Danniella Westbrook has shared a fresh-faced selfie as she got ready to hit an AA meeting, after she admitted she had relapsed.
The 47-year-old opened up last month and bravely revealed she had relapsed during her battle with sobriety and drug addiction, but was getting the help she needed.
And she's sticking to her word, as she shared a picture with fans which saw her looking glowing in an all-red outfit.
The former Celebrity Big Brother star got addicted to drugs after shooting to stardom at the age of 14 as Sam Mitchell on EastEnders.
She has struggled with drugs ever since, but previously declared that she was quitting champagne and cocaine as she was "totally over it".
Danniella said: "I'm done with the drinking, the occasional packet and night out."
She explained she "hadn't hit rock bottom this time", explaining: "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 has wasted £250,000 on cocaine and was so deeply addicted that she took 5g a day while pregnant with her son Kai, and even used the drug while in labour.
Her drug abuse caused her septum to fall out, meaning she was left with what looked like one large nostril, as the cartilage in the centre of the nose had worn away.
She managed to keep away from drugs for a successful 14 years but sadly relapsed in 2014, before falling off her plan for sobriety again in 2017 and 2019.
However when she feared that one more like would kill her she got clean.
Recently, Danniella found herself in hospital after a sinus infection left doctors fearing potential damage to her brain.
She was transferred to intensive care before being moved to palliative care so doctors could try and make sure she didn't get so ill again.
A source told us: "She is out of ICU now. She is being seen by a cancer palliative specialist over the next few days to discuss options and surgery to stop this from happening again.
"We hope she can be well soon and out of hospital very soon as it's her birthday next week. She's a fighter, that's for sure."
