Actress’ boyfriend hospitalised after collapsing on her doorstep


Former Eastenders actress Danniella Westbrook may have been enjoying the trip of a lifetime in Egypt with her newly engaged pals Chris Maloney and Gary Doran this weekend, but she went through a pretty traumatic event before she left.

The actress' on-and-off boyfriend Tom Richards, who is struggling with drug and alcohol addiction issues, reportedly had to be rushed to hospital after collapsing on Danniella's doorstep recently.

It's believed police were called to Danniella's house after reports of a raging row, but that Tom had collapsed by the time they arrived, due to an overdose of prescription drugs combined with alcohol.

This isn't the first time that a row between the pair has escalated out of control. Back in the summer Danniella was seen throwing her phone at Tom's head during an on-street argument, and before Christmas Tom was arrested at a London hotel after yet another heated argument.

This most recent incident has apparently prompted Danniella to end her relationship with Tom once and for all, but she is having a hard time cutting ties with him "Danniella was ­absolutely horrified. Their relationship has been very fiery," a source told the Sunday People. "She finally had the strength to end it properly but Tom is making things very difficult for her."

It's been a tough few months for Danniella, who admitted on Twitter last year that she was living in sheltered housing having lost her home.

We hope that things start to look up for the actress.
