Lucy went on: ‘Each to their own. In my opinion it’s how you behave. Not the drug. Biggest thing for me with drinking is lack of aspiration and productivity. If you lose these to your vice it says things about that relationship.’

The songstress’ lifestyle overhaul has been well-documented, as she has revealed in the past that stopping drinking changed her life completely. 

She has used social media to showcase her phenomenal figure, the result of gruelling hours in the gym and a fitness regime she shared with curious fans during Monday evening’s question and answer session.  

Another fan queried: ‘Would love to stop drinking but feel pressure that I’m boring if I don’t. You’re great by the way!’, to which Lucy responded: ‘One of the biggest things I’ve learnt is that blindly doing things for other people…

‘Either to make them happy or to relinquish pressure, is inadvertently one of the most toxic ways you can live your life…

‘Primarily, what matters and what is going to help you in the long run is your well-being. If there are people in your life that challenge that it’s time to take a long hard look at your circles….

‘I used to the kind of person that would call a sober person ‘boring and that was all on me. Naysayers are often enablers.’

Lucy completely changed her lifestyle this year after splitting from her ex-wife Georgina Gordon, getting into fitness and later taking up running during lockdown.  

Speaking on FUBAR Radio in October, she explained that she ‘lost a bit of weight and had a divorce’ and then ‘rediscovered herself’, helping with her confidence.

Lucy told hosts Bobby Norris and Stephen Leng on Access All Areas that she hasn’t always felt confident but getting healthy has helped change her mindset and inspired her to write new song Flower.

She said: ‘I’ve never felt sexy in my life. I’ve never felt attractive or in tune with myself in that way. And I kind of like, found myself experiencing that and I really wanted to make a song that was a bit like, yeah, this is how I feel! This is sexy!’

Lucy split from her wife Georgina in November 2019, after six years together and fostering 12 children while they underwent fertility treatment. 

But in September, the media personality revealed she is now dating a ‘hot gal’ during an interview on FUBAR Radio.

The musician said: ‘I’ve been seeing her for a bit. I’ve been very open about my life, like a lot about my life my whole life, and this time I’m a bit like, do you know what, I’m going to keep some stuff for myself.’
