When Danielle was at school, she played Jan in the stage production Grease.
Ronnie gave birth to Danielle when she was just 14. Her malevolent father, Archie, forced Ronnie to give her up, and convinced her that she was dead. Timid, and scared of rejection, Danielle didn't show many signs of being a Mitchell. She constantly looked to best friend Stacey for guidance, but all she ever wanted was to be accepted and loved by her mother.
An unplanned pregnancy and abortion helped her grow close to Ronnie. She set out to reveal her true identity at evil grandfather Archie's wedding. Unfortunately, Danielle met a sudden end in 2009 under the wheels of Janine Butcher's car, shortly after Ronnie discovered her secret. She died in her mother's arms.
The Secret Daughter (2008-2009)
Danielle tells Ronnie that she's pregnant and Ronnie advises her to get an abortion, unaware that's her grandchild. In April 2009, she finally tells Ronnie the truth at her grandfather and great-aunt Peggy’s wedding. At first, Ronnie disbelieved and threw out of the pub but later, Ronnie believed her. She later died in her Ronnie's arms after being run over by a speeding Janine behind the wheel.
