Daniella Westbrook - Daniella Westbrook Relapses In Cocaine Battle
Troubled British actress Daniella Westbrook has relapsed in her fight against cocaine addiction.
The former EastEnders star, who shocked fans in 2000 when a photograph emerged showing she had lost the septum in her nose due to years of drug abuse, has confessed to snorting cocaine this year (14).
She blames her relapse on a one-night stand in Majorca, Spain in April (14), while she was attempting to overcome her split from fiance Tom Richards.
Westbrook, who was clean for 12 years, tells British newspaper The Sun on Sunday, "I have cheapened myself. I have cheapened who I am, but that is a direct example of what drugs and alcohol do... I was offered coke and I took it. The most frightening thing was I didn't think about it at all, I just f**king did it and that's probably more scary than planning it."
The actress admits she has used cocaine about half a dozen times since April (14).
She has since reunited with cage fighter Richards, who was arrested last week (ends15Aug14) following a heated argument at their home in Kent, England. He was later released without charge.
