Danniella Westbrook has furiously hit out at reports suggesting her face is “rotting away” following a botched surgery and years of drug abuse.
The former EastEnders star had apparently said that her left cheekbone is wasting away, meaning some days she wakes up with her face swollen whilst others days its “sunken”.
However, Danniella has taken to Twitter to clarify that this doesnt mean her face is “rotting” – and that its NOT been caused by her past drug use.
“what was the point of doing an interview today I said its not rotting away & its osteoporosis not drug use!” the 44-year-old tweeted on Thursday. “I ACTUALLY GIVE UP!!!”
It comes after Danniella alleged in the interview that her osteoporosis was caused by a botched op she had one a TV show in 2015, which she said had weakened the bones in her face and shoulder.
Apparently the mum-of-two has no left cheekbone and no gums on the top of her mouth, and wears a whole denture which sits on the roof of her mouth.
“I just dont look like myself any more,” Danniella told the Mirror Online. “Obviously Im going to age a lot faster anyway because of the drugs but I didnt need this as well.”
She also revealed that shes “drinking 12 pints of milk a day” to strengthen her bones in preparation for reconstructive surgery.
“Ive got to laugh or Ill cry but it makes me so unhappy,” the actress added.
Danniella – who took part in Celebrity Big Brother in 2016 – claimed that shes become anxious about her looks too, so much so that shell scratch her arms compulsively until they bleed.
“It has really affected my whole life, I couldnt work the year I came out of Big Brother, shes revealed. “I couldnt work at all, it makes me nervous and Im scratching. I get really bad anxiety.
“Some days I wake up and Im so swollen and other days it can look really sunken.
“Its getting weaker and weaker and some days the pain is unbelievable.”
Now Danniella is hoping to have a metal plate put in if she can improve her bone density but has said: “They can start to rebuild it but Ill never look the same and it could make me look not very nice, even worse than I look now.”
