Danniella Westbrook suffers miscarriage

Danniella Westbrook has posted heartbreaking messages on Twitter following the sad news that she has suffered a miscarriage


The former soap star only announced her pregnancy last month, just weeks after her boyfriend and cage fighter Tom Richards, 24, proposed.

Danniella Westbrook, 40, was taken to hospital on Friday night. Her representative told The Sun yesterday: ‘I can confirm she has had a miscarriage.’

Yesterday she took to Twitter to thank her fiancé:

Since then she’s tweeted:

She started dating Tom after splitting from her husband of 12 years, businessman Kevin Jenkins, in January.

Danniella shot to fame after playing Peggy Mitchell’s daughter Sam on EastEnders at the age of 16. She already has two children, Jodie, 12, and Kai, 17.

We’re sorry to hear this sad news – sending lots of love to both Danniella and Tom.
