Danniella Westbrook says she shouldn’t have been allowed on The Jeremy Kyle Show

DANNIELLA Westbrook revealed she was a “vulnerable” person, when she appeared on The Jeremy Kyle Show.

The former TV star has confessed she shouldn’t have been allowed on The Jeremy Kyle Show. 

Danniella’s comments come amid TV bosses confirming the programme had been permanently axed.

Danniella, who appeared on the programme to talk about her years of drug abuse, made the confession on this morning’s episode of Jeremy Vine on 5. 

Despite recording the episode months ago, following the axe of The Jeremy Kyle Show, it is unknown if the episode will ever air. 

Speaking to the TV presenter, the mum-of-two revealed her son pleaded with her not to go on he show as “she would use the money to buy drugs”. 

“I only went on the show for the fee, as I needed the money.”

During the candid interview, she said: “For a person riddled with drug addiction and self-harming, I was a very vulnerable person to put on the show. 

“The morning I was due to go on, my son was on the phone to me saying ‘If you go on, I’ll never speak to you again – you’re only going to kill yourself. You’re only on there for drugs, for money. 

“And you know what, the kid was right.”

She added: “But I wanted to go on, I just wasn’t in the right frame of mind. 

“I only went on the show for the fee, as I needed the money. “

During the interview, the 45-year-old detailed the aftercare she received after her stint on the show. 

“They really have looked after me. Since I’ve been in rehab, I’ve spoken to Jeremy all the time. 

“When I when back on the show, I was reassessed. 

“He’s been my friend of 20 years, and he was hard on me, but someone needed to be.”

The show has since been axed following the death of a former guest. 

Despite the cause of Steve Dymond’s death not being confirmed, friends and family feared he killed himself after he failed to prove he hadn’t cheated on his estranged partner.

The grandfather appeared on the show to take a lie detector test to show Jane Callaghan he had remained faithful.
