Danniella Westbrook has never been one to keep anything close to her chest and this week she has stunned her fans by revealing a very intimate secret.

The actress and CBB star, who is currently holed up in Spain as she undergoes therapy at a rehab facility, was poking around what looked like a tourist shop when she came across a display of patterned tiles that had initials on them.

Above the alphabetised arrangement some letters had been selected that spelt out the word Lenny.

While many of us would immediately think of Lenny Bennett or Lenny the Lion, the spelt-out name meant much more to Danniella.

In an Instagram post she revealed that the name Lenny had sparked some sad memories as it would have been the name of the baby she miscarried last year.

“Of all the names they choose this one to use … was gonna be my babies name #sadWhenISawIt,” she wrote. [sic]

But last month, she revealed, once she had checked into rehab, that one of the tough times in her life was losing a baby.
