Her post comes after she recently told told fans she has coronavirus..

The former EastEnders star said in an Instagram clip she recorded from her bed: "I’m fuming and so poorly.

"Just a quick update to let you know that yes, I've got Covid and I'm really, really poorly. I'm gutted, fuming.

"People I know that have had both jabs have got it again so f*** knows if that's worth it.

"I don't know why people bother because they've gone and got Covid again anyway.

"It seems there's been a massive wave of Covid outbreak yet again and I'm one of the people that have got it.

"Look after yourselves, look out for each other and stay safe. Take care."

Two Covid jabs provides protection against severe disease and hospitalisation.

Earlier this month Daniella sparked hopes she was joining Emmerdale after turning up on set and posting videos of her outside the Woolpack.

She had previously told fans how desperate she is to feature in the iconic, long-running farm based evening drama.

And she made it look like she had successfully manifested her dream as she took to social media to reveal she was outside the iconic Woolpack pub – arguably one of the most famous landmarks of Emmerdale.

However, Danniella was effectively teasing her fans as she is yet to officially land a role on the show, and she was instead at the filming location for an event being held by the podcast Soap From The Box.

Sharing video via her Instagram feed, the star declared: "Hey everyone, guess where I am today. I've actually made it, I'm here at The Woolpack.

"Yes, Westbrook is in Emmerdale. I'm in Emmerdale. I'm not technically in it but I'm there. What an amazing day, I'm so excited. Emmerdale! I'm so happy."

The tease thrilled fans, with one responding to her post to ask: "Are you going to actually be in Emmerdale? Please say yes, you'll be brilliant."
