The 47-year-old penned in the post:


"Special moment. 2 years no booze - through two of the toughest years of my life, I’m not sure I’d have survived intact had it had not been for my sobriety & #recovery Sending out some big love & #gratitude to everyone at #Lifeworks#Woking & my dear friends in the fellowship.


"Some extra big love to my family & special magic loved ones who encouraged me to get help & have supported me through everything," she added.


The It Takes Two presenter also had powerful words for those who were on the same journey.


"Thoughts and strength and love for any folk out there starting the path to recovery."

Sadly Zoe lost her partner, Billy Yates, to suicide in May 2017.


Opening up about the loss at a Sports Relief challenge earlier this year, the presenter explained why she wanted to raise awareness about mental illness.


"I lost my boyfriend last year, and I really wanted to do something and find some hope for people that are living with mental illness," she said.


"To help others find some help and see there are great projects out there. In 2016 over 6,000 people died by suicide. Help is really, really needed."

The presenter took part in a challenge called 'Zoe's Hardest Road Home.'


Zoe completed a 300 miles cycle from her birthplace in Blackpool, to her hometown of Brighton to raise money for Sports Relief.


Well done Zoe!
