Danniella Westbrook delighted fans when she shared a picture of herself and her daughter on Instagram.

Daughter Jodie Jenkins, 21, looks exactly like a mini-me version of her EastEnders star mother.

In the picture, the 48-year-old former actress snuggled up to her daughter for the adorable picture.

The two blondes looked almost identical, with Danniella wearing a pink top and sleek dark eyeliner, and Jodie looking fresh-faced with natural makeup.

The former EastEnders star and proud mother gushed about her lovely daughter.

She captioned the picture: "We are the same inside our [heart emoji]."

The actress continued: "Headstrong, sensitive ways… We have romantic, magical, gypsy-style souls.

"In a way I'm glad I made the mistakes that I did. Because of the pain and bad choices and wrong turns I've endured I see a bigger, deeper layer to life's adventure in front of her.

"And without her ever seeing a flicker of a flame I will make sure no one darkens her way. She was born to shine."

Danniella shares the heartfelt tribute just days after Jodie revealed she consoled a suicidal fan and helped save his life.

Jodie frantically called her mother with the alarming news that a fan was going to take their life on a live broadcast on Instagram.

Danniella pulled over the car and alerted her fans: "Guys I'm asking for everyone's help quickly. I've had to pull the car over, my daughter's called, there's a guy on social media, on Instagram… on a live video. He's trying to kill himself.

"Someone needs to get to his house urgently, I've left him an inbox with my telephone number to reach out and speak to someone.

"Get somebody there, he's just one of my followers.

"I can't bear anything like that it really worries me. So please if anyone knows him, please, please, please, go round to his house, his family, get in touch. If anyone knows him, get round there, please, now, thank you."

The two spoke to the man via Instagram and helped him while the police located him, stopped the broadcast, and got him the help he needed.
