Former EastEnders actress Danniella Westbrook has revealed that she had been approached to pose nude for a saucy photoshoot following her recent reconstructive surgery.
And now daughter Jodie Jenkins, 21, is throwing her full support behind the 50-year-old, albeit on one condition.
‘I mean, if you’ve got a good body then flaunt it’ Jodie said. ‘As long as she jumps in the gym then go for it’.

Speaking to the Daily Star Jodie admitted that while she supported her mother’s new career path, she didn’t think her own boyfriend would be too happy if she were to do the same.
But Danniella, who was also present for the chat, revealed that her jailed fiancée David, 28, loves the idea.
Taking on board her daughter’s advice the former soap star said: ‘It [the photoshoot] will be very racy. So, I just need to get my body into shape but I’m going to do it.

‘I’m coming up to 50 and I’m going to represent the old ladies and go for it, being fabulous at 50’.
Speaking to The Sun earlier this year Jodie revealed she had not yet met her mum’s presently jailed boyfriend.
She said: ‘I let her get on with what she needs to do and I am sure he is a lovely man. He is making her very happy so I’ve got nothing against that.’
Damage: Meanwhile, Danniella is finally getting facial reconstructive surgery on the NHS after private plastic surgeons said it would cost £500,000.
Meanwhile, Danniella is finally getting facial reconstructive surgery on the NHS after private plastic surgeons said it would cost £500,000.
The star needs five operations to correct her ‘collapsing’ face due to a previous cocaine addiction and osteoporosis.
But she insists she needs the surgery to ‘survive’ and that it isn’t for ‘vanity’ but purely for health reasons after her septum collapsed from excessive drug use in 2002.
She told The Sun: ‘I’ve spent the last seven years trying to get somebody to do it, but they said no in case it failed and they got struck off.

‘Plastic surgeons wanted £500,000 to change my face, so I thought I was never going to get it done. It was only because I went into intensive care before Christmas.
‘I was sent over to Aintree Hospital in Liverpool and it’s only because I was put in front of the right doctors, or else I’d still be waiting now to find someone. ‘They’re doing it for me under the NHS now.’
Earlier this month, Danniella stepped out with a bandage over her nose, leaving fans convinced that she had already had her nose surgery.
Tough: Her battle with drugs has been publicised, and she had her nose reconstructed after her septum collapsed from cocaine use in 2002 (pictured left in 2009 and right this year)
But the dressings came after she had skin removed for biopsies to determine whether she is fit for the upcoming procedures.
The star recently revealed her plans to have a rib inserted into her face after years of drug abuse caused her nose to collapse.
She previously underwent a rib insertion procedure in 2018, after osteoporosis rotted away her cheekbones and gums and, after spending the last year getting lip filler and Botox, in addition to surgery on her face, she is hoping to get back to her best.
She returned in 1996 but her time was cut short when her off-screen behaviour got her sacked.
She returned again shortly after, but was axed again in 2000 after further disruptive behaviour, admitting she blew £100k on cocaine at the time.
The part was recast between 2002 and 2005, and played by Kim Medcalf, but Danniella returned to the role once more in 2009 until 2010.
She was back again in 2016 for the storyline surrounding on-screen mother Peggy Mitchell’s death, which is to date her final appearance.
Actress: Danniella first appeared in EastEnders in 1990 at the age of 16 and has had several stints on the soap over the years (pictured 2009)
