Danniella Westbrook And Fiancé Tom Richards Split: Former 'EastEnders' Actress Says She's Enjoying 'Single Life' On Twitter

After a turbulent 2014, Danniella Westbrook has announced on Twitter that she’s called off her forthcoming wedding to her toyboy fiancé, Tom Richards.


Daniella and Tom made the headlines earlier this year when they announced that they were planning to tie the knot, just months after she split from her husband of 12 years.

However, it seems the former ‘EastEnders’ actress has now chosen to call time on their relationship, tweeting - in a post that has since been deleted - on Sunday night that she was enjoying the “single life”.

While it sounds like Danniella is determined not to let the split get her down, the same can’t be said for Tom, who has vowed to win his ex back on his Twitter page.

After confirming the news of their split, he has been posting a string of emotional messages on Twitter, begging for “something good” to happen and asking: “When will all this end?”

The couple’s short relationship was blighted with troubles, particularly after it was reported that Danniella had relapsed and begun using cocaine again after 12 years clean, following a difficult few months that saw her suffer a miscarriage and have her house burgled.

Tom later admitted to the press that he had taken the class-A drug with Danniella, after her announcement that she was once again seeking professional help to tackle her addiction demons.
