‘She would put on about half a stone and couldn’t figure out why. Then one morning she saw the detritus of a 3am blowout and worked it out, and has now been diagnosed with NS-RED.

‘But she has overcome greater obstacles than this and is determined to beat it.’

The condition is defined by sleepeducation.org as a parasomnia consisting of repeated episodes of compulsive binge eating and drinking after waking up in the night, which occur when you are only partially awake.

Earlier this week, Vicky opened up to her fans about her weight gain, saying it is ‘getting her down’.
