Former ‘EastEnders’ star Danniella Westbrook has quit Twitter, after receiving death threats and “constant abuse” on the social networking site.

The actress hasn’t exactly had it easy in recent weeks, and earlier this month it was revealed that she’s currently homeless and living in sheltered accommodation.

Daniella first hit the headlines again earlier this year, when she admitted to relapsing after 12 years of being clean.

The star tweeted: “The person who's tweeting me telling me to go & o.d and do my kids a favour this Christmas. Please stop its really evil at this time.”

“Coming off of Twitter as the constant abuse & people wishing me dead is tipping me over the edge. Have a good Christmas all,” she later added.

Last week, Danniella was forced to deny that she’d been on a spending spree, after she was pictured with a number of shopping bags, while out in Brentwood with her ex-fiancé Tom Richards.

It’s rumoured that she could be heading into the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house in January, along with celebs such as Katie Hopkins and Calum Best.
