Former EastEnders star Danniella Westbrook has been forced to visit hospital amid an unknown health scare following her recent reported split from her jailed fiancé.

The actress, 48, who is best known for playing Sam Mitchell in the BBC soap, took to Instagram to share with her 102,000 followers that she was back in hospital.

Danniella could be seen wearing a blue disposable face mask below her elaborate fluffy faux eyelashes. Despite the health scare, the star looked in good spirits as she glared at the camera with wide eyes.

In another clip, also posted to her Instagram, she filmed the hospital's waiting room at University College London Hospital.

On the clip she used a GIF which read "Vibe check".

Danniella failed to state the reason for her hospital visit but it comes after she shared a similar style post in June.

Taking to her Instagram once more, the actress uploaded a photo of herself in hospital which she captioned: "Another day another hospital."

In a follow-up post, which showed the actress walking down an empty corridor, filmed in black and white, she described the empty corridor as "scary" and wrote "the only person in the whole corridor" along with a ghost emoji.

Again she failed to explain her reason for being in hospital but it had come weeks after the soap star was rushed to hospital with bloodstream infection septicaemia.

The bout of sepsis saw Danniella bedridden for several days as she recovered from the illness.

A rep for the star told The Sun at the time: "Danniella suffered a sudden health shock.

"Thankfully the issue was caught early and dealt with by medical professionals. Danniella has been released from hospital and is home recovering with the support of close family.

"We are grateful that Danniella hasn’t suffered from any major risks.

"Danniella appreciates everyone’s immediate support and we will be sure to issue updates on her ongoing recovery accordingly."

Now, her latest hospital visit comes just days after the news broke that she had reportedly split from fiancé David.

The pair had been together for six years and had only announced their engagement a few months ago before allegedly splitting in August.

Danniella and her mystery man, 28, had been living in Spain together. The couple are said to have had a whirlwind of a romance, breaking up and getting back together in an on again, off again relationship.

Speaking about their recent break up, a source said the “pressures of prison” got to Danniella.

“Danniella and her prison boyfriend David have unfortunately decided to part ways after a really long and tough relationship,” they told The Sun.

The source continued: "The pressures of him in prison and being unable to see Danniella properly meant that their relationship was extremely unstable.

"It’s been so difficult for Danniella but she’s decided to do what’s best for herself.

"She really did love him, she thought he was the one.”
