Talking about the troubled star and how things were for them when they first started EastEnders when they were in their early 20s, Patsy, 44, said: “Danniella Westbrook is so sweet.

“We all went through our own struggles.

“It was intense.”

It wasn’t long before Danniella’s manager, who has taken over her social media while Danniella’s in rehab, replied to the comments saying: “I’m with Danni now at visiting and she is touched and appreciates your support and send her love @loosewomen @patsypalmerx.”

Danniella, who has battled a drug addiction for much of her life, announced last month that she would be heading back to rehab.
