Former EastEnders star Danniella Westbrook finished in fifth place in tonight’s (5 February) Celebrity Big Brother final.
Speaking to presenter Emma Willis she said: “I’m so happy! It’s changed my life; it’s been an amazing experience. I wanted to make my kids proud of me.”
Danniella surprisingly didn’t cite Stephanie when asked which housemate had been the most difficult to live with, “Everyone’s expecting me to say Stephanie but it was probably David. He was so upbeat all the time and told me so many stories. I never knew when he was being serious.”
“For me Steph’s my winner, she’s grown up in front of the nation. I know what it’s like to fall apart in front of the nation, she is full of talent and I didn’t want her to throw away this opportunity. Don’t get me wrong, she drove me crackers!” – Danniella on her sometimes fraught relationship with Stephanie
She added of Stephanie’s relationship with Jeremy: “We didn’t know she had such a terrible time with her ex. Jeremy is the nicest geezer you could meet, they are a lovely couple.”
Danniella denied that Gemma Collins had influenced her behaviour in the house noting “She’s my mate and I won’t have a bad word said about her. I love her to bits.”
