It's been a tough year for Michelle Heaton, who went to rehab in April to receive treatment for alcohol and cocaine addiction, but the star is now feeling "so proud of herself" after celebrating 100 days sober.

The former Liberty X singer attended the National Television Awards alongside her husband Hugh Hanley and exclusively told OK! how she was feeling about being back on a red carpet.

The 42-year-old said: "I feel light and free. It's [Sobrierty] not an easy road, but it's certainly the better road.

"I'm just really proud of myself and so proud of my husband for being there for me every step of the way."

"It's just been amazing, and life is good," she added.

Michelle looked sensational with her partner Hugh by her side as she wore a red gown while her husband wore a matching red tie with his black suit for the event.

Before making their way to the O2 Arena for the awards, which are sponsored by OK!, Michelle and Hugh posed for a loved-up snap that she shared on Instagram.

She captioned the post: "Ready for the ball…"

"Wow you both look stunning," one fan wrote, while another shared: "You look stunning."

Earlier today, the singer revealed she was "full of anxiety" and while she would normally "drink on those emotions", tonight the star said she is proud to be clean and sober.

While sharing snaps of her gorgeous red Hollywood glam gown, she said: "Tonight is our first red carpet event together in a very long time.

"I’m really nervous and full of anxiety – I would drink on those emotions. But today I am not. Today I am 134 days clean and sober and I will be with my husband, my best friend and my rock @hughhanley who gives me so much strength."

Michelle explained: "I’m so proud to be at the #ntas with @ok_mag flying the flag for those in recovery.

"For anyone who needs help with addiction, I can’t give medical advice, but I’d advise you to ask for help as it’s out there. I am eternally grateful that I did."

The star then shared the details of her look: "Now, the dress! @piamichi who’s dressed me every year and is one of our best friends has at last minute came to my plea lol.

"See which one I choose later but for now. This is my back."
