Zoe Ball wants to spend the rest of her life with DJ husband Norman Cook.

The couple's relationship hit the rocks in 2003 after the BBC Radio 2 presenter admitted to having an affair, but after making up they are now happier than ever with their two children - ten-year-old son Woody and one-year-old daughter Nelly.

"I like to think Norm and I will stay together and that we'll work through things, but you never know what's around the corner - I want to grow old with him, hopefully," she told New!

"It would take a hell of a lot to make me walk away now. Norman and I found each other again. Had we carried on drinking, we wouldn't have survived as a family. We had already been through a lot as a couple - I left and it was quite messy."

Zoe, who turned 40 last November, admitted it was hard to turn sober initially but reckons it has changed her life for the better.

"We really needed to do some growing up and I'm now so glad I did it. It was really difficult, but it gets easier. When I drank, I'd go crazy and I hated myself. I turned into a ranting nightmare. It was horrible," she recalled.

And she hasn't been tempted to have a sneaky drink.

"It's quite hard when we're on holiday. It's just not worth it. I was so much happier not drinking," she said.
