Danniella Westbrook is ‘really poorly’ in intensive care unit as doctors fear for her BRAINOctober 29, 2021
DANNIELLA Westbrook is "really poorly" in an intensive care unit as doctor's fear for her BRAIN after a sinus infection turned nasty.
The former EastEnders actress told her concerned fans she was “back again” in hospital on Thursday night as she shared a photograph outside an ambulance.
Danniella, 47, appeared in good spirts earlier this week as she enjoyed a night out– looking almost unrecognisable after getting filler and Botox.
But the actress was taken into ICU after a sinus infection was failed to be treated by antibiotics leaving her "really poorly".
She shared a photograph to Instagram showing herself arriving at hospital as doctor's worried the infection could spread to "her brain".
A close pal exclusively told Sun Online: "Danniella is really poorly. She ended up in ICU after antibiotics for a sinus infection didn't work.
"Experts were concerned infected mucus could track back to her brain, but she is being well cared for in hospital and is on the mend."
The insider concluded that Danniella was back in a normal hospital ward as she continued to get better with the help of doctors.
It comes after she bravely revealed she had relapsed amid her drug addiction battle and was now getting help.
The actress, who has struggled with drug use for many years, admitted she is now searching for a natural high and has quit champagne and cocaine.
In a searingly honest post earlier this month, the star told how she was starting from today, saying she was “totally over” her old addiction-filled life.
She told her followers: “OK so here goes …. HONESTY POST. So it’s no secret since leaving rehab I’ve slipped and slides more than I have been straight I guess.
“But today I’ve joined a new gym restarted my herbal life and going back to the rooms tonight.
"I’m done with the drinking, the occasional packet and night out. I’m totally over it.
“I know the best years of my whole adult life was the 14 years I spent clean and sober. So today’s the day I go back. Own my s**t. Pick up the newcomers ring with pride not shame .
“I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired and feeling shame and a fraud when people tell me I’m doing well. I’ve done better this time round but I’m done I’m so bloody bored of it all.
“So today I’m saying. Hello I’m Danniella and I’m a recovering drug addict.”
The star continued: “I haven’t had a rock bottom this time, I’m just all over the whole vicious circle that is crippling disease that stops me and from being the best me I can be and from reaching my full potential.
“I’m lucky this time I’m not crawling in the rooms a snivelling skinny bag head … I was meant for more than this and this last few years f**king about has show me, that cocaine and champagne ain’t got the high I want.”
Danniella has been hooked on drugs since she was 14 after shooting to fame as Sam Mitchell in EastEnders.
