The actress and television personality is desperate to see her 17-year-old daughter - who she has with her former spouse Kevin Jenkins - as she fears she could pass away.

One pal said: "She told me she hasn't seen Jody recently."

Whilst another friend added to the Daily Star on Sunday: "Jody lives with Kevin. Dan has this gut feeling that she won't outrun this. We're telling her medicine can work wonders these days and she has caught it early, but she just has this feeling even the hysterectomy will be too much for her and she'll die on the table. She just wants to see Jody."

Last month, Danniella revealed she is battling womb cancer and is currently waiting to see if it has spread to other parts of her body.

She said: "I've always said I am not scared of dying. But when the doctor said, 'You have cancer', straight away my thoughts turned to Jade [Goody] and that I don't want to die. I know I need to fight. After what happened with Jade I was frightened to talk to anyone about my cancer at first. She was my friend and what happened was so awful. There is part of me that thinks I would rather just be ill and not know about it - to just get on with life. But then I thought about the kids and I thought that is a selfish way to be. I've tried to commit suicide before but getting this diagnosis has made me realise I don't want to die. I want to live and sort out my health. I know I have to fight, I know I have to get up and battle it."
