Michelle recently credited pal Katie Price for "saving her life" as she was "days from death" after three years of increased alcohol consumption and cocaine use.

She spent weeks in rehab after celebrity pals including Katie, 43, footed the bill for her to get help for her drink and drugs addiction.

The Liberty X singer said she had been drinking two bottles of wine and a bottle of vodka almost every day since 2018, as well as taking cocaine.

In her first interview since leaving rehab, 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."

After an intervention, led by Katie, Michelle says she felt "relieved" to be going to rehab.

She said: "I was shaking and I was crying. I was intoxicated. Katie Price said, 'Right, you're going to The Priory'."
