Obama: We Don't Need To Re Fight Healthcare Battle

Danniella Westbrook says she initially turned to drugs to help her cope with her cancer diagnosis.

The actress is battling womb cancer and admitted that she fears she is going to die like her friend and Big Brother star Jade Goody.

The 44-year-old said she collapsed in pain while in the UK and was taken to hospital by Kerry Katona, and it was when she flew to Spain that she had the devastating news.

She admits she turned to cocaine at first because she wanted to ‘numb everything and get drunk’, but now she is focused on fighting the disease.

‘After what happened with Jade I was frightened to talk to anyone about my cancer at first. She was my friend and what happened was so awful,’ she told The Mirror.

‘I’ve tried to commit suicide before but getting this diagnosis has made me realise I don’t want to die.

Jade died at the age of 27 in 2009 after battling cervical cancer.

However Danniella says she’s ‘hopeful’ for the future as doctors have said they believe the cancer is ‘containable’.

She will undergo a full hysterectomy in three weeks’ time.

Danniella, who is best known for playing Sam Mitchell in EastEnders, previously sparked concern among fans after posting a string of messages referring to fighting cancer.
