Danniella Westbrook has had to have her teeth removed due to a blood infection
Danniella Westbrook has had to have all her teeth ripped out.
The former 'EastEnders' star has had no choice but to her gnashers removed after contracting a form of septicaemia.
Speaking in a video uploaded to her Twitter account on Thursday (04.08.16), she said: "I've been in hospital. I've had to have all my teeth removed for a blood and bone infection, through no fault of my own. I'm not on drugs and I'm not pregnant ... I'm just very, very, poorly with a blood infection."
But the 42-year-old actress - who had battled with a cocaine addiction in the past - has also had to deal with an alleged "stalker" who, she claims, has been taking pictures of her.
She said: "This stalker is absolutely trying to ruin my life. They're taking pictures through the window of our house. I've had to sell my car because they've taken my car registration."
Danniella - who has two children Jodie, 14, and Kai, 18 - has now decided to close her Twitter account because she can't deal with the stress she's under from the alleged stalker.
She explained: "I'm closing my Twitter down so any messages you get from here on out, won't be from me, it'll be from the person who has got all my details."
Septicaemia is a type of blood poisoning, which is caused by bacteria or their toxins, and can prove fatal if left untreated.
Urgent medical care at hospital is required to stop the infection progressing into sepsis, which occurs when the body's immune system goes into overdrive and can reduce the blood supply to vital organs such as the brain and heart.
