The former EastEnders star revealed that she has opened a bar in Spain, where she is now living.

The women are being horrible to Danniella Westbrook, not letting her speak, tearing her down.

But panellist Jane Moore didn't seem impressed with her decision.

Danniella, who has struggled with a drug addiction most of her life, told the panellists: "I've just opened a bar in Spain with a friend of mine."

Jane, 54, interrupted: "You've opened a bar!?

"Isn't that like being on a diet and opening a cake shop?"

Laughing it off Danniella said: "But I'm better on the other side of the bar. I'm a people person."

Nadia Sawalha added: "It's intoxicating being in an environment where other people are drinking or doing drugs."

Jane then went on to ask the star: "How many times are we going to see you saying, 'I'm recovering, I'm doing well'?"

But Danniella fired back: "I will always be an addict, that's me."
