Loose Women viewers were left wondering where Danniella Westbrook was after the former EastEnders star failed to make an appearance during Friday's episode. The ITV daytime show had previously revealed that Danniella was due to be on the panel to chat about her tragic miscarriage. At the end of Thursday's show, Andrea McClean told viewers: "Tomorrow Danniella Westbrook joins up with the latest heartbreak in her life. She's sadly lost her baby." However, when Loose Women began, the star's name was not mentioned.

After viewers took to Twitter to ask where Danniella was, the TV star responded, explaining that she was still feeling ill and that the interview was pre-recorded. She said: "It was pre-recorded actually and a medic was called as I'm still poorly!"
Earlier in the week, Danniella opened up about her devastating miscarriage on social media. The star, who also revealed that she had broken up with fiancé Alan Thomason, wrote: "Hurting from my loss. The hotel wasn't the only thing he destroyed that day. I never knew him at all! Walking away. #EnoughIsEnough #catfish."
Daniella recently split from Alan Thomason
The actress has made no secret of how excited she was to be expecting her third child. Earlier this month, she appeared on Lorraine to talk about her romance with Alan - who is nine years her junior - and their unborn baby. "I'm great actually, really good, fantastic," she told her host. "I don't know if I'm having two because I'm huge. I'm only five weeks and I'm huge. It may well be twins but I don't have another scan for four or five weeks. Life is looking up, life is fun and it's good. I'm just in a better place." Of her partner, she added: "I found the man who can tame me. I don't argue with him, I listen. I've found the One."
