Michelle Heaton has unveiled her new tattoo to celebrate six months of sobriety.

Back in April, the former Liberty X star checked into rehab after turning to alcohol to help cope with health problems and has since admitted that her month at the Priory Clinic saved her life.

In August, she celebrated reaching a milestone achievement of 100 days of sobriety and is continuing to lead an alcohol-free life.

On Tuesday, Michelle took to Instagram to announce that she was sitting in New Wave Tattoo Studio in London ready to get inked.

Speaking to her followers on her Stories, the pop singer said: “I’m getting my tattoo today which is a little bit of the serenity prayer and a feather, which symbolises my journey to sobriety because it was the first thing I found on the floor the day I walked into the Priory and I’ve been finding them everywhere ever since.

“I’m coming up to my six months and what better way to celebrate than with a tattoo!”

She wrote: “God grant me the serenity…

“It’s a celebration to myself that in a week I am six months clean and sober - and completing my #12steps.

“It’s not been easy, I’ve found myself in everyday pain and struggles, but that’s life. And today I don’t drink or use on those things. I now accept the #serenityprayer and I now have a life beyond my wildest dreams.

“The feather represents life. The first day a feather fell to my feet as I walked into the Priory. I picked it up I kept it and I have it now on my wall... I see strength, hope and faith at it when all I saw was weakness, fear and doubt.”

She concluded by offering some advice to people who were also struggling with addiction.

“Don’t have a good day guys... Have a great day! First step and biggest step is admitting you have a problem and asking for help!” she said.
