Samantha admitted the dramatic scenes have been an interesting challenge, but she's glad to be back.

She previously said: ''It's strange coming back with such a big storyline and being a different character, but at the same time, it's like coming back to family ... they're all my family, they genuinely are. Even when you're dealing with a difficult storyline and it feels really weird and out of the normal, that's cool creatively. I'm embracing it.''
