Troubled actress Danniella Westbrook was recently spotted at Runcorn’s popular bingo hall called Club 2000. She played £1.99 games that gave jackpots of £300 each. She arrived at the hall that is located at Trident Retail Park with a friend. They have played at the hall before and they continued playing for more than two hours in all. During that time she tried her luck at the jackpots and also for the main prize of £600, although she did come in a bit late. The actress and her male friend came in at 7:50 pm, the game having gotten under way by then.

Other players at the bingo hall were delighted to see the 43-year-old actress and reality television personality in the flesh, saying that she was very warm and friendly with the people she encountered over there. She also took the time to allow people to take selfies with her. In fact, a few of the employees at the bingo hall joined the patrons to take photos along with the actress. After all, one doesn’t always get to see soap opera stars and other celebrities in bingo halls. Some of the other customers at the hall also said that her arrival created quite a sensation and added to the fun of playing bingo there that evening.
Danniella Westbrook’s Rise to Fame
Danniella Westbrook rose to fame thanks to her role in the BBC soap opera East Enders in which she starred as Sam Mitchell for different duration from the 1990s all the way up to 2010. She continued to be in the public eye thanks to her appearances on many reality shows including Dancing With The Stars, Celebrity Big Brother and also I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here.
The actress has been in the limelight for more than half of her life. But she has been in the news of late more on account of her personal and financial troubles and not because of professional reasons. She has always been infamous for her cocaine use (as her collapsed nasal septum will indicate). That has certainly threatened to derail her career from time to time. But it seems that her life has hit a new low now.
According to the latest reports, Danniella Westbrook has now lost her house and even her car. It is understood that her assets were repossessed just before Christmas. She was also photographed on the street in Liverpool, crying while pulling a suitcase behind her. Unfortunately, her recent attempt to get a regular job doing tooth whitening at a dental clinic hasn’t been successful as well. It’s possible because people feel uncomfortable looking at her face which still bears the marks of cocaine damage. Her battles with depression have also happened in the public domain. She was in the news recently for a suicide attempt in response to her partner leaving her.
Was Danniella Westbrook’s Visit to the Bingo Hall Planned?
It is quite possible that the actress planned the visit to the bingo hall. Probably to try and put her financial troubles behind her. Bingo is immensely popular in many parts of the world. But more so in the United Kingdom, and lots of people have won sizable amounts of money while playing here.
Danniella, unfortunately, didn’t win any money playing bingo that night. But she did ensure that other players had something to talk about! Besides, she clearly was having quite a good time that evening. In fact, there’s a good chance that she will make this a regular activity. Bingo is a great place to have fun and take a shot at the attractive cash prizes at the same time.
