DANNIELLA Westbrook has sparked relationship rumours after posting a message to social media star Benny James.
Benny, who once bragged he’d slept with more than 400 women and was bored of sex, shared a tweet from Danniella about their date.
The former builder, 28, posted a screenshot of the tweet on Instagram which revealed Danniella’s excitement.
The ex EastEnders actress penned: “I’m so excited I missed you so much. We have a busy but special weekend ahead of us.
“Time to make more memories watch more footie and enjoy my first ever trip to Winter Wonderland.”
Danniella, 49, ended the sentimental tweet by signing off: “Love you babe.”
Her new romance comes ahead of her stint in panto, with Danniella is preparing to make her acting comeback on the new adult only pantomime Sinderfella.
It will be her first role in six years as she plays Fairy Godmother opposite ex Big Brother star Simon Gross.
But one thing Danniella won’t be doing is going back to EastEnders.
Her character Sam Mitchell was recast earlier this year with actress Kim Medcalf – and Danniella wishes her well.
Actress Kim Metcalf was first cast to take over the role in 2002 and recently made a return in April of 2022.
And Danniella told The Sun she no longer holds bitterness towards the soap.
She said: “I’ve done it. And I will always be saying whatever soap, people always say about Sam Mitchell, whether it’s me or it’s Kim, it doesn’t matter. She’s just a character.
“It’s just a job. So the answer is I think Kim does a great job. A great, great job. You know, I think she really does … I feel for her, it’s difficult. But for me, I don’t want to work on a soap anymore.”
She added “I want to get back to being an actor.
“It’s good to be back around people that are actors. You know. I wanted to come back, doing a job that I’m wanting to do, which is great for me. So I’m really grateful to do that.”
