Actress Danniella Westbrook says she felt ‘suicidal’ after discovering her son had seen her sex video on PornHub.

The former EastEnders star has spoken about the horrifying moment she realised a video of her had been uploaded to the internet porn site and the pain it caused, after having her phone stolen.

Speaking to the Sun, Danniella, 44, shared the distress of not only being the victim of revenge porn but having people she knows – like her immediate family – exposed to it.

‘I felt suicidal because that’s my kid,’ Danniella said when she heard her son, Kai, 21, had been alerted to the online leak.

He’d woken up to friends messaging him to alert him that his mum was trending online and had had a personal video uploaded to the porn site.

She tweeted: ‘Apparently there’s a video of me naked tipsy and in a sauna doing the rounds on line… Seriously it’s not breaking news and I wouldn’t rush to cancel ya @BabestationTV subscription people it’s a 10 sec clip off a phone I had nicked in Gran Canaria my apologises now 2 all!!’

‘He’s beside himself and I feel terrible’ she said about the incident.

‘This does make me feel bad, it makes me feel awful.

‘He told me: “I’ve woken up in Edinburgh and everyone’s sending me screenshots, you’re trending on Pornhub”.’

‘It’s revenge porn. They haven’t got the right to put it on Pornhub,’ she said, after stating that her phone was stolen while on holiday.

‘It can be taken down and will be hopefully, but the damage is done already.’

‘I know he [the man she’s seeing] would never send it in in a million years or else we would have a whole trilogy of me by now!

However, Danniella has already apologised for the leak – despite it in no way being her fault – and further says in hindsight that she regrets filming the video in the first place: ‘I shouldn’t have done it, but I got too drunk and sometimes I forget I’m a mum.’

Only last month the star spoke out about her ‘botched surgery’ that’s caused a number of health problems and psychological issues, after being left with osteoporosis in 2015 after an operation went wrong.
