Ex-EastEnders actress Daniella Westbrook has been left red-faced after her car was reportedly repossessed but she thought it had been stolen.

She posted a few minutes later that Medway police were aware.

Her boyfriend Tom Richards Tweeted a picture of Westbrook's black Peugeot with the message: "@westbrookdanni car just been stolen , if anyone sees this can u please contact the police".

But it has now been reported that the car was in fact taken by bailiffs.

She told the Daily Mirror it was a "complete and utter misunderstanding".

She added: "I forgot to set up the direct debit so didn't realise that the payments were not being made."

The former soap star, who played Sam Mitchell in EastEnders, emigrated from Kent to California in 2010, but was reported to have bought another home in the county recently.

Twice married, the 40-year-old was said to have recently got engaged to toyboy lover Tom Richards.

The latest drama in Westbrook's life follows the arrest of her 17-year-old son Kai Jenkins.

He was questioned by Kent Police last week after an alleged public order offence in Rochester.

But Westbrook has denied claims made in The Sun newspaper that she jumped on a police car.

The article claimed that she had leapt on top of a patrol car in a “blind rage” after officers arrested her teenage son.

She later tweeted: “I must b fitter than I thought for 40 lol jumping on police cars?I’m sure that someone would get arrested for that! If it’s was true! Pmsl.”

A spokesperson from Kent Police said: “Kent Police is investigating an alleged public order offence following a reported disturbance in Rochester just after 10.30am on Wednesday, April 23.

“A 17-year-old boy was arrested and bailed until June 4 pending further enquiries.”
