The Scot, who is currently subject to the UK-wide coronavirus lockdown, uploaded a candid make-up free selfie showing her in a partial scowl at the camera.
Danni had tied her hair in a bun and pulled on her dressing gown over her clothes.
She added a second snap showing her pouting at the camera as she wrote: “I’ve cracked ??♀️ Had my first lockdown cry this morning while trying to do an online workout class.
“Very dramatic ? Literally just burst into tears and had to turn it off (sorry @loucbarton it was me, not you!?♀️).”

Speaking about a harrowing period of her life, Danni said: “I had an accident and someone from my childhood passed away, I think the trauma of both those things had a knock-on effect.”
After trying NLP therapy, the presenter said she “came out the other side of things.”
“The power of social media is amazing, there’s a lot of celebrities speaking about it so it’s a bit more talked about now and that’s actually a positive thing.”
