Christmas time is a time meant to be spent at home with your friends and family. It’s one of the few days of the year when we can forget our troubles and relax.
Unfortunately for Danniella Westbrook, she is having to rely on the kindness and generosity of her friends this Christmas.
The former Eastenders star has been left homeless just days away from Christmas. It’s the worst timing since Danniella has been trying to get her life back on track after having relapsed back onto drugs for a brief period.
Though the star has now had her home and car taken away from her, meaning she’s in a desperate situation.
The 43-year-old was left seriously ill in August, she was stuck in the hospital after getting septicemia. This meant that Danniella couldn’t work for a while until she recovered.
Because of that, she was left with no money to pay bills and such.
The former Eastenders star is now ‘homeless’ and is being forced so sofa crash, living ‘here, there and everywhere’. Though luckily for Danniella, she’s not having to live on the streets.
Luckily for Danniella, her family and friends have come together to help her out in her hour of need.
She’s currently looking for a new home to move into, but she hasn’t found anywhere suitable for her.
A source close to Danniella said ‘obviously the timing isn’t great with it being so close to Christmas. She’s not rushing into anything and she is staying with friends and family over the festive period.’
Just a week ago she was forced to hand back her leased car. But thankfully for Danniella, she’s been sent a lifeline. She’s been offered a sponsorship deal with a car dealership, Redditch-based car dealer Lakeside Car Sales Ltd.
‘Danniella now has a whole new team surrounding her after spending a lot of 2016 with toxic people.’
