Danniella Westbrook unveils new face at glamorous awards bash following surgery to fix ‘rotted’ cheeks

Danniella Westbrook was one of the stars turning on the glamour at last night’s Essex TV Awards.

The former EastEnders actress was given a big reason to smile as she stepped out at her first big showbiz event since undergoing reconstructive surgery on her face last month.

Danniella, 45, was looking on top form as she hit the red carpet in a chic black suit and towering stilettos.

Danniella wore her hair slicked back off her face to show off her striking make-up with heavily contoured cheeks.

Just weeks ago Danniella underwent painful surgery after osteoporosis rotted away her cheekbones and gums.

She previously revealed how botched surgery in 2015 had left her with decaying bones.

But last month she began the long road to recovery as doctors worked to fix her crumbling face.

Speaking after her op in November, she told fans: "Feeling wiped out after this morning face swollen but at last the process has started.

"Not looking forward to the bone replacement but I’m on the right road. Thanks for all your messages x"

Danniella told the Mirror how she had to drink twelve pints of milk a day to strengthen her bones so that a part of her skull can be made into a plate for her face.

She spoke of her anger that critics assume her problems are down to her past addiction to cocaine.

But Danniella claims that her problems began after a botched procedure in 2015 that left her hospitalised and she contracted septicemia.

"I did nearly die, I had two lots of IV drips in each side and then they took all my teeth out again and gave me this denture, which has broken my heart because I didn’t need all of my teeth out in the first place," she said.
