On January, 5, she took to Instagram to share an inspirational post, speaking out about her decision to quit alcohol.

Suzanne put together a montage video to mark the milestone, including clips of herself that she called ’embarrassing’ when she did drink, telling fans how it was ‘time to escape the alcohol trap’, be ‘hangover free’ and live her best life.

The montage included videos of herself now, fitter and healthier, alongside clips of her with wine bottles and being the version of herself she said she no longer wants to be.

The former singer captioned the post: ‘4th January 2020 I made a promise to myself… To respect, love and care for me.’

She insisted: ‘No more living a life to fit in with society, drinking myself into ill mental and no doubt eventually poor physically health.

‘It was time to commit to a life to be proud of.’

The TV personality continued: ‘I used to visualise myself being healthy and taking adventures, sharing my wellness journey and knowledge and helping raise awareness for mental health and today that’s exactly what I do.

‘I push my limits, care for my wellbeing, share my story and coach others to live a healthier lifestyle.’

Speaking to anyone thinking of following in her footsteps, Suzanne urged people to ‘choose you and your health and happiness’.

The star went on: ‘If you are on a wellness mission or taking a break from alcohol here are my 3 top tips… 1. Commit – own your decision and know your why.

‘2. Consistency – small steps every day. Break it down to 1 job, prioritise your wellbeing daily.

‘3. Community – surround yourself with supportive people who will help you and motivate you to keep going. Join groups, follow inspirational wellness accounts, read books, listen to podcasts, watch documentaries.’
