Danniella Westbrook has given up drugs and ditched all medication as she reveals she feels “strong” without a man after nearly a month spent in rehab.

The troubled star, who last year had a miscarriage and split from her toyboy lover George Arnold, said she’s been working on her issues since checking in to a private clinic in Marbella, Spain.

“I’ve been here three and a half weeks – my head is straight, I’m not on any medication, I’m not taking any drugs and I’ve worked loads on myself,” she said in a video.

“All the stuff that I felt I got left with at the end of last year I’m dealing with and I feel strong, I feel really strong.”

The ex-EastEnder, who publicly relapsed and started using cocaine again last year before being confronted by her son Kai on national television, added to Sun Online that she was missing her kids but was “happy to be alone and on my own”.

“I’m looking forward to getting back to work and all the exciting things I’ve got coming up,” she went on.

“I’m in a wonderful place and I’m truly blessed again but thank you one and all for everything.”

The private clinic where Danniella is staying caters for a range of mental health issues, from depression to sex addiction, and prides itself on providing a quiet, discreet place for celebrities to overcome their demons.

Along with healthy, nurishing meals and one-to-one therapy, Danniella may well be taking advantage of the clinic’s more fun activities, including paragliding, yoga and interacting with animals.

The brave actress, who in the past has spoken of her bi-polar disorder, has experienced more than her fair share of heartbreak in the last year or so.

Along with her drug relapse, her miscarriage and the split from George, Danniella was almost made homeless and said she made nine attempts to kill herself.

Things became so bad for the star that she began to self-harm after finding herself stuck in a shocking downward spiral that didn’t seem to have an ending.

“I walked myself into hospital. I was harming myself. Slicing my face and cutting off chunks off my own hair,” she explained to Now magazine back in January.

“My recovery is hour by hour. But it’s rubbish, I rent a flat in Liverpool and I’m moving to a cottage soon. I don’t have loads of money, but I’m not broke and I don’t have debt.”
