“Being part of this fellowship [in rehab] and being show how to help myself and others is just a real gift.
“So thank you all who stood by me and loved me when I was too sick to do that for myself for years and to those of you who are new in my life.

Earlier this month, it was revealed Danniella was looking for love on Tinder under the name Dolly.
A profile reported to belong to the 45-year-old star has been spotted by another user of the dating app, with the former EastEnders actress sharing a series of sexy selfies in the hopes of luring in a match.
One photo shows the mother-of-two with a Snapchat dog filter over her face, with Danniella’s enviable figure on full display in another impressive bikini snap.
Although her main name on the app reads ‘Dolly’, Danniella comes clean about her true identity in her profile bio.
She also confesses that she hates popular chicken chain Nandos – and would rather her matches had hair.
