Danniella Westbrook teases new relationship as she cuddles ex-prisoner in bed

Danniella Westbrook seemed to hint at a new romance with bareknuckle boxer Ben Hatchett, but she later claimed she'd made a mistake.

The 49-year-old actress posted a video showing her lying in bed with 33-year-old Ben, an ex-convict, just weeks after confirming her reconciliation with her jailbird fiancé David, 29.

In the video, ex-EastEnders star Danniella cheerfully exclaimed: “Guess what, do you want to know a secret?”

She was then seen turning the camera towards Ben, who chuckled and responded “The cats out the bag.”

The soap star chimed in: “It’s official.”

Danniella subsequently posted another video, insisting it was an old clip from “years ago” and that she believed she was sending it solely to him, emphasising that they were merely friends.

The London native was previously engaged to David, who is currently incarcerated.

However, it seemed for a moment Danniella had started a new romance with Ben, who reportedly served time at Broadmoor Hospital, which has hosted notorious criminals like children-killer Ian Brady.

Ben faced convictions for knife-related offences as a teen and was later transferred to Broadmoor after attempting to escape from prison at the age of 21.

Following some years, the convicted boxer was reportedly relocated to another high-security facility at Ashworth Hospital, situated near Liverpool.

However, in 2020, Ben was released and has since made a positive transformation in his life, pursuing a career as a boxer and hosting a thriving YouTube podcast titled Let's Be Real.

He formerly had a romantic involvement with Black Sheep actress Danielle Mason, who is EastEnders actress Jessie Wallace's half-sister.

Ben and Danielle’s friendship began after he invited her to be a guest on his podcast, with their initial date taking place at Broadmoor.

Danniella recently informed her social media followers that she had reunited with her on-again, off-again partner David, just a month ago, as he readied himself for release from prison.

The soap star has recently revealed that she had been"cut out" of her daughter's life .

Danniella is a mother-of-two to Kai, 26, who she shares with ex-boyfriend Robert Fernandez and daughter Jodie, whose dad is Danniella’s former husband, millionaire businessman Kevin Jenkins.

Daily Star has contacted Daniella's representative for comment.
