Alongside the snap, Denise wrote: ‘Good morning!! Celebrating 9 yrs this week as ambassador for @lighterlife. I learnt the mental tools to address my emotional eating which was in danger of replacing my alcohol addiction.

‘I use the flexifasting plan and eat normally the rest of the time. I enjoy all my favourite foods but I no longer let food and crooked thinking control me. I’m a healthy size 12/14 and that’s fine by me.

‘I celebrate my curves, my lumps, bumps, saggy boobs and cellulite because my 64 yr old body has served me well despite the reverse not always being true.’

The actress, marked the milestone by sharing two snaps of herself on her Instagram, taken a decade apart, and penned a poignant message about her journey.

She wrote: ‘Got a few more lines and wrinkles but it’s in the eyes. They have it.

’10 yrs ago today I took my last alcoholic drink. Not a sherry trifle since and it’s been the best decision I ever made. It changed my life and the lives of everyone I love and who loves me.’

Denise added she was still haunted by the memories, and that losing her sobriety ‘terrifies me’.

She wrote: ‘If alcohol is making you miserable, sad, anxious, ashamed rather than a bit giddy on a Saturday night then you’re drinking too much.

‘Stopping isn’t easy and staying sober is a lifestyle but it’s a much much better life. So today I’m happier and healthier in my 60’s than I was in my 40’s and 50’s.

‘Today Im thinking of all those on the threshold of a major change and I can tell you it will be the best thing you’ll ever do.
