Danniella Westbrook and and her ex-fiancé Tom Richards have been openly feuding on Twitter over alleged claims of assault and now the former EastEnders star has revealed some serious bruising.

The 41-year-old was photographed at her local hospital earlier in the week with a horrible black eye, looking very worn out.

On the same day, on Thursday, she took to Twitter where she made several alarming claims that her 24-year-old on and off fiancé had physically abused her, accusations he has strenuously denied.
