The former 'EastEnders' actress was set to star on the programme, but in a series of now-deleted tweets, Danniella claims the producers were using a cancelled appearance on 'Loose Women' last year as "an excuse".

Danniella - who has struggled with drug addiction - wrote on the micro-blogging website: "So @ITV @thismorning ask me on the show to talk about my health and what I've been through this last year then pull it! Trying to make me look bad!

"Using @loosewomen as an excuse I was still miscarrying when I didn't do loose women that day! It's a joke the way they've used me. (sic)"

The actress also shared a screenshot of what appears to be part of an email from a 'This Morning' producer informing her of the change of plan.

Later, Danniella revealed on her Twitter account that she's now facing legal action.

She wrote: "Now have legal action being taken for standing up for myself !!! # This industry really (sic)"

Danniella then revealed she plans to go on holiday in order to escape the stresses of the TV business.

She said: "Time to go on holiday I think [thinking emoji] so can't deal with this weather and people's negativity in my industry right now ... I need sunshine and smiles not dark clouds and sky snakes in my life (sic)"

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for ITV told Digital Spy: "Guest appearances are often subject to change on a daily live programme."
