Irish Daily Mirror - - IRISH DAILY MIRROR - BY MIR­ROR REPORTER

Mon­ica and Gabriella THE Cheeky Girls have told of their se­cret bat­tles with de­pres­sion and anorexia at the height of their suc­cess.

Mon­ica and Gabriella, 35, shot to fame on Pop­stars: The Ri­vals in 2002.

But away from the singing and danc­ing to their catchy hits, life was of­ten mis­er­able.

Speak­ing on Loose Women, Mon­ica said: “We were told what to do all of the time so we ended up work­ing 24 hours a day.

“Slowly we be­came de­pressed.”

Gabriella added: “We couldn’t con­trol our lives so we con­trolled what we ate in­stead.

“We would wear baggy clothes to make peo­ple be­lieve we were eat­ing.”
