Christine McGuinness's new best friend Chelcee Grimes went ‘sober and celibate’ after Megan Barton Hanson split | The Sun

CHRISTINE McGuinness's pal Chelcee Grimes went sober and was celibate for 10 months after splitting from girlfriend Megan Barton Hanson.

The songwiter, who was seen kissing Christine last week, opened up about her lifestyle changes last year.


Chelcee, 30, explained about her drinking habits: "I was getting a bit of anxiety the next day and just that feeling that you are wasting the day.

"It would just sit in my gut. This dull, weird feeling that I couldn’t shake for two of three days.

"I felt like if I had a song that did really well I would have a drink, if I got back and I had a bad day I would maybe pour a glass of wine and I thought: 'I need to see if I can cut it out."

The former footballer, who recently co-hosted the podcast Building Queertopia, dated Love Island star Megan on and off for over a year and they were last spotted together in September 2020.

She said in an honest interview last year that going celibate while sober made her feel "so powerful".

Chelcee, who has also penned songs for Kylie Minogue and Dua Lipa, told OK! magazine: "It is amazing going on dates and being sober because you don’t take any s***. The things that you might let pass, characteristic traits or anything people do when you are tipsy on a date just doesn’t happen when I am sober."

She continued: "I just feel so much more in control and it is a powerful thing."

It comes as model and mum-of-three Christine, 34, shared a warm embrace with the former footballer during a super-Christmassy visit to Winter Wonderland in London last week.

Just days later, after Chelcee took to Instagram to talk of a "spark".

Meanwhile, Christine's ex-husband Paddy McGuinness, 49, was spotted looking serious in his silver van.

Christine split from presenter husband Paddy, 49, earlier this year and is living in their lavish £2.1million mansion.
