Former EastEnders star, Daniella Westbrook, broke down into tears during an emotional interview on ITV’s This Morning.
Daniella, who was spotted fighting with her boyfriend, Tom Richards in the street just last week, left England on Saturday, after being told her drug use would be revealed in the media the following day.
The actress has previously been very open about her past drug use, and this time is no exception. Speaking about the situation, Daniella said : “The newspapers have done me a huge favour – the first thing I said to the journalist was, ‘thank you very much because you’ve done me a huge favour.’”
Daniella suffered a miscarriage back in April and has clearly been suffering deeply since the breakdown of her 13 year marriage to Kevin Jenkins last December.
She tells the hosts of This Morning, Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, how she has told her family about the drug use: “I told my mum three weeks ago at her house … My younger brother just emailed me this morning and I know I’ve broken his heart.”
The actress’ struggle with cocaine has been widely known for years now, beginning when she was only a teenager and starring in EastEnders as Samantha Mitchell.
Hopefully now she can get the help she needs to be healthy and happy.
