Danniella Westbrook has revealed she has a new job in Liverpool whitening people's teeth so she can make ends meet after being made homeless
Danniella Westbrook is whitening people's teeth for a living.
The 43-year-old actress has revealed her new profession - just days after declaring herself homeless - and has hinted that she has moved up North from Kent in South East England to Liverpool just to make ends meet.
Sharing a picture of beauty salon Lip Couture's shop front in city, she wrote on Instagram: "Make your mates WELL JEL this Christmas Book now. Spaces limited but available for @essexsmiles here in Liverpool @lipcoutureltd all teeth whitening done by me. calls us & treat yourself get the Hollywood smile.
Men welcome too #essexsmiles #lipcoutoure #liverpool #smilecouture (sic)"
The former 'EastEnders' star has been staying "here there and everywhere" in recent weeks after she was turfed out of her home and had her car taken off her because she failed to keep up with the payments.
A source said: "She's been busy viewing but hasn't found her new home. Obviously timing isn't great with it being so close to Christmas but she isn't rushing into anything and is staying with friends and family over the festive period. Danniella now has a whole new team around her after spending a lot of 2016 surrounded by toxic people."
Danniella hasn't had the best of luck recently as she appeared to be at death's door over the summer when she was struck down with septicaemia.
The blonde star spent weeks in hospital while doctors tried to get the infection, which can be fatal if not treated, under control with antibiotics but she was later informed she had no choice but to have all of her teeth ripped out after the bacteria spread to the roof of her mouth.
She said at the time when people were speculating she was pregnant: "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."
Her toothless look and prolonged hospital stay plunged the 'Celebrity Big Brother' star - who famously lost her septum in 2000 due her excessive use of cocaine - into deep depression and this in turn lead to her trying to overdose on tablets.
Danniella - who has son Kai, 20, and 13-year-old daughter Jody - said: "When you relapse and you take drugs, you don't see that [leaving the kids]. All you see is selfishness and a way out. So you carry on taking more drugs because you're so low on such a comedown that you just think you want to kill yourself. I didn't overdose on cocaine. I was just taking tablets orally."
This wasn't the first time Danniella has relapsed though, as she previously fell off the wagon in 2014 when life got tough.
