Danniella Westbrook

Danniella Westbrook shot to fame aged just 15 when she landed the role of Sam Mitchell in the BBC soap EastEnders. But her battle with cocaine addiction led to her being dropped from the show in very public circumstances. She's been clean now for over 12 years and is rebuilding her life. Danniella has recently published her second autobiography “Faith, Hope and Clarity” in which she talks frankly about her battles with cocaine addiction and bi-polar disorder and how she's found comfort and direction in her new Christian faith.
