Danniella, who currently stars in 'Hollyoaks', will talk about how her faith helped save her and select some of her favourite hymns for the show, 'Songs Of Praise: Fame And Faith', the newspaper said.

The star, who became a born-again Christian after moving to the US, has previously said: "Gucci and Prada used to be my God.

"Now I have given my life to the Lord. If you had told me two years ago that I was going to be Christian, I would have laughed. I used to tell people, 'I'm way past saving.'

"But the first time I came to this church, I felt something so spiritual and amazing that I wanted to cry."
