Former 'EastEnders' actress Danniella Westbrook has revealed she is living in sheltered accommodation after losing her home.

It's believed the 41-year-old took to Twitter to confirm she is homeless in a bid to stop someone selling the information to a magazine.

She tweeted: “It's been a tuff year for me &its with great regret I have 2 admit , I've lost my home an I'm living in sheltered housing waiting 2b housed.”

It's been a difficult year for the actress who split from her husband of 12 years, Kevin Jenkins, in January.

Danniella, who has a 13-year-old daughter with Kevin and an 18-year-old son, Kai, with her former partner Robert Fernandez, says she is trying to remain positive after being forced to move out of her home in Kent.

She also posted: "I have the love of my kids & afew good friends (sic)."

As well as splitting with her husband, Danniella was left heartbroken after suffering a miscarriage and also admitted she had started taking cocaine again in October after undergoing two stints in rehab back in 2000 to treat her addiction.

Her Essex home was also broken into and her car repossessed before she split with her 24-year-old fiancé, Tom Richards.

The couple called off their wedding last month after a series of public rows.
