Danniella Westbrook has said she is seeking legal advice after her nose was mocked on a recent episode of Gogglebox.

The actress, who was recently left bruised and shocked after a mugging, shared her anger at being mocked on the Channel 4 show.

Fan favourites The Siddiqui family joked about Danniella's nose, which collapsed at the height of her cocaine addiction in the 90s.

"I'd rather have one giant eye," Umar responded, with Baasit asking, "You'd rather be Cyclops?"

After the airing of the episode, Danniella, 47, took to Twitter to share her unhappiness about the joke.

The former Eastenders star wrote: "Thank you everyone for the support you gave me about the derogatory comments Channel 4 allowed the Siddiqui family to make.
