Danniella Westbrook’s had a tough time lately.

She got fired from Hollyoaks for breaching her contract, and around the same time her toyboy ex got arrested after allegedly assaulting and harassing her. Plus Danniella – a former cocaine addict – admitted to relapsing.


So when Celebrity Big Brother offered her £200,000 she was hoping the money would help her get back on her feet.

But after meeting with CBB producers to finalise details, they deemed her ‘unfit’ to star on the Channel 5 show because of her erratic behaviour.

A source told The Sun: “The producers were desperate to get Danniella on the show because, let’s face it, she’d make great TV.

“She was invited to meet them and alarm bells started ringing straight away. She was incredibly incoherent.”

So Danniella, 41, won’t be appearing on CBB, but she did recently tweet about working on a film called Requiem.
