Even when she was at the top of her fame as a star of East Enders, behind the scenes Danniella was tearing her life apart. For a while she was the nation's most famous drug addict. This is her story of recovery from the despair of addiction, told with total emotional honesty and courage.
The lowest of the low points came when she called to beg social services to take her son into care. Totally alone, shoplifting food to survive and still using cocaine, Danniella knew she had to do something. Written with complete frankness, this is the whole story, from the first time she took coke, as a 14 year old, to the horror and shame of her ruined nose, and the near collapse of her relationship with the man who loved her. As her addiction took over her life she lost her friends, family, career and her looks, but when it came to her son, she knew enough was enough. Inspiring and powerful, this is an intensely personal story of the fight back from the edge of death.
