Danniella Westbrook shares rare snap of her brother and best friend in fresh-faced throwback

DANNIELLA Westbrook looked almost unrecognisable in a throwback photo with her brother and a friend.

The 48-year-old took a trip down memory lane with the fresh-faced snap – taken in Gozo, Malta – telling fans she was "about the same age" as her daughter Jodie, 20, when it was taken.

She wrote: "The original Chipie crew in Gozo. My brother Justin Drew, me and my all time life long buddy and the friend who is my family, the one and only Legs aka @stewartbowles."

Danniella's followers loved the blast from the past, with one writing: "Old skool Dan 😍." Another commented: "Great photo!"

It's been a tough few weeks for actress Danniella, after she made the brave confession that she'd suffered a relapse amid her cocaine addiction battle.

The former EastEnders star insisted that, despite the setback, she is determined to be drug free and said that she's "done" with that lifestyle.

She said: "I’m totally over it. I’m done with the drinking, the occasional packet and night out.”

Luckily Danniella assured her supporters she hadn't hit "rock bottom", and added: "I’m lucky this time I’m not crawling in the rooms a snivelling skinny bag head.

"I was meant for more than this and this last few years f**king about has show me, that cocaine and champagne ain’t got the high I want."

Danniella – who rose to fame playing Sam Mitchell in the BBC soap – was also rushed to hospital after an infection turned nasty.

The Sun revealed how doctors feared the infection could spread to her brain, with a source telling us: "Danniella is really poorly. She ended up in ICU after antibiotics for a sinus infection didn't work.

"Experts were concerned infected mucus could track back to her brain, but she is being well cared for in hospital and is on the mend."
