“I do need help. I don’t have a choice,” she tells the paper. “I will always be an addict.

“People say that drugs bring out your best points but they don’t.

“It highlights everything that is wrong with you and everything that you are feeling.

“Cocaine is a very lonely drug. You can’t have a relationship when you are 100 per cent a cocaine addict, which I was before.

“How long would it have been before I became that person again?

“I don’t think there is one drug that makes you happy and confident. It just made me feel s*** about myself.”

A decade ago, Danniella had surgery to rebuild her nose after cocaine use destroyed her septum.

On Sunday. Danniella admitted to using cocaine following her split from her boyfriend, revealing that on one occasion, she slept with her drug dealer.
