Fans have backed former EastEnders star Danniella Westbrook as she revealed on This Morning how she is assisting people with drug challenges.
From 1990 to 2016, Danniella played Sam Mitchell on EastEnders intermittently.
Kim Medcalf took her place, and she is presently reprising her beloved character.
Danniella, who has been candid about her past addiction problems, said today that she is now “happier than ever” since giving up narcotics.
The soon-to-be 50-year-old former actress told broadcasters Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary of This Morning, “I’m happy to be alive after everything I’ve put myself through.”
“I’m hoping to work as a nanny. I’m absolutely overjoyed to be in this chapter right now. I just wanted to understand that I’m ok with who I am, and I am.
You don’t need to go to rehab, she told the audience, explaining that she attends free 12 Steps sessions and has a “great therapist.” You need to get to a meeting because all they’re going to do is detox you.
Danniella described how she helps people who are struggling with addiction by directing them to the closest meetings and, on occasion, making contact with the leaders on their behalf.
After Alison questioned the soap star about her love life, the actress responded in a charming way.
I’m falling in love with myself for the first time, Alison, she said. Although I am with someone, I am simply content with who I am.
Those watching at home were glad to see Danniella smiling, and they responded to the uncut interview on social media.
On Twitter, one person commented: “Lovely to see you are keeping well, looking fantastic too.” ‘Xxx @westbrookdanni #ThisMorning’ Thank you so much for talking about addictions; it will assist people who need it.
She’s at least joyful, which is wonderful for her this morning, said another.
