Danniella Westbrook shares health fears as she begs followers for help with blackouts

Fans of Danniella Westbrook are concerned about the reality TV star after she admitted to “blacking out” regularly.

The former Eastenders actress, who starred in the show from 1990 to 2000 and again from 2009 to 2016, made the startling revelation in a recent Instagram video.

Danniella, 49, appeared on camera while holding her head as she described the horrible pain she has been experiencing in recent weeks.

“I have come on to get some advice from people because I keep passing out and every now and again I am having seizures," she told her 103k followers.


“I keep getting blackness over this side of my face. I’m sweating hot, burning up but I am freezing cold. And my throat is so bad.”

“I can’t get anything to go down. I just keep crying, you know when you are that ill and you just keep crying. I want my mum and I am 49. I don’t know what to do if I should ring an ambulance or not. I don’t want to waste people’s time,” she added.

Luckily, Danniella updated fans later in the day and said she had been in contact with emergency services about the pain.

This comes after the former I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here contestant, who starred in the show with celebs like Linda Barker and John Fashanu, broke up with her mystery man.

The man, who is believed to be called David, was living with Danniella in Spain prior to their breakup.

Speaking to The Sun, a source close to the actress said: “Danniella and her prison boyfriend David have unfortunately decided to part ways after a really long and tough relationship.”

They continued: "The pressures of him in prison and being unable to see Danniella properly meant that their relationship was extremely unstable.

"It’s been so difficult for Danniella but she’s decided to do what’s best for herself.

"She really did love him, she thought he was the one.”

“We can confirm that Danniella has indeed split up with her partner, the decision hasn’t come lightly and it is a decision that she feels is best for her and her career at this moment in time,” the star’s reps confirmed.

Danniella met David in Spain back in 2017 before he was sentenced to nin-years behind bars in 2019.

Speaking to the Daily Star, she explained: "I've known him for years. I met him in 2017 out in Spain and when we were both living out there and we got together out there and it was a tumultuous relationship it was on off all the time.

"But we just stayed in touch and he went to jail early 2019 and he got 9 years 9 months. He's home next year though, he's got 11 months to go."
