It is looking like former EastEnders star Danniella Westbrook will not be having a very happy Christmas this year, after pictures emerged of her apparently homeless.
The snaps showed the actress in tears as she drags a suitcase around the streets of Liverpool.
This has prompted another EastEnders actor to reach out to her.
John Partridge grew closer to Danniella when they spent time together in the Celebrity Big Brother house, earlier this year.
John told The Sun: “I mean I love Danniella. It’s terrible to hear that and if Danniella sees this or reads this and she needs something then she should get in touch.
“I’m her friend, I’ve worked with her and I know her. I feel desperately desperately sorry for her.
“How do you help somebody? It’s so difficult to know the right thing to do but I want her to know if she needs anything then get in touch with me.
“She’s so vulnerable.”

It seems that a series of unfortunate events had led Danniella to default on rent payments, which led to her being cast out on the streets just before Christmas.
Her life took another unexpected turn just days later though, when she posted on social media: “Make your mates WELL JEL this Christmas Book now.Spaces limited by available for @essexsmiles here in Liverpool @lipcouturedltd all teeth whitening done by me. call us & treat yourself get the Hollywood smile. Men welcome too.”
It would seem that Danniella has woken with an entrepreneurial spirit and started a teeth whitening business.
A source told The Sun: “It’s a new start for Danniella and proves she’s not afraid of hard work to put food on the table.”
It was only last month that the CBB star appeared on This Morning and admitted that she had “spiralled into a depression”.
She had slipped into the darkness after a split from boyfriend George Arnold, following her time in the Celebrity Big Brother house.
She admitted: “I spiralled into a depression after Big Brother.
“I had the best time in there. I came out so excited to get back on my feet.
“This happened and I haven’t been able to work.
“This has spiralled me into a depression, and I split from my boyfriend too.”
Let’s hope that this festive period brings Danniella some good tidings and an opportunity to rebuild her life in the new year.
