Michelle Heaton has thanked fans for their support after finishing rehab, revealing she was celebrating with a cute mocktail with her daughter.
The singer, 41, who has nine-year-old daughter Faith and seven-year-old son AJ with husband Hugh Hanley, had been in rehab following a battle with drug and alcohol addiction, and revealed she was embracing life sober.
Sharing a photo of her and her Faith raising wine glasses of colourful soft drinks infused with fruit, she told her followers: ‘#moctails who said we need alcohol? Said no one. #igotthis’.
Michelle also took to her Instagram story to thank her followers for their well-wishes after it was revealed she would be checking into a facility in April.
She told them: ‘Hey everybody it’s such a beautiful day, everything feels very calm at the moment.
‘I just wanted to say hi to everybody, it’s been a while, nice to meet you all again. Thank you for all your well wishes and your support. If there’s anybody out there struggling, you’re not alone.’

Michelle had credited her pal Katie Price, 43, for encouraging her to get help after her own stint in The Priory for severe trauma rehabilitation.
She told The Sun.: ‘I texted Katie while I was in The Priory, “You saved my life”. Because The Priory did save my life.
‘What I was doing was a suicide mission. I never actually thought, “I want to kill myself”, but ultimately I was killing myself. I was crying out for help when I couldn’t actually ask for help. But when you’re an addict, it feels like there’s no way out.’
Michelle also shared a touching photo of her hugging her family after leaving rehab, writing: ‘6 days ago … on the steps of the @priorygroup.
‘[Hugh], Faith & AJ you are my world. I’ve been given a second chance at life and I know I’m lucky to have that.
‘I’m overwhelmed with all the support and messages I’ve received when I was in rehab and since I’ve been out.
‘Thank you to my family, friends, people I’ve met – and not met. It really does mean a lot. X’.
