Danniella Westbrook back in hospital as she shares emotional message with fans before operation

DANNIELLA Westbrook revealed she's back in hospital to undergo an operation just weeks after a sinus infection left her in intensive care.

The actress, 47, was previously discharged ahead of her birthday, and in the days that followed she shared a number of pictures on social media looking better than ever.

However, she is now back at Aintree University Hospital where she is waiting to go into theatre.

Danniella shared a selfie in her gown and wrote: "Feel so overwhelmed and full of hope and gratitude. Huge thanks to the most amazing surgeons and @nhs team x."

Posting the same picture on her Instagram Story, she added Christina Aguilera's anthem Fighter.

During her last hospital stay Danniella was told she might need surgery to prevent a repeat of the infection.

It came after antibiotics failed to beat it, leaving her "really poorly".

Doctors worried the infection could spread to "her brain", with a pal telling us: "Experts were concerned infected mucus could track back to her brain, but she is being well cared for in hospital and is on the mend."

Danniella, who played Sam Mitchell in EastEnders, sparked further concern when she posted a message to her children and mum.

She said "tomorrow is not promised" and "I love you", tagging in son Kai, daughter Jodie and her mother Susan.

The star shared the message on Instagram to the sound of How Long Will I Love You by Ellie Goulding.

It read: "Tell someone you love them today. Because tomorrow is not promised. To my family and my friends, I love you."
