After exchanging a slew of tweets about love, engagements and his ‘chopper’, you could be forgiven for thinking Danniella Westbrook had found herself a new boyfriend in the form of social media star Benny James.

Gushing about the love rat – who uses Twitter to pick up women and admits he’s bedded hundreds – ex-EastEnders star Danniella hailed him a ‘diamond’ who made her feel like a ‘princess’ as they planned a luxury yacht break together.

But things have gotten awkward after Benny said they are a thing, but she insisted they aren’t.

“We have a little something going on,” he told Mirror Online yesterday.

But just hours later Danniella, 44, let rip on social media insisting they’re just mates and even tagging him in it.
