Dan­niella West­brook

Now (UK) - - Contents - Words by Amy Nick­ell

Amis­car­riage, a break-up and an on­line melt­down – it’s been a tough few weeks for Dan­niella West­brook.

After con­flict­ing re­ports sur­round­ing her split from lat­est fi­ancé Alan Thama­son, the former Easten­ders ac­tress, 43, took to Twit­ter in an at­tempt to clear up the ru­mours.

Con­firm­ing her break-up and the end of her shock preg­nancy in one heart­felt post – while also ac­cus­ing Alan of smash­ing up their hotel room in Benidorm, some­thing he’s de­nied – Dan­niella fumed, ‘Hurt­ing from my loss. The hotel wasn’t the only thing he de­stroyed that day. I never knew him at all! Walk­ing away. #Enoughise­nough #cat­fish.’

Ini­tially, fans rushed to share their con­cerns for the trou­bled star, with com­ments of sup­port such as, ‘Stay strong’ and ‘Don’t let this stop the war­rior girl you’ve be­come... keep your head up, lippy on, stay strong... the rest jog on.’

An­other added, ‘Don’t for­get fo­cus on fu­ture not the past you have come so far.’

‘Stay strong please. You’ve got a lot of peo­ple root­ing for you. Be­lieve that. Take care and please be more trust­ing, you’re too nice,’ an­other wrote.

Sug­gest­ing these lat­est set­backs have hit her harder than ever, Dan­niella then in­sisted she would be tak­ing a break from so­cial me­dia, adding, ‘I’m re­cov­er­ing with fam­ily and com­ing off so­cial me­dia for a lit­tle while.’

Dan­niella re­vealed that she and 34-year-old Alan were ex­pect­ing last month. She’s al­ready Mum to Kai, 21, with Robert Fer­nan­dez, and Jody, 16, from her marriage to Kevin Jenk­ins.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Dan­niella has played her life out on so­cial me­dia, and not ev­ery­one was sym­pa­thetic.

One fol­lower fumed, ‘Putting ev­ery­thing on so­cial me­dia isn’t going to help you!’

‘Still don’t think you should have an­nounced it to the world on na­tional tv when you were only “5 weeks” gone. Ter­ri­ble thing to hap­pen tho.’

And de­spite pre­vi­ously brand­ing women who smoke dur­ing preg­nancy ‘dis­gust­ing ’, Dan­niella was spot­ted with what ap­peared to be a cig­a­rette on hol­i­day two weeks ago.

Dan­niella’s bat­tles with drug ad­dic­tion and her colour­ful love life are well doc­u­mented. The re­formed ad­dict pre­vi­ously ad­mit­ted to us­ing co­caine dur­ing both her pre­vi­ous preg­nan­cies, and fa­mously lost her nasal sep­tum due to her ad­dic­tion. However, she has in­sisted she’s a ‘dif­fer­ent per­son now’.

After a rise to fame in the 90s, the trou­bled star quickly gained a rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing ‘un­lucky in love’ with a string of failed re­la­tion­ships. De­spite in­sist­ing Alan was dif­fer­ent, it looks like Dan­niella has been left with an­other bro­ken heart.

We’re wish­ing Dan­niella a speedy re­turn to her best fol­low­ing this dif­fi­cult time.
