Danniella Westbrook struggling with the death of friend 'One Eyed Baz' Barrington from Danny Dyer's Deadliest Men

DANNIELLA Westbrook has opened up about struggling with the death of her friend 'One Eyed Baz' Barrington.

Barrington Patterson – who featured on Danny Dyer's Deadliest Men – tragically passed away from a heart attack on Tuesday.

Danniella, 48, took to Instagram to reveal that she was struggling to "process the awful news" as she shared a picture of her pal.

"Taken me all day to process this awful news, rest in peace my friends," the Big Brother star wrote beside the snap.

"This man was a true gentleman and huge help to all who knew him."

It was revealed yesterday that Barrington – nicknamed 'One Eyed Baz' – had passed away from a heart attack earlier this week.

The community activist turned around his life from 1980s thuggery to charity work, helping to combat homelessness and knife crime.

Tributes called him big-hearted, a good friend and an inspirational bloke, including from a number of celebrity friends.

Barrington, nicknamed One Eyed Baz after being blinded in his left eye when his sister threw a can at him as a youngster, also competed in kickboxing fights across the world.
