TV and radio presenter Zoe Ball has shared her pride at marking two years of sobriety - through the ‘toughest’ years of her life.

The Blackpool-born star, 47, shared an image on Instagram that read: “I have been sober from alcohol for 2 years.”

Alongside the image, she wrote: “Special moment. 2 years no booze - through two of the toughest years of my life, I’m not sure I’d have survived intact had it had not been for my sobriety & #recovery.

“Sending out some big love & #gratitude to everyone at #Lifeworks #Woking & my dear friends in the fellowship, & some extra big love to my family & special magic loved ones who encouraged me to get help & have supported me through everything.”

She added: “Thoughts and strength and love for any folk out there starting the path to recovery #strength #love #onedayatatime #serenityprayer #aameetings #rehab #addictions #recovery #calm #care #love #gratitude.”

Last year her partner Billy Yates was found dead at his home aged 40, and in September 2016 she announced her separation from DJ husband Norman Cook after 18 years married.

The Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two host cycled from Blackpool to Brighton raising £500,000 for Sport Relief and awareness of mental health issues earlier this year.
