Danniella Westbrook gets catfished as she attempts to flirt with toyboy
Danniella Westbrook may be back in the dating game after the shock end to her engagement last September – but she’s already bitten off more than she can chew.
The 44-year-old ex-EastEnders star has been dipping her toe in the pool, but a concerned fan believes someone is taking advantage of her vulnerable state by catfishing her.
Catfishing is the use of other people’s photos and names to pretend to be them, in order to extract something from the target – or to embarrass them by luring them into a relationship.
In a string of flirty tweets, Danniella tells the account "yiur the best company and all the company I need" with a winky face.
When the account replied "I should hope so!", she flirted harder by telling them: "Go do ya [WhatsApp] updates then trouble xx."
She even invited the apparent fake account – which has just nine followers and has only tweeted seven times – to go on holiday with her, telling them to book an "extra AF" apartment with an infinity pool.
"This place is the one to book," she told them, adding a love heart.
"We will head there after Marbella," replied the account.
"I love you," Dan shot back, with yet another red heart.
A source told Mirror Online: "Danniella has just started flirting with a lad on Twitter, but he’s not who she thinks he is.
"The Twitter account shes actually flirting with is a fake account. She’s being catfished. The fake account is someone impersonating a different guy she knows.
"It’s quite funny to watch really. As if the real guy would ever be interested in her – she’s at least twice his age."
"So last night I had my first date in 8 months and it was actually a really nice evening. I am sick of being single & looking to find Mr right," she tweeted last week.
"I’ve learned to love myself & now I’m ready for love #PrinceCharmingWanted."
Danniella’s disastrous engagement to toyboy Alan Thomason ended in heartbreak when she suffered a miscarriage last September.
She’d previously dated E17’s Brian Harvey for four years, was with Robert Fernandez for two years, married Ben Morgan after an eight-week whirlwind romance, married second husband Kevin Jenkin then had flings with Tom Richards and George Arnold.
