STEPHANIE Davis has been pictured with a big smile on her face as she left a gym after revealing she’s battling alcohol addiction.
Hours after the revelation, Steph, 24, was pictured leaving a gym in Liverpool and looked on great form.
The star smiled and looked relaxed as she exited the venue in an all black exercise ensemble and with her dark hair tied up in a messy top knot.
Steph then checked her mobile phone before climbing into a car and heading home.
The star revealed her secret battle with the booze to OK! Magazine, saying she turned to booze to help her cope with the aftermath of her toxic relationship with Jeremy McConnell.
The relationship and its aftermath took its toll on the 24-year-old, and she has now admitted to using alcohol to help her cope.
Steph said: “I’m an alcoholic. Going to rehab saved my life.
“I took an overdose while I was still with Jeremy.”
Stephanie then said how she was taken to hospital but paparazzi were soon outside and she now thinks Jeremy told them we were there.
She added: “After we split up there were several times when I thought about killing myself.”
The star then admitted she had “always turned to drink” during difficult times but found herself drinking more during their relationship to block out how awful it was.
She said: “It took me a long time to realise that I had a serious problem.
“I was drinking heavily and was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder after I split up with Jeremy, because of everything I had been through while we were together.”
Stephanie added her drinking got to the point where she drank most days until she blacked out, and she started to have suicidal thoughts.
She said: “I knew that for Caben’s sake, I had to sort myself out before it was too late.
“I knew that if I didn’t take drastic measures to turn my life around, I would end up dead.”
Thankfully entering rehab helped Stephanie get back on the right path, and she has now been sober for 90 days.
She continued: “Rehab has taught me that I have to give up alcohol for good – I’m 90 days sober and I no longer need booze to help me cope.”
