'Devastated' EastEnders star Danniella Westbrook splits from prison fiancé

EastEnders star Danniella Westbrook has reportedly split from her fiancé.

The actress, known for her role as Sam Mitchell in the BBC One soap, was in a relationship with David – who’s currently spending time behind bars – for six years.

According to a source from The Sun, Daniella has said that ending the relationship is the best thing for her, and now plans to focus more on her career.

‘Danniella is devastated as she’s really close with David’s family and they have been in an on and off relationship since meeting in Marbella 2016. She feels as though she has done the right for both of them although she is heartbroken’, they told the publication.

‘Danniella is going to take time to focus on herself, her surgery and her career.’

Metro.co.uk has contacted Danniella’s representative for a comment.

Danniella has been very open and honest about the surgery she’s currently undergoing, and recently appeared on ITV’s This Morning to speak about how her past drug addiction has impacted her life today.

‘I’m happy to be alive after everything I’ve put myself through’, she told presenters Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary.

‘I’m waiting to be a nanny, hopefully. I’m just so happy with this chapter that I’m in. I’m just happy with who I am and I needed to learn that.’

Danniella also explained how she supports others with addiction issues, by guiding them to their nearest meetings and sometimes getting in contact with those leading them on their behalf. 

The soap star then went on to give a sweet response to Alison quizzing her on her love life.
