Danniella Westbrook has said her children will be so proud of her making the Celebrity Big Brother final.

The former EastEnders booked her place in the final last night when she survived the seventh eviction. She had been up against Gemma Collins and Stephanie Davis, and it was Gemma who went home.

"I can't believe it! I can't believe Gemma went before me; she's in TOWIE which is the biggest thing ever," said Danniella.

"My kids will be so proud of me, I'm so happy. Some people have got behind me and voted for me, and it really means a lot to me! I can't remember the last time I felt happy like this, probably when I had me kids. My life has turned around. Big Brother for me has given me a whole new lease of life; it's just changed me as a person. No one is going to pull me down no more.

"I'm just me. I'm proud to be Danniella Westbrook."

Go Danniella!

Ahead of entering the house, Danniella had said: "I want people to see the real me. Most people see me on Loose Women and the Wright Stuff and they do back me – I get a really good response on social media and from people I meet. It'll be nice to go in there and have a laugh and just be me."
