Sugababes Amelle Berrabah on drink driving arrest: "I was ashamed"

Sugababes Amelle Berrabah on drink driving arrest: "I was ashamed"

 |  By   
Amelle Berrabah has spoken about her drink driving arrest as a warning to others ahead of the Christmas season.

The Sugababes singer was pulled over by police back in 2010 on the morning after a night of drinking alcohol with friends.

She was later banned from driving for 14 months and ordered to pay a £2,000 fine after admitting the charges in court.

Appearing on ITV's Daybreak this morning (November 28), Berrabah warned viewers against driving "the day after the night before".

She said: "I got pulled over, literally didn't think anything of it. I felt absolutely fine, honestly. Obviously I'd never leave a bar and get straight into my car - that's just something I would never do - and yes, I was just slightly over [the limit] but that's not the point. I was over and I have to accept the consequences.

"It didn't even cross my mind [that I might still be over the limit]. It was just a horrible feeling, even when they said, 'Yes, you're over.'

"[It was] just the shame of it and that something could actually happen, and I think so many people don't actually realise that this probably happens every day to so many people."

Berrabah added that the shame of being found out should deter others from doing the same thing, saying that people knowing about what she had done felt "horrible".

"Imagine having an accident... it could be potentially very fatal and bad," she warned.

Berrabah's Sugababes bandmate Jade Ewen told Digital Spy earlier this year that the group were effectively over.

    Heidi sparkles in black minidress as she takes to the stage at charity lunch

    She knows her Range: Heidi sparkles in black minidress as she takes to the stage at charity lunch 

    She is used to performing with two girls by her side as part of the Sugababes, which are sadly no longer.
    But Heidi Range is just as comfortable being on stage on her own as she proved when she took to the stage on Wednesday at The Key 103 Ladies Lunch to raise money for Cash4Kids in Manchester.
    And the 30-year-old made sure she shone for her moment, wearing a short black minidress which caught the light as she moved about.

    The sparkly number fell to the middle of her thighs, leaving her shapely legs, which were covered in black tights, on show.
      While she opted for black heels, which elongated her legs further, she added a pop of colour with a slick of bright red lipstick. 
      Her blonde hair was styled with very loose waves, which she pushed to one side of her shoulder creating a sexy look.
      Hold a note: Heidi put her years of singing with the Sugababes to good use at the charity lunch

      Heidi is currently starring in a new Happy Days musical alongside Ben Freeman and Buck Fizz singer Cheryl Baker, which is set to tour around the country.
      The pretty blonde plays Pinky Tuscadero in the stage show which is based on the hugely popular American sitcom of the same name.
      Speaking about taking on the role the Liverpool-born star told SWM:  ‘I have done musicals before. I trained since I was three – singing and dancing – and did all of that before I joined the Sugababes.

      ‘So I’ve done a few shows, but it’s exciting to be going back on stage because I haven’t performed in a while.’
      Heidi, who said she watched the show while growing up, wears some rather skin-baring outfits on show.
      She shared: ‘One of the costumes is a pair of white hot pants, which is not great – I’m going to have to stay off the treats at Christmas.
      ‘I do go to the gym and stuff, but I think I will have to up the sessions before the show opens. But when you’re rehearsing and dancing every day, it gets you fit.’
      Extra height: The petite star wore a pair of high black heels, giving herself extra height, for the event
