Vanessa White has revealed her battle with alcohol.

Speaking in this week's issue of The Sun on Sunday newspaper's Fabulous magazine, she admitted: ''I drank vodka mainly but, to be honest, I drank anything.
''It massively affected the band and I felt lonely and depressed. 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 [Foden] to cover my solos.''
She revealed her problems started to get ''out of control'' over three years ago, admitted she was ''out every night'' drinking.
She added: ''My life started to spin out of control in 2010 and it was a dreadful year. I'd be out every night.
''I went to G.A.Y., mainly because I didn't want to be hassled by men and just wanted to drink.''
However, Vanessa explained how her band mate Rochelle Humes helped her see the extent of her problem near the end of 2011 and got her back on track.
She said: ''She told me to come to hers and I stayed with her for two weeks, not drinking, and eating properly. It made me realise I had to stop.''
