Danniella Westbrook has begged bosses of 'Celebrity Big Brother' to take her back
Danniella Westbrook wants to return to the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house.
The former 'EastEnders' star has begged bosses of the reality TV show to "take her back" following her stint last year because it was the "best job" she's ever done.
Taking to her Instagram account on Monday (09.01.17) - six days after the series returned for another installment - the blonde star uploaded a photograph of her on the show in January alongside the caption: "Take me back cbb"
She then followed it up with: "The best job I've ever done xx #cbb (sic)."
The 43-year-old actress hasn't had the easiest year since she left the infamous abode as she appeared to be at death's door over the summer when she was struck down with septicaemia.
Danniella 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 Danniella - 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."
In the run up to Christmas, Danniella was also made homeless and her car was repossessed.
