The former Towie icon said she was desperate for things to “return to normal” and “get her roots dyed” as she spent the day reminiscing about life pre-pandemic.

Taking to social media, she said: “Guys I’ve had to come on here, I’ve been reduced to tears.

“Reminiscing what life was like before the pandemic – the videos, the memories, the parties.

“I’ve been crying my eyes out but happy tears, it’s all going to come back.”

The self-confessed diva said that she’s been reduced to using filters on social media to hide her dark roots.

She added: “I’ve had to use a filter, the hair is black, no massages, no facials. I mean things are bad guys. I’m just hoping Boris is going to give us some good news.

“I hate to admit this – I just long for the day when we can all get back to normal life and I don’t have to use this butterfly filter anymore, because the hair will be done, everything is going to be done.”

Yesterday, Boris Johnson outlined his plan for unlocking England – which will start in just two weeks’ time.

She said: “”I’ve seen Versace parcels Gucci parcels Chanel parcels so thank you I will find out who’s sent them tomorrow but the biggest gift of all is my dad who is recovering slowly and things are looking positive small steps but he’s getting stronger daily ! X 🙏🏻.”
