Former fiancé will do 'whatever it takes' after Westbrook calls off engagement

The former fiancé of Danniella Westbrook has vowed to do "whatever it takes" to win back the former 'EastEnders' star.

The actress announced that she had called off her engagement to Tom Richards on Twitter on Monday, two days before her 41st birthday, despite it being reported earlier this year that she was planning on tying the knot with the 24-year-old cage fighter before the end of the year.

She wrote: "It's Monday, a new week a new start and im single ,,, feels so good ? Go enjoy the day people I know I will."

Despite her later deleting the message, Tom has now confirmed their split but has vowed to win her back.

He wrote on his own account on the social networking site: "Absolutely gutted that me and @westbrookdannie have split but im goin away 2sort myself out, I love dan 2bits n wil do waever it takes 2fix it."

The fighter and personal trainer returned to Twitter last night to post a picture of a present wrapped in gift paper and tied up with a baby pink bow alongside the caption: "Dropping this off to some1 very special tmro ;-)."

Danniella - who has a history of drug abuse - first got together with Tom in April this year before separating briefly after she confessed to a drug relapse which resulted in an affair with a cocaine dealer.

However, the couple appeared to have put their differences behind them and were reported to be planning a Christmas wedding before their latest split.
