Vanessa White’s battle with alcohol

LONDON, Feb 2:  The Saturdays star Vanessa White has opened up about her battle with alcohol which threatened her career in 2010.
The 24-year-old singer was depressed because she wasn’t sure who she was, but revealed how band mate Rochelle Humes helped her through it, reported Contactmusic.
“I drank vodka mainly but, to be honest, I drank anything. It massively affected the band and I felt lonely and depressed. I didn’t know who I was underneath everything I was supposed to be,” White said.
“I’d arrive for work every morning hungover, then my voice started to go. I’d have to ask Una Foden to cover my solos,” she added.
She revealed her problems started to get out of control over three years ago and she was out every night drinking.
“My life started to spin out of control in 2010 and it was a dreadful year. I’d be out every night.”
However, White explained how her band mate Rochelle Humes helped her see the extent of her problem near the end of 2011 and got her back on track.
“She told me to come to hers and I stayed with her for two weeks, not drinking, and eating properly. It made me realise I had to stop,” she said. (PTI)
