Danniella Westbrook to undergo another face transformation surgery ahead of 50th birthday

Danniella Westbrook has revealed that she is set to undergo another face transformation surgery ahead of her 50th birthday.

The 49 year old former EastEnders star, who will celebrate her 50th later this year in November, explained that she is going to fly to Turkey for the procedure to transform ready for a new decade.

She admitted that she feels "nervous" ahead of the surgery, but that she had waited five or six years for it, and that it is "about time".

Danniella has had a number of reconstructive face surgeries, after her nose collapsed years ago following years of cocaine abuse.

The former actress discussed her plans for new surgery with The Sun at the Rise of the Footsoldier premiere at Leicester Square on Tuesday night.

She said: "I'm off to Turkey at the weekend.

"I'm not feeling too bad. A bit nervous but I’m excited because it’s been five or six years of waiting now. It’s about time."

In another bid to transform herself ahead of her milestone 50th birthday, Danniella said that she had hired a personal trainer to get her in the "best shape of my life" as she said it was making her "excited about life".

Danniella is clearly back on fighting form after being rushed to hospital in an ambulance in early December, as she posted a video gulping down gas and air with a mask to her face, whilst paramedics could be heard speaking in the background.

The star claimed to be suffering from "septics, Strep A and constant temperature off 39.8," as she claimed that doctors told her she could have suffered a heart attack if she had waited another day before seeking medical help.

In a later post on Instagram, Danniella wrote: "Huge thank you to Whipps Cross and the NHS who have managed to get me stabilised.

"They informed me if I had left it until the morning I would have had a heart attack.

"The pressure on my chest was so bad."

Prior to being rushed to hospital, Danniella revealed that she had suffered a number of blackouts, "passing out and occasionally having seizures," admitting that it was "scaring the hell outta me".

She showed her vulnerable side as she said she "kept crying" and "wanted her mum," as she mentioned her age of 49.

Danniella rose to fame when she played the original Sam Mitchell, Peggy Mitchell's daughter, in EastEnders, before the role was taken over by Kim Louise Medcalf in 2002.

On 1 Feb, Daniella shared a snap of her brand new hairstyle, after she flew to Ireland to get it done, as she said: "I felt like Cinderella when I arrived and left ready to meet my Prince Charming."
