“She is raring to go and cannot wait to get out onto the ice.

The mum-of-two, who is married to businessman Hugh Hanley, was just days from death in rehab when she hit rock bottom.

Michelle has worked hard to get sober and is now throwing herself into work.

She will join Love Island’s Ekin-Su, former footballer John Fashanu and ex-EastEnders actress Patsy Palmer on the hit ITV show.

Hollyoaks actress Carly Stenson will also be skating.

Speaking to The Sun earlier this year about turning her life around, Michelle said: “I just feel like the most lucky woman in the world because I’m here. I get to tell my story in my words and I’m still alive.

“I have the most beautiful family and friends.

“And I really do feel I deserve a second chance. I’m not going to give up on any dreams now.”

At her worst Michelle had been downing up to two bottles of wine and a bottle of vodka virtually every day since 2018.

Michelle, who has just finished a stint on the upcoming series of Channel 4's Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins, was staring death in the face but wouldn’t accept it until she went into the Priory last year.
