The Saturdays’ Vanessa White has opened up about her secret battle with alcohol.
The singer revealed she was out every night drinking and things got so bad her voice began to go.
Vanessa admitted: “I didn’t know who I was underneath everything I was supposed to be. I’d arrive for work every morning hungover, then my voice started to go. I’d have to ask Una to cover my solos”.
Eventually things began to crumble around her. “My life started to spin out of control in 2012 and it was a dreadful year. I’d be out every night.
“I drank vodka mainly, but, to be honest, I drank anything. It massively affected the band and I felt lonely and depressed”.
She says her bandmates rallied around her and helped her to beat her problem. In 2012, she met boyfriend Gary Salter and began swapping nights out for exercise and healthy eating.
We’re so glad to hear Vanessa is in a good place now and so proud of her for being strong enough to deal with her problem.
And once again it proves just how amazing your closest girls can be.
