Danniella has struggled with drug addiction for several years, and recently said she hasn’t spoken to her 17-year-old daughter Jody - whom she has with her former husband Kevin Jenkins - in three years, as she’s been forced to deal with her addictions and an online stalker.
But after being diagnosed with womb cancer, Danniella says she wants to get back in touch with Jody, especially as she doesn't know what her long-term prognosis is.
She said: "Jody is with her dad and that's just a whole different issue because of different things but the stalker did play a huge part in that for her own safety. I haven't spoken to Jody for three years.
"She's 17, she's gorgeous. Look, it's very difficult, especially since I've been ill.
"Jody is doing her life and she's doing very well, she's done brilliantly at school and now she's in college and she's doing great, and her dad is a great dad and he's doing what's best for her, right now.
"It's probably a safer and much better environment for her whilst I've got all this stuff going on, with trials and different things and being ill, she should be there right now."
