Vogue Williams has revealed why she no longer drinks alcohol.

The model and DJ has avoided drinking so that hangovers don't affect her packed schedule.

Writing in her Sunday World column, she said: "I am sort of on a booze ban at the moment.

"It’s not that I drink very often, but I found I was drinking the night before a day off and then spending the next day hungover and doing nothing.

"I was also finding myself still a little tired for work the following day, so until my diary eases up I am going to go booze free."

The 31-year-old, who is currently on holiday in Ibiza with her boyfriend Spencer Matthews, is two weeks into her alcohol ban.

"I get the worst hangovers, so it’s great to wake up feeling normal every day," she wrote.

"I have also noticed in the two short weeks since I stopped that people who are drinking on a night out hate it when you don’t join in.

"I must get asked at least 15 times on a night out if I want a drink, followed by ‘why aren’t you drinking’ and then more offers of booze.

"It’s a bit like Mrs Doyle in Father Ted. I’ve actually almost caved a few times just to shut people up."

However, the RTE presenter doesn't see her new lifestyle lasting forever, saying: "I doubt I'll be off the booze forever because I do love a red wine, but for now it's working out quite well for me."
