Dancing On Ice’s Patsy Palmer admits she took drugs before doing school run

Dancing On Ice star Patsy Palmer once revealed that she her drug addiction was so bad that she used before doing the school run.

The Bianca Jackson actress, 50, opened up about her struggle with drugs in her 2007 autobiography – All Of Me, Life, Love And Addiction.

In the book, Patsy revealed that in 2004 she would arrive on the EastEnders set "off her head on drugs" during her addiction, and that she chain-smoked cannabis.

She also admitted to using drugs before picking up her children from school, but she added that she would never smoke in the house as she did not want to leave "traces" behind for her kids.

She said in her autobiography: "By midday I was stoned. But it was OK because I could eat something and be fine by 3.30pm when I needed to leave before the school run.

"Three hours later, I had just finished my third joint and second jam doughnut and I stood in the middle of the room and thought, 'is this what my life has come to?"'

The star also said that she was "violently sick" after taking drugs, and that it left her feeling "physically ill, horrible and dirty".

Patsy later turned her life around and enrolled on a Twelve Step Fellowship Programme, ending her addiction.

The star has since moved to California with her family, where she works as a lifestyle guru and runs a hair product business.

She also regularly shares photographs of her glamorous life in Los Angeles, while posting inspiring messages on her Instagram page, including one snap where she held her arms open wide and captioned the post: "Looking at yourself when you are in a happy mindset is so much nicer than when we are feeling low and defeated or depleted."

"If you can do a guided meditation based on positive self image or repeat positive affirmations then take a good and proper look at yourself you will see your unique personality shine through."

Patsy is just one of 11 celebrities taking part in the latest series of Dancing On Ice, with her and pro partner Matt Evers scoring 21.0 from the judges during the ITV programme's 2023 premiere.
