It came after a nasty sinus infection left her in intensive care.
Writing on Twitter over the weekend, she said: “Thanks for all the messages of support for my operation. It was a huge success and I’m so happy thank you to @LivHospitals and the best staff surgical team and cleanest hospital ever x #NHS#Liverpool.”
Fans were delighted to hear she was OK with some admitting they had felt concerned for her.
She spent last night watching the star-studded Audience with Adele on ITV.
The show was a rollercoaster of emotions for Danniella, who wrote: “I’ve laughed and cried and loved every second watching Adele tonight… a true star, humble, talented, funny and unique.”
Last week Danniella told her Instagram followers that she was back at Aintree University Hospital waiting to go into theatre.

She shared a selfie in her gown and wrote: “Feel so overwhelmed and full of hope and gratitude. Huge thanks to the most amazing surgeons and @nhs team x.”
Posting the same picture on her Instagram Story, she added Christina Aguilera’s anthem Fighter.
During her last hospital stay Danniella was told she might need surgery to prevent a repeat of the infection.
It came after antibiotics failed to beat it, leaving her “really poorly”.
Doctors worried the infection could spread to “her brain”, with a pal telling us: “Experts were concerned infected mucus could track back to her brain, but she is being well cared for in hospital and is on the mend.”
Danniella, who played Sam Mitchell in EastEnders, sparked further concern when she posted a message to her children and mum.
The star shared the message on Instagram to the sound of How Long Will I Love You by Ellie Goulding.
It read: “Tell someone you love them today. Because tomorrow is not promised. To my family and my friends, I love you.”
