She’d been clean for fourteen years.
Danniella Westbrook has admitted that she is back on cocaine since splitting with her fiancée Tom Richards.
The actress has admitted that she has been using the drug again for the last four months.
This is devastating news for the former Eastenders star who has been clean since kicking a £400-a-day cocaine habit which left her without a septum in 2000.
She said: “I have cheapened myself and I’ve cheapened who I am, but that’s a direct example of what alcohol and drugs do.”
It’s been a tough year for the 40-year-old who admitted that after divorcing her husband of 12 years in January before announcing she is now broke.
Things got worse for Danniella this year when her ex sold a story to The Sun on Sunday claiming that the reason for the marriage breakdown was down to the actresses dependency on alcohol.
“All Danniella wants to do is go out… but I know where it leads because I’ve been an addict,” he said.
She then seemed to find happiness with 24-year-old Tom Richards however, this wasn’t to last after Danniella announced she had miscarried the couple’s baby back in June shortly after which it was reported they had split.
Then Danniella and Tom were seen rowing in the street in a BIG WAY last week, culminating in the star throwing her phone at her fiance.
Of her decision to talk about her relapse she said, “I wanted to talk about it. In a way I’m relieved because I probably wouldn’t have had another six months. You just don’t know the outcome, do you?”
Danniella has admitted that she was so addicted to the drug when her son Kai was born seventeen years ago that she snorted a line of the class A drug in the delivery room.
