Kirsty Gallacher has given up alcohol after she was caught drink-driving last year.

The "Sky Sports News" presenter was slapped with a two-year driving ban back in September after she blew almost three times over the legal limit on a breathalyser test when she was stopped by police in Eton, Berkshire, a few weeks before.

And, although it was claimed her erratic driving was completely out of character, the 42-year-old beauty has decided to stick to drinking "tons of water and nothing else."

Speaking in an interview with Lisa Snowdon, according to The Sun Online, Kirsty said when asked about her beauty secrets: "One of them is to drinks tons of water. I don't really drink anything else. I put lemon and ginger in my water quite a lot. It tastes great and is good for detoxing and cleansing, and also alkalises your system."

Kirsty appeared at East Berkshire Magistrates" Court in Slough at the beginning of September last year to plead guilty to drink-driving.

Probation officer Jasvir Kaur Bhatti - who put together a pre-sentencing report containing information on the offender which will depict the likelihood of her re-offending in order to determine the most suitable sentence - claimed the presenter had no idea she was over the limit and doesn't drink regularly.

He told the court: ""There was no intention to drive while over the limit. She did not realise she was over the next day. She does not have a drink problem. She works long hours and drives a lot so she does not usually drink."

He also said her divorce from her husband Paul Sampson had caused her stress and she was extremely apologetic for her illegal behaviour behind the wheel.

He added: "There are divorce proceedings going on at the moment which are stressful. She is very remorseful and apologises.""

Jennifer Dempster, mitigating, had also explained that Kirsty had taken a taxi home following her night of boozing and had gone to pick her car up the next morning.

She explained: "This is of course the morning after drinking, and it is a topic which is a hot one at present. This is in many senses unintentional drink-driving. What this defendant did was exactly right until 11:00 BST the next morning."

Kirsty was told her driving ban could be reduced by six months if she agrees to take part in a driving safety course at a later date.
