Denise Welch barely recognises who she was before she quit drinking.

On Thursday (18.04.19), the 60-year-old presenter marked seven years since she gave up alcohol and she took to social media to reveal how her sobriety has saved her life.

In a candid post, she tweeted alongside a heart emoji: "Today marks 7 yrs since I had my last drink. I hardly recognise the woman I was but I feel for her. Giving up saved my life"

She received some words of encouragement from former "Geordie Shore" star Charlotte Crosby, who heaped praise on the "Loose Women" presenter for her achievement.

She wrote: "Good on you Denise... bloody amazing women (sic)"

Denise decided not to drink again after that night, when Lincoln - who had previously given up booze when the couple had a row over their problems - admitted he loved her but wasn't sure it could work out.

She added: "This man was the love of my life, and I gave up that night and I've never touched a drop since. I am proud of myself, I'm proud of us both."
