Pregnant Danniella Westbrook was pictured smoking at a hotel bar recently, despite medical advice that states smoke can harm babies in the womb.

The ex-EastEnders star was spotted by an onlooker at the bar in Benidorm with a lit cigarette in her mouth as she sat chatting to toyboy fiance Alan Thomason and a couple of pals.

The eyewitness said Danniella was openly smoking, despite announcing last month that she was expecting her third child - her first with Alan.

Danniella, now 43, had reportedly sworn off fags, drugs and booze and was ready to focus on her baby, according to sources close to her.

But these pictures show Danniella couldn't quite kick the habit, despite overwhelming medical advice proving cigarette smoke can lead to increased risk of a smaller birth weight, premature birth and even stillbirth.

Just days after these photographs were taken, Danniella was on ITV's Lorraine show talking about how she never wanted to touch drugs again.

"I'm very grateful for what I've got in my life right now," she told Lorraine Kelly.

"To have a life considering what I put myself through is a blessing. I am an addict, mine is unfortunately drugs."

She went on: "I can, as a drug addict, never say never, but I know there's a lot more to life than picking up that rubbish. I've got my mum back in my life and my sister in law. I've got a few good friends who I'm close to so I'm very lucky.

"I'm sick to death of relapsing and people are sick to death of hearing it as well," she added.

Danniella struggled with substance abuse throughout her first two pregnancies with son Kai, now 20, and 16-year-old Jodie.

The bipolar star had a 20-year cocaine habit that cost her £400 a day at its worst point - but she couldn't give it up while she was pregnant.

Danniella described how she was still snorting the class A drug in the labour room, asking the doctors to leave so she could do a line.

She later appeared on The Jeremy Kyle Show in 2012 to open up about the desperation she felt throughout her pregnancy, and how she was snorting five grams of cocaine a day while expecting.

"I did take drugs right up until I delivered him in the bathroom of the suite," she confessed to the ITV chat show host.

"I did a line of coke during labour. I was in a terrible state. No one could help me. But I knew I wanted that child - I didn't have anyone else in my life."

She also revealed that her bump was so big at five weeks that she could be expecting twins.

A representative for Danniella declined to comment when approached by Mirror Online.
