Former EastEnders actress Danniella Westbrook has revealed she has lost her home and is currently living in sheltered accommodation.
The 41-year-old, who has had a particularly difficult year, made the shocking revelation via Twitter in order to stop someone selling the information to a magazine.
She wrote: "It's been a tuff year for me and its with great regret I have 2 admit , I've lost my home an I'm living in sheltered housing waiting 2b housed."

Danniella has been forced to move into temporary accommodation while she waits for local authority assistance to obtain a property as she can no longer afford to live in her house in Kent, South East England.
The star who split from husband Kevin Jenkins after 12 years of marriage in January has an 18-year-old son, Kai, with former partner Robert Fernandez and a 13-year-old daughter, Jody, with Kevin.
Despite the blow she is trying to stay positive.

She also posted: "I have the love of my kids & afew good friends (sic)."
The actress - who underwent two stints in rehab in 2000 to treat cocaine addiction - has faced a challenging year since splitting from Kevin.
She is said to have pawned her wedding rings after running out of money and confessed she had relapsed and started using cocaine again in October after suffering a miscarriage over the summer.
Danniella also fell victim to a string of robberies at her former home in Essex and feared her car had been stolen during the third break in before discovering it had being repossessed over missing payments.
The star also split from her toy boy beau, Tom Richards, 24, last month following a string of explosive rows.
