Danniella Westbrook categorically denied that she was pregnant on Good Morning Britain on Monday.
With rumours swirling that the 43-year-old former EastEnders actress was expecting her third child, host Jeremy Kyle pointedly asked if is she was expecting, to which she replied: “Not the last time I looked, no.”
Danniella, who was on the show to talk about recovery from her well-publicised addiction to cocaine and recent stint in rehab, also added that she was “just fat at the moment because I’m happy”.

But today a so-called friend has told The Mirror that she IS expecting and is “so happy just to have it out in the open now – so many people have been whispering about it”.
The source added: “She felt like she was ready to let people know and stop being careful about who sees the bump.”
And judging by accompanying photos published in the article, that certainly seemed to be the case.
Pictured out shopping with fiancé Alan Thomason, 34, in Palma, Majorca earlier this week, the Essex girl had a noticeably rounded tum.
And, tellingly, one image features her picking up a pair of red-and-white striped baby swimming trunks to show her toyboy.
Although Danniella is yet to comment on today’s story, if true, this will be her third child – and Alan’s first.
She is already mum to Kai, 21, her son with ex-boyfriend Robert Fernandez, and Jodie, 15, her daughter with second husband, Kevin Jenkins.
Danniella’s relationship with Alan has been something of a whirlwind.
The pair only met earlier this summer and were pictured together for the first time earlier this month, while on holiday in Spain.
She announced on Twitter that she was the “happiest she’d ever been in her life” and soon added ‘fiancée’ to her biog.
However, it hasn’t all been plain sailing, as Alan’s ex-fiancée, Charlene Whyment told a newspaper that Alan got engaged to Danniella without dumping her first.
Charelene claimed Alan had proposed to her in July 2017 in after they were together for four years, before dumping her for Danniella.
In response, Danniella tweeted: “So heartbroken she sold a story enjoy your ££ cos I’m enjoying ur ex. Oh & ur invites in the post.” [sic]
Come on Dannii, put us all out of our misery!
