Danniella Westbrook has updated fans on how well she’s doing at rehab after checking in to beat her addiction to cocaine.
The former EastEnders star took to Twitter to say how "amazing" her treatment was after being sent on the 10-week programme by her long-time pal Jeremy Kyle.
Danniella, 45, broke down on the ITV chat show after admitting she was desperate to break her long-running drug addiction, which was so bad it destroyed the septum in her nose.
She explained that she’s been "learning so much" and had become stronger while working her way through the intensive 12-step programme in a final attempt to help get her clean again.
She wrote on Twitter on Wednesday evening: "Amazing day in treatment.
"I’m seriously learning so much about this three fold illness, lectures therapy workshops group therapy everyday I’m stronger happier and more knowledgeable.
"Will go to bed lighter and happier tonight. Sending you all blessings #12steps"
At the beginning of February, Danniella revealed she’d agreed to undergo treatment on the advice of Jeremy Kyle.
In a post on Twitter , the actress confirmed she’s started 10 weeks of intensive treatment to help her get clean again.
She wrote: "The first day on a 10 week program which will change my life make me strong and give me the tools too never feel the way I’ve felt the last four years…
"I’m never looking back…
And she said it was Jeremy who helped her make the decision to go back into treatment.
She said she was looking forward to getting her drug free life back: "For those of you asking my good mate Jezza had me on his show which is being aired in the morning & has kindly sent me 2 rehab for 3 months."
Danniella has spent years battling drug addiction and famously took so much cocaine part of her nose collapsed.
She spent many years clean before relapsing again and put her recent troubles down to a battle with osteoporosis, which made her face crumble.
The former soap star has undergone several surgeries to correct the damage, including having part of a rib inserted into her face to replace her crumbling cheekbone.
