Danniella Westbrook and Chris Maloney to clash?
Danniella Westbrook and Chris Maloney have taken their bitter feud into the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house.
The 42-year-old former soap star has claimed the controversial 'X Factor' singer forced her have a "breakdown" after he shared her phone number with her violent ex-boyfriend Tom Richards, who she had a restraining order against at the time.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, she said: "I had a lot of issues with the guy I used to go out with after my marriage split up. I've got restraining orders and stuff. He's due to come out on bail today, they're waiting until I get into the house to release him. The whole time through this Chris and I were very good friends, we did panto together and Chris was sending him all the messages that I was sending to him and giving him my phone number.
"I had a breakdown. I thought Chris was supposed to be my friend. It made it very hard for me."
However, Chris, 46, believes he fell out with the ex-'EastEnders' actress because he was left "caught in the middle", but insists there is no bad blood on his part.
He said: "I don't hold grudges. She fell out with me. When she split up with her partner, he was still trying to be my friend. I struck up a friendship with him and I was caught in the middle. I don't hate her. It's just that we haven't spoken. She was patron of my academy, we did panto together, I've looked after her, but I've not had the chance to speak to her about everything because she changed her number."
The pair shared an awkward hug when they entered the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house on Tuesday night (05.01.16).
