The 41-year-old singer has revealed she is days away from death after a three-year addiction battle.

But Michelle seems like her hard work fighting her demons paid off as she walked the Chessington World of Adventures hand-in-hand with her children.

The mom of two looked casual in olive pants and a bright orange t-shirt.

She wore a pair of gold hoops and let her hair hang down in relaxed waves.

Last month Michelle bravely revealed she was “days away from death” after going on a cocaine and alcohol binge for three years.

Barely 36 hours after leaving rehab, the TV personality told The Sun how she was only saved by an intervention from showbiz buddies led by Katie Price.

They not only insisted that Michelle, 41, enroll at the Priory, but also paid for her four-week stay to overcome her drug and alcohol addiction.

She explained how her husband Hugh Hanley was left to raise their children as she battled her demons.

The married mother of two rose to fame on ITV’s Popstars in 2000, leading to the formation of Liberty X a year later. After their separation in 2007, she turned to writing and television.

A downward spiral was set in motion when she discovered in 2012 that she carried the mutated BRCA2 gene, dramatically increasing her risk for breast and ovarian cancer.

Michelle had a mastectomy in 2012 and two years later she also chose to have a hysterectomy to avoid the risk of developing cancer.

It was at this point that Michelle revealed that she turned to drinks and drugs to cope with “pain and suffering.”

“‘What I was doing was a suicide mission. I was calling for help when I couldn’t really ask for help. When you’re a drug addict, you feel like there is no ‘issue, “she revealed.

“Last September I hit rock bottom with alcohol and had excruciating pain. My doctor could feel my liver sticking out because I was so thin.”

The star explained that before her rehab she had drunk a bottle of vodka and two bottles of wine “virtually every day since 2018”.

Michelle also revealed her “three-day coca binge” which saw her consume one gram of cocaine per night, in addition to her regular drinking.

At the Priory, he was told his GGT enzyme levels – which indicated damage to life – were 2,500 compared to the healthy level of 30.

After opening up this weekend, Michelle took to Instagram on Monday to thank everyone for supporting her.

As she was walking her dog in the sunny countryside, she filmed herself saying, “Everything is very quiet right now.

“I just wanted to say hello to everyone, it’s been a while, nice to see you all again. Thank you for all your wishes and support.”

Michelle added, “If there is someone who is struggling, you are not alone.”
