The CBB star spoke during a phone in one BBC 5 Live about Ant’s issues with alcohol after he was given the biggest ever drink-drive fine yesterday.

She said: “I feel for Ant.  With Ant because how high up he is and the stigma around addiction, he would have people telling him not to speak about it. He went to rehab and was quickly put back into work.

“When I saw that happen I felt for him and I know what that is like to be pushed back onto the stage when you don’t want to and are not ready.

“I knew that wasn’t his rock bottom. But I think what happened recently was his rock bottom, it might seem terrible now but he is on the road to recovery now. He is not a bad person at all.”

Yesterday TV presenter Ant was slapped with a £86,000 fine and banned from getting behind the wheel for 20 months after he admitted to drink-driving.

Discussing how her own downward spiral began, Stephanie said: “It was kind of a progression thing, when I was in Hollyoaks I was very young. I can’t pin point when it was it, if I was born with it, was it a trauma or something that happened but alcohol never agreed with me.”

The mum –of-one continued: “When I was in Hollyoaks, it was too much too soon and I was with a lot of adults drinking a lot of alcohol, it just started to get out of control, when things went wrong for me I started using it to help cope and deal with things.

“My emotions were just out of control, so I’d drink to try and manage them. Obviously it made it worse, at the time I thought it would make it better.

THE Queen’s Birthday Party viewers were left bemused this evening as the WI decided to make The Queen a birthday cake featuring her beloved corgis – who have all passed away.

The royal – who is celebrating turning 92 –  was left heartbroken last weekend when her last corgi, Willow, was put down at Windsor Castle.

But as part of the TV special for the big day, the Women’s Institute decided to make a cake featuring the little pups.

Those watching at home felt the timing was a little insensitive and took to Twitter to comment on it.

One person wrote: “Er didn’t her last Corgi die last week ? Jus askin – could be wrong  #Queensbirthdayparty.”

While another person wrote: “Bit unfortunate to put a corgi on the cake when she’s just had her last one put to sleep!  #Queensbirthdayparty.”

A third commented:“Oops, bad timing to put corgis on the Queen’s birthday cake. RIP Willow but that cake sounds fabulous! More gin, please #QueensBirthdayParty.”
