Danniella Westbrook’s 'anti-vax' daughter Jodie catches Covid AGAIN

THE daughter of ex EastEnders actress Danniella Westbrook has contracted Covid for the second time.

Jodie Jenkins has posted anti-vax messages throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

Jodie, the 20-year-old daughter of Danniella and ex Kevin Jenkins, tonight revealed she would be forced to isolate over New Year's Eve for the second year running, after months of speaking out against the Covid-19 vaccine.

Hours before telling her fans about her positive test result, Jodie posted an apparent anti-vax message.

It read: "Sorry Mrs Jones. I know you’re worried about that lump, but I’ve really got to give a booster to this healthy 25-year-old who has already had two jabs and one about a very mild Covid."

Covid booster jabs protect against Omicron and offer the best chance to get through the pandemic, health officials have repeatedly said.

The Sun's Jabs Army campaign is helping get the vital extra vaccines in Brits' arms to ward off the need for any new restrictions.

Jodie later shared a photo of her lateral flow test which revealed two clear lines.

She added on Instagram: "Two NYE stuck in with Covid. How's your luck."

Ex EastEnders actress Danniella opened up about battling severe depression after suffering from Covid in August.

The 47-year-old said she fell into a dark place after contracting the deadly virus and was unable to leave the house.

She said: "It was severe, severe depression, I was literally getting out of bed just to eat and sometimes not even to wash.

“It was much needed that I got up and went out today and a huge thank you to my good mate Kelli Hollis and her family for coming to get me and making me leave the house, get up and get my s**t together.”

The star continued:  “Depression is in all of us and none of us can escape it, it’s just how it manifests sometimes. 

“For me, it’s particularly bad since I had Covid, but I feel like I have turned the corner so thank you guys. Thanks to my kids for their support, they have been on the end of the phone 24/7.”

Danniella admitted that some days she struggled to pick up the phone to her kids or her sponsors, but is now out of the other side of it. 

She told her followers at the time:  “I'm really, really poorly. I'm gutted, fuming.”

The Sam Mitchell star said she had Covid though had been fully vaccinated.
