One picture showed a little glimpse of their table, with their drinks on display - a Coca Cola for mum Carol, and a whisky for Alex. "Date night," she simply wrote next to it. The next Story was a video of a cheeky Alex asking her mum: "What are celebrating?" to which Carol replied: "I am not allowed to say until tomorrow."

"I feel the time is right, I want to share more about my life and what's shaped me. I've always shown a strong side, but I'm ready to lower that protective shield. life has taught me showing vulnerability and not hiding flaws can be the bravest thing you can do. I speak my truth in 'How (not) To Be Strong' which is both exciting and scary.

After a brief return to the UK in early January, she then headed off to Portugal to stay at Juicy Oasis, a health retreat run by celebrity lifestyle coach Jason Vale – known as the Juice Master.
Taking to her Stories whilst there, Alex detailed her day at the retreat, which included a hike with incredible views, a "freshly made ginger shot" and a football match with the rest of the attendees.
The star also delighted fans by sharing a video taken by the villa's swimming pool. "Can't really complain, look" she told her fans as she lay on a lounger and showed them the villa's incredible mountain views.
