DANNIELLA Westbrook looked almost unrecognisable in a throwback photo with her brother and a friend.

The 48-year-old took a trip down memory lane with the fresh-faced snap - taken in Gozo, Malta - telling fans she was ...about the same age... as her daughter Jodie, 20, when it was taken.

It's been a tough few weeks for actress Danniella, after she made the brave confession that she'd suffered a relapse amid her cocaine addiction battle.

The former EastEnders star insisted that, despite the setback, she is determined to be drug free and said that she's ...done... with that lifestyle.

She said: ...I’m totally over it. I’m done with the drinking, the occasional packet and night out.”

Luckily Danniella assured her supporters she hadn't hit ...rock bottom..., and added: ...I’m lucky this time I’m not crawling in the rooms a snivelling skinny bag head.
