Former 'EastEnders' actress Danniella Westbrook is desperate to appear on 'Celebrity Big Brother' following her confession she is living in sheltered accommodation
Danniella Westbrook could be set to star in 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The former 'EastEnders' star has been linked to a stint on the upcoming 15th series of the Channel 5 reality show - which kicks off in January - after admitting she's living in sheltered accommodation and relying on food banks to feed her family.
A source revealed: "Danniella sees 'Celebrity Big Brother' as her only option now."
The 41-year-old actress - who has 18-year-old son Kai from her relationship with Robert Fernandez and 13-year-old daughter Jody with ex-husband Kevin Jenkins - is in need of the fee she would receive for appearing on the programme after being dropped from a pantomime in Torquay due to a cocaine relapse earlier this year.
The insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "She hates to leave her kids, but she needs cash, and fast."
Danniella - who previously appeared on ITV reality show 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' in 2003 - confessed in a recent interview she has had the "worst year" of her life.
She said: "It's a car crash and I have to say, I thought that nearly losing my life was the worst point of my life, but I think that this year has been the worst year that I've ever had in my life, to lose one thing after another after another."
