It came after Danniella hinted at a split from her jailbird fiancé David after six years together with cryptic comment last Friday. 

The soap star raised suspicion during a reading with psychic Louisa Earth Angel on an Instagram Live. 

Danniella’s ‘toyboy’ David, 29 – who has never been pictured – is serving time in prison for counterfeit goods and engaging in a ‘fight with someone’, by her own admission.

When the medium mentioned prison during the reading, Danniella refused to talk about her partner, according to The Sun.

Louisa started off by hinted at bad blood as she predicted that Danniella could open up ‘old wounds’ soon.

Louisa said: ‘There is going to be a text from somebody in the next 14 days, which is going to open up old wounds for you. So you must handle that with apprehension. Okay, okay. apprehension, that’s all I’ll say.’

She then went on ‘I keep looking at the programme Porridge. And I don’t know why but I need to give you that as well.’

Danniella then replied: ‘Prison probably, it was in prison wasn’t it Porridge?’

To which Louisa confirmed: ‘Yeah, Porridge is in prison.’

But Danniella appeared to not want to go into more detail when the psychic was giving the information.

The reader continued: ‘I do feel as though there’s some something connected, but I don’t feel you’re gonna go to prison. You’re okay. But I just feel as though you might hear from something to do with a with a prison?’ 

Danniella then mumbled: ‘Yeah. Well, yeah, well, that. Yeah, there is. That’s right.

It comes after in happier times the actress joked that her toyboy ‘keeps her young’ as she discussed their 20-year age gap. 

The star told last year how there will be ‘many sleepless nights’ once her secret jailbird fiancé David is released from prison.

Speaking to the Daily Star last May, the soap actress said she is ‘living the dream’ by dating a younger man.

She said: ‘I’m just having a good time, I’m managed by young people – my children, my friends. They keep me edgy.

‘David is young and he’s 28, coming up for 29. David will be 30 when I’m 50. But I’m like the Barbara Windsor with Scott, she had a young one. Vanessa Feltz and Ben – they all have young other halves.

‘Everyone has toy boys. I’m living the dream, they keep me young.’

Danniella also proclaimed that she will be in the ‘best shape of [her] life at 50’ in both ‘body and mind’.
