Zoe marks two years of so­bri­ety

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

ZOE Ball has shared her pride at mark­ing two years of so­bri­ety, af­ter some of the “tough­est” years of her life.

The ra­dio and TV pre­sen­ter, 47, shared an im­age on In­sta­gram that read: “I have been sober from al­co­hol for 2 years.”

She wrote: “Spe­cial mo­ment. 2 years no booze – through two of the tough­est years of my life, I’m not sure I’d have sur­vived in­tact had it had not been for my so­bri­ety.

“Some ex­tra big love to my fam­ily and spe­cial magic loved ones who en­cour­aged me to get help and have sup­ported me through ev­ery­thing.”

Ball last year faced the loss of her part­ner Billy Yates, who was found dead at his home at the age of 40.

This year the Strictly Come Danc­ing: It Takes Two host cy­cled more than 350 miles over five days, from Black­pool to Brighton, rais­ing more than £500,000 for Sport Re­lief in a fundraiser in­spired by him.

Ball was pre­vi­ously mar­ried to Nor­man Cook, aka DJ Fat­boy Slim, and they an­nounced their sep­a­ra­tion af­ter 18 years of mar­riage in Septem­ber 2016.
