Danniella Westbrook is ENGAGED! The former EastEnders actress, 48, reveals her secret jailbird boyfriend David, 28, popped the question during one of her visits

  • The former EastEnders star has said she will wait until David is released from prison to tie the knot 
  • It could be third time lucky for the star, who has been married twice previously to Ben Morgan (1998) and Kevin Jenkins (2001-2020)  
  • Liverpudlian David is 20 years her junior and the pair were previously in a ‘tumultuous’ relationship after meeting each other other in Spain five years ago

Danniella Westbrook is engaged to her jailbird lover David. 

The former Albert Square resident, 48, kept schtum on her romance until recently, when she denied dating the father of former The Only Way Is Essex star Grace Andrews and instead revealed her mystery man is behind bars.  

And now, a smitten Danniella has insisted she will wait until David has been released to tie the knot but they have discussed the prospect of a Maldives wedding as early as next year.

She said: ‘I’ve got a big ring that was made for me, and I wore it into the jail and David said, “it was lovely but it’s not big enough”, so there is a bigger one coming.

‘He has asked me to marry him but I told him to wait until he gets home. He asks me all the time, he even asked me at the jail. He didn’t get down on one knee or anything but he’s like, “we are getting married you know.”‘    

Liverpudlian David, at 28, is 20 years her junior and the pair were previously in a ‘tumultuous’ relationship after meeting each other other in Spain five years ago. 

Yet despite their ‘up-and-down’ romance, Danniella explained to The Daily Star: ‘We just stayed in touch and he went to jail early 2019 and he got 9 years 9 months. He’s home next year though, he’s got 11 months to go.’

It could be third time lucky for the former Celebrity Big Brother housemate, who has been married twice before. 

Her first marriage was to van driver Ben Morgan in 1998, but they divorced nine months later. 

In 2001, the star married businessman Kevin Jenkins, almost four months after the birth of their daughter Jodie. They divorced in 2020.

With less than a year until David is a free man, the actress is already planning some risqué business for the pair of them.

After revealing they had already slept together in Spain, Danniella confessed: ‘There’s nothing like that going on now though, they listen in to all your phone calls and screen the emails and photocopy all of the letters so we can’t risk anything rude on there as all the screws will see it first.

‘But there will be many sleepless nights on my gorgeous new bed once he’s out.’
