Danniella Westbrook has managed to land herself a role in an action film
Danniella Westbrook has reportedly bagged herself a role in a new film.
The 'Celebrity Big Brother' star was desperate to revive her acting career after she fell off the wagon late last year and it finally looks like things are working in her favour as she's managed to snap up a part in a forthcoming action blockbuster.
A source told The Sun Online: "Danniella is really excited to be working on this project and can't wait to get stuck in. It's a brand new action film and if she makes a good job of it the role could lead to other opportunities."
The 43-year-old actress had a rough year throughout 2016 as she appeared to be at death's door over the summer when she was struck down with septicaemia.
She was forced to have her teeth ripped out so that doctors could treat the condition - also known as blood poisoning - and that plunged her deeper into depression.
And things went from bad to worse towards the end of the year as in the run up to Christmas, Danniella was also made homeless and her car was repossessed.
She recently said: "Everything was going so well. It was supposed to be my year, but then the teeth implants didn't take and I became so low. I'm an addict and the wheels fell off. I was dabbing cocaine around my mouth and rubbing it in to numb the pain. I was hospitalised, I could have died. I had three operations in seven weeks."
Danniella is now planning to sue the makers of 'Celebrity Botched Up Bodies', who carried out her initial dental work, for £750,000 in order to cover her loss of earnings.
She said: "I'm suing the makers of 'Celebrity Botched Up Bodies' for £750,000 to cover lost earnings. I've had sleepless nights and crying about the state my teeth are in. Sometimes you want to go out for dinner and have a great big bit of steak but I can't do that - I'll probably bite in to it and [the implant] will be stuck in the meat."
