Kirsty Gallacher admits she hit 'rock bottom' after divorce and drink-drive conviction

The former Sky Sports presenter, 43, admitted she did not cope well following her split from former rugby ace Paul Sampson, with whom she has two children, in 2014.


She was also banned from the roads for drink-driving in 2017.

Kirsty revealed: “Divorce is horrific. I’ve had a tough few years. I hit pretty much rock bottom at one point.

“My poor body and brain has gone through it. I’ve not coped very well.

“And I was trying to be a great mum and keep it all going. I was pushing myself too much.”


Kirsty had doomed romances with rugby star Danny Cipriani, 31, actor Laurence Fox, 40, and comedian Jack Whitehall, 30, after her divorce.

She told Natalie Pinkham’s In The Pink Podcast: “When you split up with a long-term partner, you feel like you have to catapult yourself into another relationship.

“That’s what I did. They were lovely relationships, but they weren’t right.

"It’s part of the learning curve, but I was scared to be on my own.”


She even had advice from sex addict brother-in-law Russell Brand, who is married to her sister Laura, 31.

She revealed: “Russell said, ‘Kirsty, I think you need some time on your own’.

"I thought, ‘No I don’t!’ So I didn’t. Now, sorry Russell, you’re correct.”
