Michelle Heaton gets a new tattoo to celebrate her sobriety after 'privately' supporting Katie Price

Michelle Heaton gets a new tattoo inspired by the 12-step Serenity Prayer to celebrate six months of sobriety after vowing to ‘privately’ support troubled Katie Price

She has been candid about sharing the truths of her alcohol addiction.

And Michelle Heaton has shared her story once again as she celebrated in preparation of her her six month sobriety next week with a new tattoo.

The Liberty X star, 42, took to Instagram on Tuesday to commemorate the milestone by sharing a close up of her forearm – which now depicts a feather surrounded by the opening words of the serenity prayer, commonly used to close 12-step meetings.

Continuing in her open book fashion, the singer shared: ‘God grant me the serenity….Today I got this tattoo by the legend Lal at @newwavetattoo who has done the most amazing art work on my body in the past.

‘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 every day 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.

‘Don’t have a good day guys.. have a great day! ❤️ others is a solution .. first step and biggest step is admitting you have a problem and asking for help! Xx’.

Michelle previously revealed she did not go for a day without alcohol for three years before she checked into rehab in April.

Her photo uploads come as she vowed to support her pal Katie Price after her drink and drug-fuelled car crash.

Katie, 43, is facing jail after pleading guilty to a slew of motoring offences, as well as checking into The Priory rehabilitation clinic to treat her drink and drug problems.

Michelle said in a statement in Wednesday she is supporting the star and her family privately.

Taking to Instagram, the star asked fans to ‘give her space’ so she can be there for her friend and her family, and urged her followers to ‘ask for help’ if they need it.

On her grid, Michelle noted that Katie was a huge support to her while she battled alcohol addiction and she intends to do the same in the wake of her charges.

She wrote: ‘As you all know, Katie was there for me when I needed her and I of course am there for her!

‘Right now, please give us all space. And sorry to those requests to myself and my manager, we will not be talking about this or doing any interviews about it, unless Katie herself or her family wish me to.

‘Our friendship over 21 years is built on trust. At this point I just reiterate what her family have already said and will support all in private.

‘To anyone else out there who needs help – ask for it and you’ll be surprised at the support that’s given to you. Asking is the hardest but first step.’
